Jamaica lies about 145 kilometres (90 mi) south of Cuba, and 191 kilometres (119 mi) west of Hispaniola (the island containing the countries of Haiti and the Dominican Republic). *Kingston (map), the capital city and centre of business, located on the south coast. *Montego Bay (map), one of the best known cities in the Caribbean for tourism, located on the north coast.
*Negril (map) is famous for its 7 miles of cool, white sand beaches and another 7 miles of 40′ cliffs. One of the most beautiful towns in Jamaica, it has a more laid back atmosphere than that of Montego Bay and is more touristy than *Ocho Rios (map).
Bob Marley is probably the best known Jamaican musician.
