Mission, Vision & Goals

JAMAICA BACKPACKERS OVERALL MISSION

The overall, high-level Jamaica Backpackers Mission is to increase Jamaican Community Tourism both Quantitatively & Qualitatively by inspiring the Small Tourism Industry, Business Owners, Employees & Volunteers to turn Every Visitor Encounter into a Positive Experience.

We want Visitors to feel that we Jamaicans are Happy to See them here so when they go Home they Tell their Friends that People in Jamaica were Helpful, Informative & Fun to Visit!

Standards & Core Values

Factors Influencing Ambassador Selection for Meet-Ups & Trips

The Number of Travelers registered for a particular trip or Meet-Up regulates the number of Cultural Ambassador Chaperones that are required.

Traveler demographics are very important – an Ambassador Trip with a high number of Male Travelers will require more Male Ambassadors.

When Tourists Request & Schedule Overnight Ambassador Trips directly with our Office, Male Ambassadors are booked to room with Male travelers while Female Ambassador chaperones room with Female travelers.

Enviro-Social Responsibilities

The Rasta Routes Cultural Ambassador Program supports Sustainable Tourism and respects Natural and Man-made Environments, bringing both Cultural & Economical Enrichment to Local Jamaican communities, with the Primary Goal of leaving a lasting Positive Image of Jamaican with Each & Every Visitor!

Additionally, Jamaica Backpackers, Cultural Ambassadors & the entire RastaRoutes.com Project seeks to increase Jamaica’s competitiveness in attracting & hosting Value-Conscious Backpacker Travelers in Environmentally, Socially & Culturally Sustainable Ways that Positively Impact our Country’s international image & Economic bottom line.

Government & Focus Groups

How can Others Support the Rasta Routes Cultural Ambassador Initiative?

We welcome Support from Chambers of Commerce & Local Governments, Community Organizations & Volunteers!

Support will Help to offset the Administrative costs of Establishing & Maintaining this Valuable Community Tourism Resource.

In many cases, Community & National Citizen Networks – rather than the official Police, can be a More Effective Response to Street and Tourist Crime. Many people affected by Street Crime never report what has happened to them – precisely because working with the Police can be a bureaucratic nightmare.

Ideally, What is Needed is a National Tourist Support Network where Travelers can receive Good Samaritan Help, Directions & Assistance in Multiple Languages.
