57: Jamica is in the western Caribbean, and is completely surrounded by the Caribbean Sea. At 4,411 square miles, Jamaica is approximately the size of Connecticut, U.S.A. and one of the largest islands in the Caribbean. Prehistoric Jamaica was volcanic, and the mountains that soar to 7,402 feet are higher than any in the eastern half of North America. These mountains run all through the island’s center, with a narrow coastal plain on either side. Some 150 rivers, numerous waterfalls and an abundance of trees and flowering plants are found across the island, earning Jamaica the title land of wood and water.” The south resembles the African savannah or Indian plains, and has alternating black and white sand beaches as well as mineral springs.
