New! Here's the latest (and best) Jamaican map, courtesy of Google! Use the "+" and "-" icons on the map to ZOOM and explore in more detail.
After all, you get a graphical view of our beautiful island. It will outline that Jamaica is approximately 235 kilometers long, and varies between 35 and 82 kilometers wide.
You will also notice that the island is the largest island of the Commonwealth Caribbean and the third largest of the Greater Antilles, after Cuba and Hispaniola, spanning an area of 10,911 square kilometers.
The country lies 145 kilometers south of Cuba and 160 kilometers west of Haiti. Our country capital Kingston, is about 920 kilometers southeast of Miami.
Below is a location map of the island. You will realize that Jamaica (circled) is only a dot! Don't be fooled by our size though, we are BIG! Sports, Entertainment and Music are typical examples of where we shine brightly!
Thanks to Encylopedia Britannica, Here too is a neatly presented physical map of Jamaica, showing the main Town and City Areas!

In addition, If you are interested in a Road Map, typically you would have to pay a price, but I found a 'philanthropic' group, The Jamaica Caves Organization, that makes one absolutely free.
You only have to worry about printing! They also make some of the main towns (eg. Montego Bay) clickable so can get even more detail. [Here is the Link]
The Map of Jamaica is indeed a useful guide to our visitors and students interested in our country.
