Caribbean Telephone Area Codes

Islands of the Caribbean and Western Atlantic

A compendium of all the telephone area codes of the Caribbean and nearby Atlantic countries, as well as the various applicable service codes. Some islands use NANPA (North American Numbering Plan Administration), the same system used in the United States and Canada. You dial using the (xxx) xxx-xxxx format i.e (242) 555-1212 would be a number in the Bahamas. Other islands have their own country code designation and you dial 011 , then the two or three digit country code, then the local phone number, which often includes a city code. An example for Aruba would be 011 297 586 2283.

Recent Changes to be Aware of: area codes 829 and 849 have been put into use in the Dominican Republic. The Netherlands Antillies island of Sint Maarten will be changing to NANPA area code 721 from its current international code 599 effective 9/3/2011.
