Registration help needed pls...

My wife and I are buying our first sailboat out of Annapolis. We will be bringing her down to the Caribbean right away. We cannot get her coast guard documented because we're legal us residents but not citizens yet.
I understand that a state registration is not enough to cruise in some of the islands (French, BVI ?)
Would a Puerto Rico or USVI registration allow us to cruise in foreign islands ?
What would the tax(es) implications be ?
I can't seem to find relevant info anywhere, any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
