Trinidad isn't in North America, its in South America the island is a CONTINENTAL ISLAND meaning its on the South American plate just like how Great Britain is a CONTINENTAL ISLAND off the coast of Eurasia.

In truth the Caribbean is neither in North or South America with the exception of Trinidad and some other islands because they are on a plate of its own.

Also North America stops around the Panama canal. Maps shows how South America didn't include those central American countries before their connection.

Not sure about the continental shelf, but there is no where that Trinidad and Tobago considered part of South America. It is considered part of North and there is very little we share with South America other than distance itself.

Geographically Trinidad (not Tobago) is in South America.

actually we share flora, fauna and species

but the continents are cateogorized into SEVEN continents, meaning Central America and the Caribbean are grouped into NORTH AMERICA

and Oceania is grouped into Austrailia

I consider this topic somewhat subjective, geology vs. geography vs. cultural geography....

to answer the question, still just one, seeing as Hawaii doesn't qualify as a different continent.
i need to travel more :search:
