Bahamas are in the Atlantic. There's a really good map on Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Caribbean_general_map.png

So are San Andres and Providencia really part of Colombia? That seems pretty far away (although closer than Hawaii is to the USA I suppose).

Since you accidentally put Less Antilles in the instructions rather than Lesser Antilles, I assume you're talking about the Antilles of which there are fewer.

Like the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos Islands are not in the Caribbean as traditionally defined. The Caribbean is bordered by South America, Central America, Cuba, Hispaniola, Puerto Rico and the Lesser Antilles down to Trinidad.

Hi! Looking from northern Europe BAHAMAS is connected to the Carribean sea, and Wikipedia writes that way, too. Take a look, and have a great Day;)! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Countries_in_the_Caribbean

What does it matter where you are "looking from"? QM clearly defined the area considered to be the Carribean for the purpose of this quiz. The Bahamas clearly do not fit the criteria. Doesn't mean other definitions would exclude it.

Great quiz. Maybe allow 'cayman' and 'virgin' and variations on Eustatius like 'eustasias' 'eustasius' 'eustatias'

That's quite understandable because Mexico (and the gulf of Mexico) is not automatically though of as being part of the Caribbean. And since it is in this quiz, it opens a Pandora's Box, doesn't it? For, if you include Mexico, Guatemala, and Belize how can you exclude the gulf states of the US? (Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas and Florida?)

It''s called Caribbean Countries and Territories, and includes things that just border on the Caribbean Sea. Those aren't the same thing. I've never heard Mexico called a Caribbean country, and Guyana, Suriname and French Guyana are often included in cultural definitions, because of the close historical ties between them and the islands.

Thank You! - I am so sick and tired of countries/islands/entities being thrown where they don't belong because of hubris.
