According to Caribbean 360, Barbados has been named the safest country in the Caribbean for visitors in a biennial report from the recent World Economic Forum. This placed the 430-square-kilometre island way ahead of six other Caribbean countries named in the world report. Placing 55th, Barbados beat its closest Caribbean competition by a wide margin, with the Dominican Republic placing 107th, Mexico in the 113th spot, Trinidad and Tobago ranked 115th and Jamaica 119th.

The least safe countries in the region were said to be crime-plagued Honduras in 128th place, and political hotspot Venezuela in 131st place.
