This is a list of first-level country subdivisions within the Caribbean in order of total area. Those administrative divisions that are the largest within their respective countries are highlighted in bold. The list also contains first-level administrative divisions from countries such as Guyana, Suriname, Belize, and The Bahamas which are technically not a part of the Caribbean, but because of their cultural heritage are widely accepted.
