The Caribbean is a region that consist of the Caribbean Sea, its islands (some surrounded by the Caribbean Sea and some bordering both the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean), and the surrounding coasts. The region is southeast of the Gulf of Mexico and the North American mainland, east of Central America, and north of South America.
Situated largely on the Caribbean Plate, the region comprises more than 700 islands, islets, reefs, and cays. The Caribbean island, consisting of the Greater Antilles on the north and the Lesser Antilles on the south and east, are part of the somewhat larger West Indies grouping.

Countries where it occasionally snows, in the Caribbean, are: Dominican Republic, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, and Cuba.

  2. Yes. We have links to universities in US & CANADA. We are currently working on the links to universities in Australia. We cannot tell you that we are there while we are not there yet. However, it might interest you to know that we already have links to some of the universities but we are yet to finalize other issues as regards visa for our students. Once we have reached that agreement with the necessary authorities and have made a breakthrough on this, we would then include Australia in our list of countries. Meanwhile you can click on our "university page" to see the list of countries where we have our partnering universities. Best Regards.
