The area that was once full of pirates, slaves, busty women, busty women pirates and women slaves who may or may not have been busty.

In the present day, the Caribbean nations are mostly poornote  but have a strong tourism industry due to their tropical climate and close proximity to the United States and Canada.

This is a list of the Caribbean countries that aren't part of Latin America. Because of that, some countries that are geographically part of the Caribbean like Cuba or the Dominican Republic are not here, while Bermuda in Northern America, Guyana and Suriname in South America and Belize in Central America are. What separates these countries from Latin America is the prominence of West African and Anglo-Indiannote  culture among the populace, whereas Latin/Romance culture dominates elsewhere. Just think of this list as a list of countries members of a "Caribbean Community" (a real organization, known as CARICOM, headquartered in Georgetown, Guyana).
