Montserrat!

The New York Post Between the rampant Guinness chugging, green-hill-rinse-repeat topography and a St. Patrick's Day that's been deputized a federal holiday, you can barely tell the difference between Montserrat and Ireland, where its first Catholic settlers hailed from. Er, except it's sunny, the people are tan and there's an active volcano.
The only hiccup is accessing this leprechaun-sized Leeward island of just over 5,000 people. While there are no direct flights from the US, and probably never will be, you can get to Montserrat in a couple of different ways from Antigua, which American nonstops it to out of Miami.

Advocate|Call for LIAT support

Advocate : "According to Gonsalves, the issue of the increased cost of air travel and the fashioning of a sound air transport policy, are matters on which the regions people expect satisfactory answers and effective resolution. It cannot be right nor reasonable to expect the tax payers of Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados and St. Vincent and the Grenadines, to continue to subsidise the regional air travel of other member states, he stated. It is in my view an act of irresponsibility, for any government to stand askance from regional solutions to the practical issues of intra-regional air travel. More over, it is entirely contrary to the letter and spirit of the regional integration movement, for some governments to act subversively of the enterprise known as LIAT. "
