There are 23 nations in North America. Please note that North America is composed of three subregions:

Northern America (which most confuse for North America alone), Central America (which some may confuse as a separate continent), and the Caribbean.

The 23 countries in North America are:

  • Antigua and Barbuda
  • Bahamas
  • Barbados
  • Belize
  • Canada
  • Costa Rica
  • Cuba
  • Dominica
  • Dominican Republic
  • El Salvador
  • Grenada
  • Guatemala
  • Haiti
  • Honduras
  • Jamaica
  • Mexico
  • Nicaragua
  • Panama
  • Saint Kitts and Nevis
  • Saint Lucia
  • Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
  • Trinidad and Tobago
  • United States

North America is not composed of only three nations, Canada, Mexico, and the United States, as some may believe. These three nations are located in the subregion of Northern America and do not form their own continent.
