What are the physical features of Jamaica?
May-12-2009 by Wellesley Gayle
"The island of Jamaica can be divided into three main types of land forms: the central mountain chain formed by igneous and metamorphic rocks; the karst limestone hills in the Cockpit area; the low-lying coastal plains and interior valleys.
Limestone formation occurs all over the island, but especially in the western areas". (discoverjamaica.com).
