For topless and c/o bathing, you would be most comfortable on the French islands. The English, American, Dutch-influenced islands do frown upon it. Although it is "illegal," it is frequently done if done discretely on those islands.

Karen is absolutely right as to the general rule. For specifics - try Orient Beach on French Sint Martin or Negril in Jamaica [nowhere else in Jamaica, just Negril]. Martinique is a possibility but most I have talked to don't care for Martinique - they aren't as friendly as Sint Martin. Specific resorts may have specific reserved areas for this [such as the upper deck at the spa at LeSport in St Lucia] on islands that otherwise don't allow [or condone it].

Contrary to Karen saying Dutch islands don't allow topless, we have found topless at every Dutch island we have visited. Aruba had it, Bonaire had tons of it and in Curacao they only asked that you wear your top by the pool. You could pretty much do as you liked on the beach. There were even some totally nude there. The only objections to it I have noted is on the British Islands.

The times we were in Cancun there was always a lot of topless too, but my daughter went last year and said they are trying to stop it.

The times we were in Cancun, the Federales (5 abreast) were walking down the beach with guns, stopping any topless women they saw and standing there while they put their tops back on.
