As I was watching the sea going into the night, and the colors change, I searched up some interesting facts about the Caribbean Sea:
🌊The Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System, or Great Mayan Reef, is the world’s second largest reef.
🌊Due to its tropical climate, the Caribbean Sea houses nearly 13,000 species of plants. Approximately 6,500 of them are endemic, meaning you can’t find them anywhere else in the world.
🌊There are at least 1,000 documented species of animals in this body of water, including 90 species of mammals.
🌊The Caribbean Sea is the deepest sea in the world, with average depths of 22, 788 ft (6,946 meters).
🌊Yes, there were thousands of pirates pillaging the Caribbean Sea from the 1500s to the 1830s.
🌊Beaches on the Caribbean Sea are some of the world’s best.
