Where Is The Caribbean?The Caribbean region consists of the Caribbean Sea and its many islands, as well as adjoining continental beach areas. The Caribbean is bounded on the north by the islands of Cuba, Hispaniola, and Puerto Rico, on the east by the Leeward Islands and Windward Islands of the Lesser Antilles, on the south by South America, and on the west by Central America. To the northwest lies the Gulf of Mexico. The major islands of the Caribbean Sea include the Greater Antilles in the north and the Lesser Antilles in the east. The Bahamas, although not strictly in the Caribbean Sea region, lie just to the north of the Greater Antilles.
