Miami by far. The climate, culture, and people.

New Orleans too with the cultural influences.

If you are thinking about the touristy areas of the Carribean, I'd say Key West, FL. If you are thinking about the non-touristy areas, I'd say Belle Glade, FL. Now, I've never been to Belle Glade, but I've seen pictures - and it looked a lot like what I've experienced in the Carribean.

Key West for sure. Miami has parts of the city that also feel a lot like some neighborhoods I have been to in the Caribbean. That's about it.

You have many different small South Florida towns that look like that. Pahokee and Immokalee are two others. This also should not come to as a surprise.

Miami does seem to be the major city with the most from the Caribbean. The Fort Lauderdale region seems to have a good deal from Jamaica and Trinidad, but that might be in the Miami metro area. Rincon, a suburb of Savannah in Georgia, looks to have something of a Bahamian population going by a source I'll refrain from naming.

Probably not really like the Caribbean in terms of climate or style, but Bloomfield, Connecticut I believe has a large population of middle-class Jamaicans. It's among the "safest" and most affluent majority African-American communities in the US. Although it's a suburb.

yeah, but the problem is that Key West is like 85% white. it reminds me of cape cod by the equator.
