The Bahamas feature more than 2,000 islands and cays, many of which are uninhabited. They are scattered in a rough arc over a large corner of the Atlantic Ocean, from 50 miles off the coast of Florida in the northwest to 60 miles north of Haiti at the south-easternmost point. If you’re travelling from island to island the main way to get around is by boat, which is the cheapest, most frequent and most flexible mode of transport. The simplest way to divide the Bahamas is to break it down into 16 islands and archipelagos, each with something special to offer, whether you want colourful resort life or seclusion and serenity.

Canada is divided into 13 provinces and territories, with the three territories comprising its northernmost half. British Columbia and Alberta are often referred to as “the West”; Saskatchewan and Manitoba are called “the Prairies”; New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland are sometimes called “the Maritimes” or “the Atlantic Provinces”; while Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut are collectively called “the North Territories”.
Mexico consists of 32 federal entities. The 31 states have their own constitution and congress, while the federal district of Mexico City has less autonomy, with a local congress and government. The states are free to govern themselves, provided they do not contradict Mexico’s national constitution. Several of the states have existed in largely the same form since the Treaty of Córdoba confirmed Mexico’s independence in 1821. The last to gain admission to the federation were Quintana Roo and Baja California Sur in 1974.
