Map of Jamaica
Jamaica is located in the middle of the warm Caribbean Sea, just south of Cuba, and west of Hispanola (the island split between Haiti and Dominican Republic). Jamaica evolved from the arc of an ancient volcano which erupted out of the sea millions of years ago.
In terms of geography there are three regions: the eastern Blue & John Crow Mountains region; the central valleys and plateaus, and the coastal plains which includes Negril, Montego Bay and the South Coast. Half the island is over 300 metres in elevation with the Blue Mountain Peak being the highest point at 2500 metres.
Tainos were the first inhabitants of Jamaica and the name Jamaica is derived from the Taino word Xaymaca which means land of wood and water. Xaymaca is an appropriate name as the island has over 120 rivers and streams, many waterfalls and tropical rainforests.
