hey luc.. i'm just wondering why trinidad and tobago also along with aruba are classed as sth america in the 'destinations' link?
i'm not really bothered as they are only a click away but i'd thought i'd ask because i reckon they are in the caribbean? is it they relationship with venezuela that keeps them there?

Hi Kris,

I was perplexed by your question as well. I have sent the inquiry off to the dev team to see if they can dig up an answer. I will let you know as soon as they get back to me.

Hi Kris,

I got an answer for you. This is what the tech dept said:

We don't have a region defined for the Caribean. If you look at the rectangular box that defines the S.American region, the last few caribeen islands trail off into it. So these islands have been included in S.America. The other caribean islands are part of N.America.

We do need to revisit our source of geographic information, but that is further off in the distance of the roadmap.

Hope that helps smile.gif
