#1949 The Caribbean is much more than beaches and resorts. It’s also a wonderful shopping destination. Approaching the Caribbean islands, Bermuda, and the Bahamas by land, sea, and air, two seasoned travelers outline the secrets to finding quality products at reasonable prices. They examine the major islands offering excellent shopping; the best buys on each island; shopping strategies appropriate for each island and culture; and specific shops offering quality products.
Special features include tips on pre-trip planning and preparation, bargaining and discounts, shopping from cruise ships, sightseeing and tours, best accommodations, and outstanding restaurants. Includes the islands of Aruba, The Bahamas, Bermuda, Barbados, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica, Martinique, Puerto Rico, St. Lucia, St. Martin/Sint Maarten, and St. Thomas. A unique treatment of the Caribbean largely absent in other travel guides. Another volume in our highly acclaimed Impact Guides series. 371 pages. 1996. $16.95.
