Columbus sailed to south America and had thought he had landed on the west indies but instead he had landed on the Caribbean islands and so then the name stuck.

Technically, Christopher Columbus never actually reached North America, because he never came to the mainland. Columbus reached several of the Caribbean islands by ship.

No. He never got to the main land of North America. He only found islands in the Caribbean. He was not considered a success.

There are no official estimates but populations were sparse in the region at the time. Columbus only made 4 voyages and didn't actually see all of the Caribbean.

He traveled from Spain to the Caribbean islands, so that is his route. =)

Most of the Caribbean Islands had indigenous people who lived on each island well before Columbus ever arrived. Each people had their own name.
