Latin America Map
Physical map of Latin America. The term Latin America is used loosely to refer to all the American countries south of the United States: used this way, it covers the whole of South America, Central America, Mexico, and the Caribbean. It is used in a strict sense to refer solely to the nations in those geographical regions where the Spanish and Portuguese languages predominate; this narrower definition excludes the countries and territories where English and other languages are spoken (Jamaica, Belize, Guyana, Suriname, Haiti, etc).
