The 6 Safest Countries in the Caribbean 2023

Anguilla crime rates are the lowest in the Caribbean with very few violent and petty crimes to mar its reputation as a tropical oasis. Tourists can feel safe and at ease in tranquil Anguilla!

Drug-related crimes are moderate in Anguilla, but these problems don't often affect tourists on vacation.

Barbados is another gorgeous Caribbean country with minimal crime. It's been seeing further decreases in its already-low crime rates year after year since 2018.

Drug-related crimes and human trafficking are the biggest concerns here but are easily avoided by tourists taking normal safety precautions.

St. Barthélemy is also one of the safest countries in the Caribbean in 2023 with crime rates estimating that fewer than 1000 violent crimes occur here annually.

Property and theft crimes are more common in St. Bart's, so travelers should keep an eye on their belongings and stay alert when walking through public areas.

Martinique has very little crime overall. Petty crimes (ATM theft and pick-pocketing) are more common here than violent crimes.

The Cayman Islands, including Grand Cayman, Little Cayman, and Cayman Brac, enjoy low levels of crime and high safety levels.

It's worth noting that while it's safe overall, crime rates in the Caymans have been on the rise in recent years, especially around Fort-de-France.

Aruba is known for its safety and low crime rates, making travelers feel safer and less worried about visiting than in high-crime islands.

Still, moderate increases in crime rates (mostly petty crimes) in recent years should be noted.

Planning a vacation to the Caribbean means taking the same safety precautions you'd take anywhere else -- stay alert, keep your phone charged, and don't walk alone in the dark. Pick one of the safest countries in the Caribbean to feel even more at ease about your trip!
