It is situated in the Caribbean Sea, about 145 kilometres (90 mi) south of Cuba, and 191 kilometres (119 mi) west of Hispaniola, the island harboring the nation-states Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Its indigenous Arawakan-speaking Taino inhabitants named the island Xaymaca, meaning the "Land of Wood and Water", or the "Land of Springs".
