GEOGRAPHY

Jamaica is the third largest island in the Caribbean and is located about 90 miles south of Cuba and a 1 1/2 hour plane ride from Miami, Florida. It is about the size of Long Island, New York stretching for over 146 miles from east to west and 51 miles from north to south. As a small country it really has it all: beaches, mountains, forests, rivers, mangroves and cities. Negril is 47 miles away from the airport on the Western tip of Jamaica.

 
 

WEATHER

Jamaica enjoys a year round warm climate with daytime temps in the mid-80's to low 90's. Evenings are generally cooler and comfortable with temperature's in low 70's. The sun is extremely strong and protection is highly recommended. The rainy season is in May and October. During January through April you will rarely encounter bad weather. Dress is very casual, so pack lightly!

 
 

TIME ZONE

Jamaica is in the eastern time zone but does not participate in daylight savings.

 
 

LANGUAGE

English is the official language in Jamaica. Although everyone speaks and understands English, Jamaicans speak a dialect known as "Patois," a creolized or abridged version of English which might be hard to understand to most first time visitors. Most Jamaicans will be happy to teach the average tourist a thing or two about "speaking Patois." Not to worry though. There really is no language barrier in Jamaica.
