Feel like getting away for a while, because you are due a
vacation and would like to escape to a place where you can relax, be
enchanted and enjoy a variety of day and evening activities – The
Caribbean is the perfect place for you!
The Caribbean is a region of the Americas consisting of the Caribbean Sea, its islands, and the surrounding coasts. The region is located southeast of North America, east of Central America, and to the north and west of South America.
Situated largely on the Caribbean Plate, the area comprises more
than 7,000 islands, islets, reefs, and cays. Geopolitically,
the West Indies are usually reckoned as a sub-region of North America
and are organized into 27 territories including sovereign states,
overseas departments, and dependencies. At one time, there was a
short-lived country called the Federation of the West Indies
composed of ten English-speaking Caribbean territories.
The region takes its name from that of the Carib, an ethnic group present in the Lesser Antilles and parts of adjacent South America at the time of European contact.
In the English-speaking Caribbean, someone from the Caribbean is usually referred to as a "West Indian," although the phrase "Caribbean person" is sometimes used.
