Jamaica Is 3rd Coolest Nation Globally – CNN Travel

Jamaica is among the coolest nations in the world according to a recent ranking by CNN Travel. The ranking which features 14 nations, lists Jamaica as the 3rd coolest country globally.

According to CNN Travel, Jamaicans boast “an accent that’s the envy of the English-speaking world and the planet’s most distinctive and recognisable hairstyle.”

The post labels the world’s fastest man – Usain Bolt as an “icon of cool” and offers  a lighthearted tip to non- nationals:

Note to backpackers: dreadlocks only cool on actual Jamaicans.


Contrastingly, the post also mentions ‘high murder rate and widespread homophobia’ as “not so cool” things pertaining to Jamaica.

Brazil tops the list of the world’s coolest nations followed by Singapore. Mongolia is fourth on the list, with the United States of America completing the top 5.
