Within the structure of the earth's crust composed of tectonic plates, the Caribbean plate is one of the smallest with an area of 2485484.8 Mile² and dimensions approximately from East to West, 1864.1 Miles and from North to South, 1056.3 Miles. It has an approximately rectangular shape and extends from east to west from Central America to the Antilles and from north to south from Cuba to northern South America. The limits of the plates are characterized by a high incidence of earthquakes and processes of volcanism in the east and west extremes. The Tectonic Plate of the Caribbean is currently moving eastward with respect to the plates of North and South America.
