    I haven't been to Jamaica but I've been to the other two. I prefer Cancun/Playa del Carmen. That being said Punta Cana is great.

    I'm probably biased but I prefer the Mexican culture and food. I have found the people to be friendlier too, in my experiences

    If you choose Cancun have a look at Secrets Maroma Beach. If you go with Punta Cana try the Iberostar resort there. The Secrets there is good but the we did like the Iberostar better.

    if you "were middle aged" are you still, or have you got older?

    Gives the holiday a bit more edge.

    Love Jamaica, hire a car and get out and about, the Calabash in Montego Bay is good and reasonably priced.

    Edit, wrong island Paradise Palms is good in Mo Bay though

    If you feel threatened you just remind the evil doers you are/were their colonial masters. Smooths everything over from that point.
