Transcript of "Countries from a to z jamaica"

  1. 1. Jamaika (engl. Jamaica) ist ein Inselstaat innerhalb des Commonwealth of Nations in der Karibik. Der Name leitet sich vom arawakischen Xaymaca oder Chaymakas ab, was so viel wie Quellenland oder Holz- und Wasserland bedeutet. Die ehemalige Kolonie ist für ihre vielseitige Kultur, aber auch für ihre sozialen und wirtschaftlichen Probleme bekannt. Jamaika ist die drittgrößte Insel der Großen Antillen. Sie liegt 145 Kilometer südlich von Kuba und – getrennt durch den Jamaica Channel – 160 Kilometer westlich von Hispaniola (Kiskeya) mit den Staaten Haiti und Dominikanische Republik. Das mittelamerikanische Festland ist 635 Kilometer von der Westspitze entfernt. Bei einer Länge von 235 Kilometern und einer Breite zwischen 35 und 82 Kilometern nimmt die Hauptinsel eine Fläche von 10.991 Quadratkilometern ein. Jamaica is an island country situated in the Caribbean Sea, comprising the third-largest island of the Greater Antilles. The island, 10,990 square kilometres (4,240 sq mi) in area, lies about 145 kilometres (90 mi) south of Cuba, and 191 kilometres (119 mi) west of Hispaniola, the island containing the nation-states of Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Jamaica is the fifth-largest island country in the Caribbean. The indigenous people, the Taíno, called it Xaymaca in Arawakan, meaning the "Land of Wood and Water" or the "Land of Springs".
