North America


The continent of North America is located in the northern and western hemispheres.  It spans from the deserts of Mexico in the south, to the icy lands of the Arctic Circle to the north. 


North America is bordered by the Arctic Sea to the north, the North Atlantic Ocean to the east, the Caribbean Sea to the southeast, and the North Pacific Ocean to the west.   


It is one of the most diverse continents on the planet, attracting visitors from all corners of the world. 


For updated and important travel advice we recommend a visit to the website of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, as part of their ‘Know Before You Go’ campaign.  North America Travel Advice.


Considering the high cost of healthcare in North America it is recommended that visitors take out comprehensive travel insurance


As well as cover for all the usual travel mishaps, check to make sure that your policy includes adequate cover for medical treatment, air ambulance and medical repatriation.
