JAMAICA

JAMAICA: ARTS, HISTORY, CULTURE

Jamaica is a mountainous island in the Caribbean Sea about 600 miles (965 kilometers) south of Miami, Florida. It is part of the chain of Caribbean islands called the Greater Antilles, along with Cuba, Hispaniola, and Puerto Rico. Jamaica was formed when the North American and Caribbean tectonic plates collided about 25 million years ago.

 

Most of the population lives in the city and one third of all Jamaicans live in the capital of Kingston. More than 90 percent of the population is of African descent, but many other people have come from China, India, Germany, and Syria to find work on the island. Jamaica's motto is "Out of Many, One People."

 

Jamaica has it all — sea, rivers, mountains and a wide-open jungle of wilderness. During your vacation, try the outdoor activities that will make your heart race with adrenaline as you encounter the greenery all around you.
