Chapter Summary

The importance of Mexico's islands has attracted attention from historical, diplomatic and scientific angles. Unfortunately, the significance that these islands are called upon to play in the economic and commercial development of that country, and in the future of that nation, has been seriously neglected. From a historical viewpoint, the modern history of this country may be traced back to two islands in the Caribbean - Cozumel and Isla Mujeres - and a few more in the Gulf of Mexico - Isla del Carmen, Sacrificios, Isla Verde and San Juan de Ulúa. This chapter describes and enlists a total of &t;more than 250 islands that Mexico possesses&t; classifying them into four categories and presenting them in alphabetical order, located in these basins: 1) Pacific Ocean; 2) Gulf of California; 3) Gulf of Mexico; and 4) the Antilles Sea.

Keywords: Mexico; Pacific Ocean
