I want to technically visit as many countries as possible in

Resolved Question:

I want to technically visit as many countries as possible in a trip on a "jet ski" traveling in a "sensable route" from Venezuela to Florida. How many potential "countries" would one technically visit? And please list the name. Thankyou

Technically, including Venezuela and the United States, you could visit quite a few countries. It really depends on which way you want to go.

When leaving Venezuela, if you head east, you can hit Guinea, Suriname, French Guiana, and Brazil before heading north. There are dozens of little islands in the Caribbean (the Lesser Antilles) that are owned by all different countries. You'd easily be able to visit Trinidad and Tobago, Grenada, St. Vincent, Martinique (owned by France), St. Kitts, Dominica, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and Antigua and Barbuda, before heading back west to Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Cuba, and the Bahamas. Most of those islands aren't actually countries, though.

Otherwise, when leaving Venezuela, you can go west and head up the coast of Central America, which takes you through Columbia, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Belize, and Mexico. You could then technically head over to Cuba, and maybe take a detour down to Jamaica or over to Haiti and the Dominican Republic. North from Cuba, you can swing by the Bahamas before landing in Florida.
