Trelawny Parish, Jamaica
Trelawny Parish in northwest Jamaica is known for its laidback atmosphere and as the birthplace of Usain Bolt, the fastest man on earth. The parish is also known for its many sinkholes and limestone caves, including the Windsor and Carambi Caves known for their beauty and phosphate deposits. Several caves have carvings made by the Taino people many centuries ago.
