Talking Tell me if this is a good holiday destination

I've been wanting to go to the Caribbean especially Cuba. But someone told me it's dangerous there like crimes etc.. Is it true?

Has anyone been there? Suggestions?

What other islands are good places to visit in the Caribbean?

Any and all suggestions are welcome

Cuba is fine, though I'd rather be other places. I liked St. Barts, though it is a bit expensive. The Bahamas are great! I really enjoy Grand Cayman Island! And The Virgin Islands are to die for!

i suggest going to Puerto Rico. I have been there over 3 times (that I can remember) and I loved it each and every time. You can get around with English and you don't have to go through US Customs if you live in the US. The resorts there (Conquistador, El San Juan) are very nice.

I suggest these above all but Atlantis Paraise Island (can be Pricey)

Cuba is the safest place on earth (not like some US cities) If you are really from Tenochtitlán (México city). Maybe you could be dangerous for the peaceful island

Barrie dude I don't think I can afford the virgin islands and lemonice too with Grand Cayman But I'll see.

ASV puerto rico does sound nice. Canek no I'm not from Mexico

Thanks all for the suggestions and reassuring Cuba is safe

Hopefully my trip happens wherever it may be

Trinidad of course !

or it's little sister island Tobago especially if you like beaches. Tobago has some of the finest beaches in the world and I'm going there in December for 3 or 4 weeks
