Map of Middle America

Middle America is a region in the mid-latitudes of the Americas. In southern North America, it usually comprises Mexico, the nations of Central America, and the West Indies. The scope of the term may vary. Sometimes, Colombia and Venezuela are also included in Middle America; the West Indies are occasionally excluded from the region; and the Guianas are infrequently included.

Physiographically, Middle America marks the territorial transition between the rest of North America and South America, connecting yet separating the two. The region includes the areas known as the Caribbean, the Leeward Islands, the Windward Islands, the Greater Antilles and the Lesser Antilles and is bounded by the East Pacific and the North Atlantic Oceans. The better known Central America contains a small subset of these countries.
