Bluefields is located in Westmorland on the beautiful island of Jamaica. It sits at 18.166 latitude and -78.027 longitude with an elevation of 18 metres. Originally called Oristan by the Spaniards, it was the third settlement to be established in Jamaica having been established in 1519. It was a strategic place for the Spaniards to monitor ships going to and from Spain however, in the 1600s, the British arrived naming it Bluefields(originally spelt ‘blewfields‘) instead. The Spanish and the British however cannot take credit for founding this beautiful and multipurpose land. Archaeological research has shown that Tainos had inhabited the area in 750 AD-1500 AD.
