North America is a continent of nearly 10 million square miles that extends as far north as the Arctic Ocean,  east to the Atlantic Ocean,  west to the Pacific Ocean, and  southeast to the Caribbean Sea. Thus this map includes Canada and the USA of course.

But also  all of Central America which means Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and Panama. And all the Caribbean islands of which there are dozens including the old favourites of Cayman islands, US Virgin Islands, British Virgin Islands, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Cuba, Haiti, Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Tobago and so on...

 It’s a large area and in fact this is the third largest continent in the world after Asia and Africa, with a population of over half a billion.
