When we think of the Caribbean, most of us think of only Islands. Countries like the Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, Puerto Rico, The Cayman Islands, Jamaica, The Virgin Islands, etc. come to mind.
But what about Central American countries like Nicaragua, Panama, Costa Rica, etc., and South American countries such as Colombia, Venezuela, French Guiana, etc???
These are also part of the beautiful Caribbean. We just don’t think of them as such. Yes, the Caribbean is mostly made up of island nations and territories but the following continental countries also have Caribbean coasts and islands within the Caribbean:
* Costa Rica
* French Guiana
So the next time that you are thinking about embarking on a Caribbean journey, why not look toward some of these places as well. You’ll find the same tropical climate and beautiful beaches you’ll obviously find in the island setting and you’ll also find access to a vast new continental territory.
