  2. from blue mountains you can see the north and south side of Jamaica - on a clear day you can see Cuba!
  3. is one of the longest continuing ranges in the Caribbean
  4. they dominate the eastern third of Jamaica
  5. more then 200 species of birds live in blue mountains
  6. The famous Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee is cultivated on the lower slopes, while higher slopes are preserved as forest.
