The term LAC covers an extensive region, extending from Bahamas to Chile and Argentina, the region consists over 670.230.000 people as for 2016, and spanned for 21.951.000 km2 (8.475.000 sq mi).

While the term of the region is widely accepted, it is still in question that could some non-Latin speaking countries are included or not. Nevertheless, the term doesn't share any close idea about speaking zone.
