 The CAC Games are the oldest continuous-running regional games, dating back to 1926. Held every four years, the Games typically host competitors from countries in Central America, the Caribbean, Mexico, Bermuda and the South American countries of Surinam, Guyana, Colombia and Venezuela. The CAC Games are considered the starting point of international competition for athletes from the region who are seeking to represent their countries at the Olympic level. They are designed to provide a step between sub-CAC-region Games held in the first year following a Summer Olympics, and the Pan American Games, which are held the year before the Summer Olympics.

The following athletes comprise Team Bermuda for the XXIII CAC Games:
