The best map of Jamaica is available online through Google Maps. Google Maps offers a wealth of information that no other printed map can offer to you.
Not only is this interactive map easy to use but also free and detailed. There is much more than knowing where the hotels, restaurants, parks and other attractions are located.
Now let us take a look at how to use a Google Map of Jamaica.
Go to maps.google.com and search for “Jamaica”. The result is a basic Jamaican map that will show you a few familiar places such as Montego Bay, Spanish Town, Portmore and Kingston.
To the left of the map, you can zoom in and out of the location by selecting (+) and (-). So if you zoom in (+) on Spanish Town, the capital of Saint Catherine, you will find neighbouring communities such as Ewarton, Angels and Linstead.
The best time to zoom in is after you have found your desired destination.
You want a more realistic sight of what Jamaica is like? Select the satellite view. With the satellite approach, you have a more down-to-earth outlook of the island (pun intended).
This view offers actual images of the island such as cars, hotels, shops, bridges, round-a-bouts, trees and more.
How about the weather? Move your mouse cursor over the “photos” label at the top right-hand corner and a drop-down menu will appear.
Now select “weather.”
Here you will find a weather map of Jamaica that will inform you of all the temperatures. If you are interested in the weather forecasts for a specific area, select the area on the map and to the left, you will see a five-day forecast.
Never been to Jamaica before? View pictures or watch videos that were captured all around the island. Watching these videos will give you a preview of what you can expect to experience when you finally arrive here.
Examine the pictures and see why millions of tourists come to my island Jamaica every year.
For the latest pictures taken by tourists and locals, select the webcam option that will provide you with the most current pictures taken by webcams.
Even though Google Maps is my favourite Jamaican map, I would still advise you to purchase a printed map like the Shell Road Map.
This map will come in handy when hiking, camping or just everyday travel.
Besides, maps like the Shell Road Map can be used as a great souvenir for your friends, family and even yourself.
A Google Map is still the best Jamaican map because it is free, detailed, accurate, diversified and up-to-date.
