Bolivia, despite not having any coastline with the Atlantic or Pacific oceans, still has a navy to keep national hope alive of one day regaining what was lost to Chile in the late 1800s.

There's also the Mongolian Navy... but this isn't a quiz pertaining to the Khans or Mongolia, so i'll just leave it at that.

Ugh, guess I'm still asleep - must remember that landlocked countries don't border the Atlantic...

Yeah, took me like 30 seconds to realize that countries with no coastline at all probably also don't have any Atlantic coastline . . .

I actually had it the other way around. I was thinking landlocked countries, but there are only two. So it got me thinking, what is the rest of them :D

Chile does not have an Atlantic coast line yet its not on the answers, so its six countries, not five.

I think the very bottom of Chile touches the Atlantic due to where the border is

If you look closely at a map, the part where Chile comes closest to the Atlantic is cut off by a very thin strip of Argentina. But it does have islands that are technically Atlantic. You can also debate on whether the Strait of Magellan belongs to the Pacific or Atlantic.

You don't have to debate anything. You take a good look on the map closely again. Just south of the Argentinian town of Rio Gallegos, there is a part of Chile that clearly goes all the way to the Atlantic coast. Or do you mean that part on the very tip of that peninsula? It would be just riddiculous to not count the bay as a part of the Atlantic. I would even say that Punta Arenas lie on the Atlantic, but even if you wanted to move the divide as east as possible, surely it would go to the spot where road 257-CH crosses the water and not further.

Chile is not officially an Atlantic country but it has at least three islands (Picton, Lennox and Nueva) that touches the Atlantic Sea but the "line" touchjing the Atlantic Ocean belongs to Argentina (since the treatise signed buy those countries in 1984, I guess)

Don't agree with you. South of Argentinian Village of Estancia Monte Dinero there is a thin stripe of land which touches strictly Atlantic Ocean. So not only islands creates Chilean Atlantic Coastline as you said.

Using "American" as pertaining to anything else but the United States is dangerous territory on jetpunk. I mean, it's obviously correct, but I'm surprised that nobody has complained yet!
