General and Geography


The Caribbean is a popular holiday region in the tropical west of the Atlantic. The area belongs to Central America and covers an area of about 137000 square miles in the so-called Caribbean Sea.

The Caribbean extends from the Mexican peninsula Yucatán in a triangle down to the islands Trinidad and Tobago off the coast of Venezuela in South America.

According to current estimates, about 42 million people live in the Caribbean Islands, of which about 70% use Spanish and about 25% use English as their main language. In addition to French and Dutch, numerous dialects and mixed languages of Creole and Caribbean are also represented.

The largest Caribbean islands are Cuba and Hispaniola, on which the two neighbouring states Haiti and the Dominican Republic are located. Followed by the Bahamas, Jamaica and Puerto Rico as well as the sister islands Trinidad and Tobago.

The Caribbean is usually divided into the following areas: Greater Antilles (including Cuba, Jamaica, Dominican Republic), Lesser Antilles (including Barbados, Martinique, St. Lucia, Curaçao), Open Atlantic (including Bahamas, Turks and Caicos) and the Western Caribbean (including Cozumel in Mexico).

Climate in the Caribbean


Due to the extent of the Caribbean, there are regional differences, especially with regard to wind conditions and the risk of hurricanes. Basically the climate of the Caribbean can be described as tropical to subtropical. There are therefore only small temperature fluctuations and no usual seasons.

For most Caribbean islands, the European winter and spring are considered the ideal travel season. We have broken down the individual climate tables and information on the best travel time for each individual island separately and in great detail.
