Best translation for " In the Caribbean"

Bonjour !

Prepositions are my downfall...

Is it better to say " Dans "  or  " Aux"  as in Dans les Caraibes or Aux Antilles ? Or are both equally acceptable ?

Merci

Hi Jean,

Both are accepted but personnaly I prefer -

aux Caraïbes 

as 

aux Antilles 

If you look at touristy websites in French you will find both.

Hope this helps!

I've always only heard dans les Caraibes.
