    The island of Jamaica is made up of mountains inland, surrounded by a narrow coastal plain. That's why all major cities are situated on the coast. The principals' cities are Kingston, the capital, and Montego Bay. The Jamaican mountain ranges are called the Blue Mountains; they are part of the highest peaks of the West Indies.


    The Jamaican climate is tropical, with a hot and humid climate, although the climate of the earth is more temperate. Rainfall is very uneven from one region to another (the northeast is more exposed) and is more abundant from June to December. The risk of cyclones weighs on the island in late summer and early fall.


    Two-thirds of the island consists of limestone plateaus punctuated by many karst formations, the most spectacular of which are located in the "country of the cockpit".
