The Rio Nuevo is a river in Jamaica. It runs through the parish of Saint Mary, meeting the Caribbean Sea in the Rio Nuevo Bay, on the north Jamaican coast. In 1658, it was the site of the Battle of Rio Nuevo between Spanish and English forces, the largest battle to have been fought on Jamaican soil.[1]
