It was added that Jamaicans have “an accent that’s the envy of the
English-speaking world and the planet’s most distinctive and recognizable
hairstyle. To all backpackers, dreadlocks only look cool on Jamaicans.”

They also dubbed sprint legend Usain Bolt as the “icon of cool,” for being the fastest human ever timed and nine-time Olympic Gold medal winner. However, they said what makes Jamaica “not so cool” are its “high murder rate and widespread homophobia”.

Here are CNN’s Top 10 coolest nationalities:

Brazilians, Singaporeans, Jamaicans, Mongolians, Americans, Koreans, Spanish, Japanese, Botswana, and Chinese.

Now that Jamaica has been rated as the 3rd Coolest Nation, this will further boost tourism and also put the country in the first-timers’ good book.
