Sorry Brian I was thinking Belize but after reading the wiki on it, maybe not.  But....

The title and first line of the song refer to an island called San Pedro, held by some to be Ambergris Caye in Belize, referencing the town of San Pedro, which has since adopted the song's title as the town's principal nickname.[10] However, Gaitsch has mentioned that at that time, Madonna was spending time in a U.S. town of the same name, and both Madonna and her then husband Sean Penn were good friends with a poet called San Pedro and novelist Charles Bukowski.[11] Madonna herself has not clarified this in any interview. Instead, she referred the song as being a tribute to Latin America and its people, along with an island and to herself.[12]

As mentioned in La Isla Bonita Wikipedia page

Re: Placename Songs (Around the World)

More good additions, Mike, and we'll take 'Carolina Moon' as a sweep of the Carolinas (NC & SC). Adelaide is the capital of South Australia and as you provided the backstory on 'La Isla Bonita', we can include Belize too. I think it will be ok to do this as long as the supportive backstory is told, even so the placename doesn't appear explicitly.

Placenames travelled in song at page 4 so far. Here is the tally in summary:



International: Austria, Australia, Afghanistan, Argentina, Belgium, Belize, Brazil, Canada, China, Cuba, Egypt, Germany, Japan, India, Iraq, Italy, Morocco, Nepal, Netherlands, Portugal, Pakistan, Russia, Spain, Thailand, Turkey, USA and UK 
(Note: India & Pakistan are only noted with reference to Kashmir so far)



USA Ways: CA, CO, DC, GA, KS, IA, IN, IL, LA, MA, MI, MN, MS, NC, SC, NY, OH, PA, TN, TX.
