This trope excludes the Latin Caribbean islands such as Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Haiti and Puerto Rico, and includes the northern South American countries of Guyana and Suriname and the Central American country of Belize. Jamaica is a specialized case, mostly due to a perceived abundance of Reggae and Rastafari folks [[EruditeStoner with a penchant for the "Wisdom Weed"]]. The Bahamas is often mistaken for Jamaica much to the chagrin of BOTH countries' citizens. This is despite, however, a minority of Rastafarians in Jamaica.

* The trolls of ''WorldOfWarcraft'' seem to blend both this trope and Mayincatec. The Darkspear have Jamaican accents and practice a fantasy equivalent of voodoo, while other tribes practice blood sorcery similar to human sacrifice and convene around ziggurats.

* ''Seres/DeathInParadise'' is set on the fictional Caribbean island of Saint Marie, described in Episode 3.3 as a "pretty island" that is "situated in the Eastern Caribbean Sea" and "one-tenth the size of its north-west neighbour Guadeloupe"; this would make Saint Marie about 63 square miles (160 km2) in size. Saint Marie is a British Overseas Territory, but about 30% of its people are of French culture due to previous history, with the language still widely spoken.
