Ok. I have a pretty streamlined Adwords campaign that has been running on autopilot for a while and I am down in Jamaica on 5 day getaway with the wife and kids. Of course and I can't help but to get online and start checking stuff, so I land on a domain lander page for a keyword domain in my industry and there is my ad while I am surfing on the wireless network of this Jamaican hotel and all my settings are set to U.S.A only. What is up here?

Few things that Google may use in that case:
Is there a geo related keyword in your query? IP address. I have no idea if it's possible that your hotel may have US related IP. Personalized search. Are you logged into your Google account? Google thinks you're crazy about your ads. ;)

I have known of a multinational that connected all its offices through a private network then connected the private network to the net in New York so every body had a US IP. If the Hotel was part of a US owned chain that may be the reason.
