The term “Pirate Islands” refers to the Caribbean in general, although not every island in the Caribbean is home to pirates. In reality, the Caribbean Sea is a dangerous sea, not only because t is frequented by pirates taking advantage of the shipping bottleneck of the Panama Divide, but also because of the area’s often violent weather. In truth, more vessels and cargo are lost to weather and dangerous seas than to pirates.
After being decimated in the 21st century by illness and declining economic stability, the population of the Caribbean islands is now in the millions, and the islands are again attractive vacation destinations. Since then, the islands of the Caribbean have continued to be home to anyone and everyone from average, honest men and women to viciously dangerous pirates of every description (4.2.4).
