An island is a piece of land surrounded by water, especially the waters of a sea or ocean. A country is territory governed by a head of state such as King, President etc.
Caribbean countries are countries located in the Caribbean Sea. Countries located in the Caribbean Sea are called “Islands” because they are surrounded by water. Nevertheless, they are both countries and islands at the same time. For this reason, the countries of the Caribbean are often called “island countries”.
Here is a list of all “Caribbean countries”, or all “Caribbean island countries”. This list includes all countries in the Caribbean Sea; but it may also include countries not in the Caribbean sea, but close enough to be part of the “Caribbean Region”.
The following is a list of “Caribbean countries” which fit the qualification because they are located in the Caribbean sea or close enough to be considered a Caribbean Country because it is “within the Caribbean Region”.
