Gulf of Mexico.

The Gulf of Mexico is an ocean basin, and a marginal sea of the Atlantic Ocean, mostly surrounded by the southeast corner of North America. It is bounded on the north and east by the United States; on the west and south by Mexico; and on the southeast by Cuba. The southern U.S. states of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida are sometimes referred to as the Gulf Coast states.
