    Central America is it's own region but geographically it is considered the southern most part of the North American continent. There is no Central American Continent so the line between North America and South America is the Colombia/Panama border.

    There are 3 big areas: North America, Central America and South America.

    From Mexico and above it is North America.

    From Colombia and down is South America.

    The rest of the countries in between belong to Central America.

    This is the reason why it is ignorance to say "I live in America" meaning that you live in the States, cause the United States belong to North America and not to the whole continent which is called America.

    Cause We Chileans can also say...I live in America, but only if we are talking to an Australian or Afrikan Person.

    It is neither. According to Mexico anyway, it is definitely NOT North America. When you enter Mexico from the south, there is a sign that says 'Welcome to North America.'

    Neither, Because it is called Central America it is its own thing. South America is its own thing so is North America. Central America is just by itself
