Jamaica's Coat of Arms

What Does Xaymaca Mean?

Xaymaca goes down to the roots of it all. The Island of Jamaica was first inhabited by the Taíno who is a subgroup of the Arawak, the Caribbean indigenous people. The Taíno called their home Xaymaca which means “The Land of Wood and Water.”

After several years, the island’s name was change to Jamaica, which carries the same meaning today. Because of the Natives, the Spanish, the British, the African Slaves and many immigrants over the years, the island is a melting pot of different cultures and traditions, which creates the uniqueness of Jamaica; hence the motto for Jamaica is “OUT OF MANY, ONE PEOPLE.”

Jamaica is a beautiful country whose culture inspires some of the world’s most influential music, athletes and most importantly FOOD.
