Puerto Rico tops list of 25 best Caribbean islands list

Posted by Juan Gavasa on December 13, 2014

The selection of destinations took into account the island's accessibility from New York, the average cost of hotel rooms, the number of attractions and something called the beach density index, a ratio of the length of the coast to total area.

Puerto Rico was selected as the best island because it is only 2 hours and 40 minutes from New York by air and the average cost of a hotel room is $187, according to Business Insider.

The Bahamas, St. Barts, St. Martin and Curaçao also made the list's top five, while Grenada, Turks and Caicos, Dominica, Guadeloupe and Haiti filled the last five slots.

The study also evaluated the Dominican Republic, the Cayman Islands, St. Kitts and Nevis, Jamaica, the British Virgin Islands, Barbados, Montserrat, Cuba, Martinique, Aruba, Trinidad and Tobago, the U.S. Virgin Islands, St. Lucia, Antigua and Anguilla.
