Xavier Murphy, founder and webmaster of Jamaicans.com, says, “We are product to celebrate the tenth year doing the Best of Jamaica worldwide. We sent our survey to over 40,000 users around the world this year and got a tremendous response. We also added a few new cities for 2009 and will continue to do so as the Jamaican community continues to grow globally.” Murphy, who is Jamaican and lives in Florida with his family, says that the idea for the survey stems from his desire to share Jamaican culture with the rest of the world. “Visitors to Jamaica love the idea that they can see users’ choices for the best places when they visit Jamaica. And if they live in a city with a Jamaican presence, they can find a guide to the best of Jamaica there.”
