Captain Tim’s Annual Blog Review – The Wisdom of 2013

caribbean blog

It has been a busy year here at Caribbean Trading Company and 2013 marked the year where we tried to focus more on our blog and quality content, sharing all the pearls of wisdom and insights we have on the Caribbean. Located in Puerto Rico, we tried to bring an authentic perspective to our Caribbean postings and share with the world a bit about the Caribbean lifestyle and to respond to all of the questions that we received from visitors to the islands.  Of course, as natives of Puerto Rico, many of our postings reflected the culture and happenings in Puerto Rico.  Here is a listing of all of the blogs that 2013 brought…. We hope to bring you even more interesting topics in the coming new year!
