Mona is a neighbourhood in southeastern Saint Andrew Parish, approximately eight kilometres from Kingston, Jamaica. A former sugar plantation, it is the site of a reservoir serving the city of Kingston and of the main campus of the University of the West Indies. Without any formal definition, Mona is bordered by the neighbouring communities of Liguanea, Hope Pastures, Beverly Hills, August Town, and Papine. Mona is also framed by the north-eastern edge of the Long Mountain range. Mona, better known as Mona Heights is classified as one of the wealthier areas of Kingston and is also regarded as an uptown neighbourhood.
