I'd say South Florida & Hawaii by far. I've even seen parts of Orlando that look very Caribbean/Bahama-ish.

If we're talking Cuba, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, eastern Caribbean etc. then I would say Miami and south Florida.

If we're talking Bahamas, Jamaica, Caymans, etc. then I would say New Orleans or Galveston.

The only thing giving Florida the edge is the number of caribbean immigrants.

Miami comes to mind right away especially Little Haiti area. It really feels and looks like the back streets of Downtown Nassau or Kingston and driving in it is like it too. Cars coming out of no where, people crossing the street every where, music from stores, food on the side of the street, street vendors, fruit vendors, and lets not forget about not hitting the chickens trying to get across the street, it really is great. Miami has the most Caribbean influence in it.
As for how a nice resort area would look like that would be Key West minus all the white people.

Key West, Marathon, Islamorada, Key Largo, Key Biscayne, "Olde Naples", the island communities around SW FL's Pine Island Sound.
