Gulf of Mexico

Gulf of Mexico

As a marginal sea of the Atlantic and the northwestern part of the American Mediterranean Sea, the Gulf of Mexico is almost completely encased by North America. The eastern, northern and northwestern coast are part of the United States (in the states of Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas), the southwestern and southern coast are part of Mexico; in the southeast the Gulf borders on Cuba.
The Gulf is connected to the Atlantic Ocean through the Florida Straits between the U.S. and Cuba, and with the Carribbean Sea (with which it forms the American Mediterranean Sea) via the Yucatan Channel between Mexico and Cuba. The water temperature in the summer is around 85°F, in the winter between 70 and 80°F. That is because most parts of the Gulf are located in the Tropical Zone. The land at the Gulf Coast, including many long and narrow Barrier Islands, is almost continuously flat and comprises of marsh areas, swamps and sand beaches.

Famous coastal cities are Tampa, Saint Petersburg, Pensacola, Mobile, New Orleans, Beaumont and Houston (USA), Veracruz and Mérida (Mexico) and Havanna (Cuba).
