    The Caribbean is not a country it is an area. There are numerous islands in the area and each one belongs to a different country or is an independent country.

  • West Indies is the general geographical term for the many islands of the Caribbean, the largest of which are Cuba, Hispaniola (politically Haiti and the Dominican Republic), Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Trinidad, Guadeloupe, and Martinique. After Columbus' landing on San Salvador in 1492, Spain claimed the whole region. Sugar plantations were established and black African slaves introduced.

    Source(s): Caribbean is a region is not a country I'm from Haiti
    • You stated ....and black African slaves introduced. I am a descendant of two of those black slaves. However, could you please explain IF there were also white African slaves? For, ever since the European devils started "discovering countries" that were occupied by other people this world is a mess.

    The carribbean is not a country, it is a region. It is an area, like North America, or Europe, but not a specific country like the United States. It doesn not belong to a country, but it The Carribbean is a region made up of many countries, such as St. Maarten, Barbados, and others. It does not belong to one country.

    On your sign in, just put the country that you live in. If you do not know that, just put something like the USA or Uzbekistan.

    The Caribbean is a region. It doesn't belong to any country, as it is a collection of countries. For purposes of going on line, most of us are forced to swallow our pride and agree to be classified as living in North America/USA. That's certainly where my computer thinks I live!

    *Tongue in cheek reply*

    Well lately the Venezuela/China axis are trying to take over the region.......

    Venezuela's oil deal called "Petro-Caribe" along with Chavez's plan for a Latin American-OPEC cartel.

    In addition to Venezuela's new claim on a fewislands around the Caribbean (including one off the south coast of Haiti...)

    The nation of China is launching construction companies across the many capitals of the Caribbean, and they are now building things from stadiums and hospitals to brand new resorts...
