About Caribbean – Fast Facts

Caribbean is a region that encloses the bright azure Caribbean Sea with a fabulous chain of 7000 islands. This region is called West Indies because when Christopher Columbus came here in 1942 he thought that he had landed at the Indies (in Asia).

It is politically organized into 27 territories that include sovereign states, dependent territories of US or European Union and overseas departments. The population mainly consists of African ancestry, yet minorities from French Caribbean, Portuguese, French, English, Dutch and minorities of mixed race are also present. Its ecosystem mainly supports diverse fauna and flora, ranging from montane cloud forests to cactus scrublands.

Travellers can speak a wide range of languages such as English, French, Dutch or Spanish owing to the diversity of people from different regions. It is assured that during Caribbean holidays travellers can experience stunning coral reefs with tropical fish, enjoying golf beneath blue skies and sailboats over the azure sea waters and couples strolling on the beach at evening times.
