Great news for Coco Island BUT it's so hard to take seriously something like this which puts everything south of Mexico as South America. I understand people's stupidity with geography but when it's a website about geography one would think they would get something so elementary as this right.

I had not noticed that the contest's organizers had categorized the continent in that awful way. Very dissapointing indeed!

In any case if our island gets picked it will undoubtedly benefit it and our economy so I will cast my vote for it.

However thanks for pointing this detail out.
