can you drive to Jamaica?

Can you drive to Jamaica? That was it! A very direct question.

Not sure asked, but although the simple answer is NO, I grabbed the opportunity to respond in detail, sharing some equally helpful information.

Can you drive to Jamaica?

ANSWER: by Wellesley

Hi there!
Thanks for asking.

A simple question warrants a simple answer :-)
The answer is No you can't drive to Jamaica.

I presume your next question is... Why Not?

The reason is that Jamaica is an island in the Caribbean sea, completely surrounded by water, and therefore not connected by land to any other nation.

And your next question is... "Where Is Jamaica?"
Yeah I know I am almost a mind reader, lol :-)

Well, I covered that in detail on my where is Jamaica article, but Jamaica lies in the Caribbean sea in an area that is called is called the Tropical Climate Belt.

We are positioned approximately 18 degrees north and 77 degrees west. Our nearest point to the USA is Florida Cays, which is approximately 240km to the north of Cuba.

By the way, that Tropical Climate Belt I spoke of earlier is the region between two important lines of Latitude, The Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn, and so, the climate of Jamaica is hot all year round, with no marked change in the temperature from one seaon to another.

I hope this adequately answers your question.

I'll also suggest that you read more on driving around Jamaica as a tourist though, as well as my response post to the question of Should I rent a car in Jamaica?
