Go to Jamaica for $128US including air - in 1977!!!

Don't get too excited about this offer, we're about 34 years too late!   BUT, as this ad shows, you could have booked a a 4 day/3 night from $128US INCLUDING air. 

It's also interesting to note the value of the Jamaican dollar was $1.20 for our one US dollar.  As of this post, the current Jamaica dollar is around $85 for one US dollar.  Check for yourself here, US to Jamaican dollar Converter.  What all that means I have no clue, the price of goods in Jamaica must have gone way up!
