Ports of Call

The Caribbean region is comprised of the Caribbean Sea as well as all of the islands that can be found to the southeast of the Gulf of Mexico, to the east of Central America and Mexico, and to the north of South America. There are only a few countries that border this region, and some of its numbered cays, islands, islets, and populated reefs front those few countries. It's possible that thinking of the Caribbean comes to mind when you mention the Turks and Caicos or the Bahamas, but these island groups are actually located in the tropical Atlantic and have several characteristics that set them apart from their neighbors in the area. Get an overview of port-of-call stops on vacations to the Caribbean islands.
