Can you look through this information and learn about the Caribbean.
The Caribbean, which is located near North America, South America, and east of Central America, encompasses more than 700 islands and the Caribbean Sea. The Caribbean was named after the people who inhabited the islands before the European arrival – the Caribs. Once the Spanish arrived the population of the Caribs began to decrease. Today the islands in the Caribbean are owned by several countries including Britain (or the U.K), the United States, France, and the Netherlands.
