Caribbean is a region of the Americas, formed by the Caribbean Sea, its islands and island states in the Caribbean Sea, also called the Antilles or West Indies, the name originated from the initial belief that the Americas were in fact India. Those born in the Caribbean Islands are called Caribbean or oxalés, original language of the native tribes of the Caribbean.
The Caribbean is located in the tectonic plate of the same name - Caribeana Board, which also includes the southern part of Central America. On the border of this plate with the South American Plate to the east by the Atlantic Ocean, there is a volcanically active subduction zone, which originated the Lesser Antilles.
