    I've heard that Tobago is stunning but haven't been so don't know.
    It is, but there's very little substance to it. It's brilliant for a few days but I wouldn't go for, say, 2 weeks.

    Colombia.

    They have a fantastically low kidnap rate.

    Oh and the drug and gang violence that plagues so many other S American countries is totally unheard of in Colombia

    That's not what I was talking about. Although, the rate of such crime is also decreasing.

    I have a friend from Cayman, it's such a beautiful place and from what he says pretty safe etc. He's always swimming in the sea and larking around.

    Hello, me and my parents haven't had a family holiday in years and we're thinking of going to the carribean, can anyone suggest nice areas that fulfill many if not all of the following criteria?

    -safe swimming
    -not too busy
    -no sharks/jellyfish/crab people
    -decent law enforcement
    -bounteous beauty

    if you have had any nice experiences, please share we'd appreciate it a lot

    thanks
    There is no where really in the Carribean that ticks all of your needs...

    I would recommend the Bahamas, but recently it has became a lot more "Americanised" aha... also Bahamas is the shark feeding capital of the world, so if you really dont like sharks. I wouldn't go here...

    I've been to Barbados aswell, which has amazing beaches but not really much else to do?

    hope this helps slightly ?

    Negril in Jamaica, fits that description...its a tourist resort so it's safe, you wouldn't want to be going to somewhere like Kingston though. Cuba would also be good

    do you really think jamaica fits the OP's criteria? i'd say the north coast does, as in ocho rios but apart from that - no way. i've been all over jamaica many times (family live there) and a lot of it is very dangerous and not tourist friendly in the slighest. especially if you are white. OP do not go to kingston or spanish town or anywhere like that. if you do decide to go to jamaica, stick with ocho rios.
    huh? Jamaica is a very mixed country with White, Japanese, Chinese and Indian residents...so? I don't get it. Yes, Jamaica has crime, but I agree with the other post alot of the media just exagerrate crime in the Caribbean.

    Definitely not Dominican Republic, and parts of Jamaica. Probably i'd say Antigua/St Lucia or Barbados but then there's all the exclusive little islands such as St Barts and Neccar Island

    really? i've been to jamaica countless times and i've never seen a chinese person or an indian (apart from in the tourist resorts). and no, the crime figures accurately represent the level of crime in countries and last time i checked, jamaica was 4th in the homocide rankings which is scary considering a) the size of the country and b) how many other violent places there are in the world.


    edit: just looked it up and found this:
    "The Jamaican population is primarily of African descent (90.9 percent), with mixed race people making up 7.3 percent of the population, East Indians making up 1.3 percent, and several other ethnic groups rounding out the total."

    They exist! Have you been to local shops? Many are run by Indians, such as in Montego Bay. My family are part Chinese so yep, they are there too.

    The Caribbean is lovely, but I wouldn't think there is much to do there apart from lovely beaches but then I've only been with family.

    Jolly Beach? Too commercialised. Go some where where you can mix with the locals.

    West Indian people are fabulous. They are so friendly, really welcoming and have such a sense of fun. Best people on earth!
