About the Central American and Caribbean Games 

The Central American and Caribbean Games are a multi-sport event, held every 4 years since 1926, in different cities of countries within the region comprising Central America and the Caribbean Sea basin. It is the oldest regional multidisciplinary event in the world. The Central American and Caribbean Games are held by the organization Centro Caribe Sports.

The games were born thanks to the initiative of the Mexican Olympic Society, who after Mexico’s performance in the 1924 Paris Olympic Games decided to organize a multi-sport event among Central American countries, for the growth of the competitive level of the sports in the region. Cuba and Guatemala supported the project, and Mexicans Alfredo Cuéllar and Enrique Aguirre negotiated with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for international endorsement.
