Mexico is not in North America!!
November 14, 2012 at 3:49 PM

I was at a dinner party with a large group of people, and one of my husband's friends was saying that Mexico is not part of the continent of North America; that it's actually part of Central America.  His reasoning was that they are a different culture...and therefore doesn't belong with America and Canada.  Many people agreed with him, on the cultural and geographic aspects of his "opinion". 

I have to ask...do you personally believe that Mexico is part of North America?

confused

In your personal opinion, is Mexico part of North America...does it share a continent with the United States and Canada?

    I always considered it part of central America. It's part of that long tail that goes from the tip or Texas.

    I live in Mexico and yes, it's in NORTH America. Ever heard of NAFTA? The NORTH America Free Trade Agreement? It's an agreement signed by the U.S, Canada and Mexico.
    Central America begins in Guatemala and Belize and ends in Panama

    Were you born there or did you move there? Could you say what state you're in and how you like living there and stuff?

    If you were born there and are Mexican could  you tell me how welcoming Mexicans are of whites and those with broken Spanish?

    ...I was seriously considering moving there.

    Central America is a region not a continent so a country is either part of North America or South America with Panama being the dividing line. Continents can be very different. Look at Asia we've never decided that Pakistan and China are on different continents.

    Canada, America, and Central America make up the North American Continent.

    And any Mexican (including myself) will tell you, " HELL NO!". Central America is between Mexico and S. America.
