The physical appearance of Jamaican men

Tall and lean

While there is a lot of diversity regarding how Jamaican men are built, most tend to have tall and lean frames. However, if your preference is more muscular men or guys with a sexy dad-bod, you will still find your perfect match in Jamaica. 

Rich, chocolate complexions

Jamaican men are the perfect embodiment of tall, dark, and handsome. Their beautiful dark skin is one of the most attractive things about them. The best part is that they have very good skin, which perfectly complements their rich complexions.  

Hairy fellas

If you end up with a Jamaican man, you will have to deal with hair. From long dreadlocks to bushy beards, Jamaican men love their hair long and scruffy.

However, if you prefer a clean-cut and smooth face, you might find someone as some Jamaican men prefer to keep their hair short and faces shaved.

The personality of Jamaican men


Jamaican men make for the best travel buddies. They are super adventurous and not afraid to try new experiences. They are also fantastic guides if you want to make your trip to Jamaica a memorable one.

Life of the party 

What they say about Jamaican men and their love for parties is true. So prepare yourself for a lot of clubs and rave dates as you get to know each other!


Jamaican men may love a good time, but they do not hold back when it comes to being serious and hustling for a better life. 

How to meet a Jamaican man

Online dating in Jamaica 

Online dating is by far the easiest way to meet a Jamaican man. It allows you to test the waters before fully committing your time and money to an actual physical visit.

However, online dating scams are quite prevalent in Jamaica, especially if you use the wrong online dating platform. 

For a safe and fulfilling experience, we suggest you work with international dating sites like AmoLatina. AmoLatina.com, in particular, stands out with its strict security and anti-fraud policies and measures. 

You could also try local dating websites, in which case Tinder and Dating.com are some of the most popular sites in Jamaica. 

Meeting Jamaican men in Jamaica 

While finding love online is convenient, nothing beats meeting Jamaican men in their natural habitat. You will get to see them in their element, from how they spend their days to how they relate with friends and family. 

A great way to meet your Jamaican match is through bars and nightclubs. Here are the three main Jamaican cities and popular party spots you could hit up for a chance at love.


Kingston is the capital city of Jamaica. It also has one of the most vibrant night scenes, which is an impressive contrast to the serious, business vibe during the day. 

If you are in Kingston and want to meet some Jamaican hunks, here is a list of nightclubs and bars you could check out:


Portmore is by the beach and thus ideal if you want to have some fun in the sun and sand and meet Jamaican singles at the many beach parties. Some of the most popular party spots in Portmore include:

  • V Bar
  • Go Go Club

Montego Bay

Montego Bay is another great option if you want to have fun by the beach. It has a more upscale vibe compared to Portmore, and this extends to their clubbing scene. Here are some of the most popular clubs and bars in the city.

Pros and cons of dating a Jamaican man

They are fun 

There will never be a dull moment when you date a Jamaican man. Whether you are out clubbing with his friends or having a chill day at the beach, they always have an idea on how to spend time together having fun.

They are great in bed

If you have listened to at least one raunchy dancehall song, you know exactly what you have to look forward to when it comes to intimacy with a Jamaican man. They are known for being great and passionate lovers that never disappoint. 

They are family-oriented

Family means a lot to Jamaicans in general. So your Jamaican beau will most likely have them involved in the relationship pretty early. So don’t be surprised if you are invited to a family dinner early in the relationship. 

They are great communicators

One of my favorite things about Jamaican men is that you will always know what they think and how they feel. They are fantastic at communicating their expectations, desires, and feelings, so you don’t have to keep guessing. 

They are great cooks

Jamaican men are big foodies. And who could blame them, considering how amazing Jamaican cuisine is?

The best part is that they are also great cooks, so you will have a lot of delicious home-cooked meals to look forward to while.


They aren’t always faithful

Jamaican men are very possessive of their women but unfortunately do not hold themselves to the same standards. From constant flirting to straight-up infidelity, unfaithfulness is one of those battles you should prepare yourself for.

However, it helps to communicate your needs and boundaries as you define the relationship.

They can be workaholics

Remember when we hailed Jamaicans for being ambitious? Well, it isn’t always a good thing. It is common in Jamaica for people to have more than two jobs, which means that you may not have much time to spend together.  

What type of woman does a Jamaican man like? 


Jamaican men are very free-spirited and prefer women who can keep up with their adventurous energy. That means you have to be ready to get out of your comfort zone and try a few new fun things. 


When it comes to physical appearance, all Jamaican men have their individual preferences. However, what they all have in common is their appreciation for a well-groomed woman with a good sense of fashion. 

Knows her way around a kitchen

It might be time to take those cooking classes if you want to bag yourself a Jamaican man. They love their meals home-cooked and made with love and will always gravitate towards women who can cook. 

Loyal and faithful

It might seem like a bit of a double standard, but Jamaican men cannot stomach infidelity. They want a woman who will be faithful and ready to shut down any advances from other men. 

Final thoughts on dating a Jamaican guy 

With all this information, you know all there is to know about dating a Jamaican guy, from where to meet them, what to expect, and how best to stand out to them. 

You are now more than ready to find yourself a Jamaican boyfriend. You are in for a fun and interesting experience!
