In the present day, the Caribbean nations are mostly poor but have a strong tourism industry due to their tropical climate and close proximity to the United States and Canada.

This is a list of the Caribbean countries that aren't part of UsefulNotes/LatinAmerica. Because of that, some countries like Cuba or the Dominican Republic are not here, while Guyana in South America and Belize in Central America are. What separates these countries from Latin America is the prominence of African culture among the populace, whereas Spanish culture dominates elsewhere. Just think of this list as a list of countries members of a "Caribbean Community" (a real organization, known as CARICOM, headquartered in Georgetown, Guyana).

'''Tropes:'''
* SexTourism: Specifically--and against stereotype and expectation--women seeking men. The locals call it "Rent-A-Rasta". Americans make jokes about ''Film/HowStellaGotHerGrooveBack''.
* VacationEpisode: After Hawaii, likely the most common place.

Now a bunch of poor, but mostly democratic, independent states and a vacation spot for North Americans.

''NOTE'': This is a list of the Caribbean countries that aren't part of UsefulNotes/LatinAmerica. Because of that, some countries like Cuba or Dominican Republic '''are not''' here, while some countries like Guyana or Belize '''are''' here. Confused yet? Just think of this list as a list of countries members of a "Caribbean Community" (a real organization, known as CARICOM, headquartered in Georgetown, the capital city of Guyana).
