The symphony of pulsating reggae music, the rush of rivers and waterfalls, the natural sounds of gentle mountains and valleys. These are the great characteristics of Jamaica, a formidable and powerful land, known worldwide for its artistic creations and legendary culture. All these characteristics are present in their proposal for the international exhibition. The proud islanders say that this is the most Eden-like land on earth. Its pavilion shows the richness of its landscape, lined by impressive cliffs, bordered by Caribbean waves and endless golden sand beaches and turquoise waters. The beauty of Jamaica's natural geography extends from its coastline to the mountains, with splendid views of forested valleys, waterfalls, rivers speckled with brilliant hues and a rich diversity of flora and fauna. Jamaica's culture, with its strength, exoticism and richness, is the other fundamental attraction of the country. Perhaps because of its African roots, the island and its people have always been attached to the rhythm that permeates everything that makes up the island with colour and joy. The African influence can also be seen in the Rastafari movement, which is the result of the island's diversity.
