The Caribbean Sea is a sea of the Atlantic Ocean, separated from that ocean by the islands of the West Indies, including Cuba and Hispaniola, and having coastline along the northern portion of South America and the eastern portion of Central America. Located in the tropics, the sea is home to warmer waters than other portions of the Atlantic, but also falls in the path of many Atlantic hurricanes.
The region of the Caribbean Sea and its islands is frequently referred as the Caribbean. Home to the native Caribs, the region was discovered by Europeans in the late 1400s, and was primarily colonized by the Spanish, though piracy was common.
