Fast Facts

The Caribbean is a remarkable region within the Caribbean Sea southeast of the Gulf of Mexico and North America. The Bahamas, on the other hand, is a single country, an archipelago made up of more than 700 islands and 2,400 cays, or smaller islands, partially in the Caribbean Sea and partly in the Atlantic Ocean.

Amazingly, only about only 2 percent of the Caribbean islands are inhabited.

The region’s primary languages are Spanish, English, and Dutch. Papiamento, a mix of these languages, as well as Portuguese and French, is widely spoken on the Caribbean islands of Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao.

Scenes from every Pirates of the Caribbean movie, starring Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, and Keira Knightley, were filmed in the Caribbean.

Jamaica was the setting of the very first James Bond film, Dr. No. Writer Ian Fleming penned more than a dozen novels and short stories featuring Agent 007 while living in Jamaica.
