Welcome to the New CaribbeanTrading.com Blog!

Let me tell you a story. It’s about a normal everyday guy who decided to do what so many people only dream about. I moved to the Caribbean. Now that I live and work here, and travel throughout the islands, I have the joy of sharing this lifestyle and its flavors with you.

If you had to choose between islands where you’d want to live, it wouldn’t be easy. I decided to hang my captain’s hat in Puerto Rico. It’s enchanting – beautiful, geographically diverse, rich with history, culture, and the warmth and friendliness of the Puerto Rican people.

I founded Caribbean Trading Company and recruited a great crew that brings you the best specialty products from the Caribbean and beyond.

Being based in a U.S. territory means that we can ship your treasures to you via the U.S. mail, UPS, DHL, or FedEx. Shop with us and get a bit of the islands sent to you.
And when you come to Puerto Rico, visit our company store in Palmer right at the base of the Caribbean National Forest, El Yunque, located in the rugged Sierra de Luquillo, 40 km southeast of San Juan (latitude 18º 19’ N, longitude 65º 45’W). Or perhaps it may be easier sailing to our store on Palomino Island, the private Island of the Waldorf Astoria Collection El Conquistador resort. (latitude 18º 45’ N, longitude 65º 83’W)
