Where is the border north America to the south?
before central america
What two COUNTRIES border North and South America. Technically, Mexico is in Central America, so the answer to the question is: Mexico borders North America, and Panama borders South America. Some consider Mexico to be a part of North America, which is technically incorrect, but in that case, then there are three countries that border North and South America: Panama borders South America, and Belize and Guatemala border North America (Mexico).
North America ends at the southern border of Mexico with Guatemala and Belize; South America starts at the border of Panama with Colombia. Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama are considered Central America, although they can be considered as part of North America. When they are, the border between the continents is the Panama-Colombia border. Although the Panama Canal is technically the water link that divides the continents, it is entirely within Panama…
Although many think that North America ends at The United States' southern border, the continent continues throughout Mexico and the portion of North America known as Central America until it reaches South America. The counters of Central America are: Belize Costa Rica El Salvador Guatemala Honduras Nicaragua Panama Columbia is the next country and is in South America The border between North and South America is between Panama and Columbia.
North America and South America are considered the two main continents in the Western Hemisphere. At times countries south of Mexico and north of Colombia are said to be in "Central America" , however, this is a misconception. North America ends ( geographically) on the border of Colombia which is in South America.
