The Wider Caribbean Region (WCR) comprises the marine environment of the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean Sea and the 200-mile zone of the Atlantic Ocean adjacent to the countries in the region. The Caribbean Sea Large Marine Ecosystem is a sub-oceanic basin of the WCR, bounded to the south by South America and Panama, to the west by Central America and the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico and partially enclosed to the north and east by the Islands of the West Indies. The sub-region of the Caribbean Sea covered by this project - the Mesoamerican Caribbean Basin (MCB) -- is the specific region of the southwestern Caribbean Sea bordered by four countries, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, and Colombia.
