The Caribbean is good. $20 here and there, a bit more in places.

More than a bit more - and the Bahamas are not the most expensive. The French islands are definitely inexpensive, but Grenada is ~$300/yr. If staying more than one month, the BVI's are also $300, as stated previously, plus the costs of moorings in most places. St. Martin is going to get up close to $300 in anchoring fees if staying more than a couple of weeks. Curacao is $300. Turks and Caicos are $400. Central and South America countries are around $300/yr, give or take $50 depending on country. Much of the rest of the Eastern Caribe is going to cost $100-$150 - such as Trinidad, St. Vincent/Grenadines, Dominican Republic, etc - and that isn't including port or mooring/anchoring fees.

Jamaica is free, as is US, USVI, and Puerto Rico, and the Caymans are nominal.

I don't have experience with countries outside those surrounding the Caribbean Sea.
