Shying Away from Local Cuisine
Common Mistakes in Caribbean Travel

My 12 year old daughter was not accustomed to seeing fish served with the head still attached. The face she's making betrays some serious reservations about taking a single bite.

I'm happy to report that within just a few seconds, she took that first bite and thoroughly enjoyed the meal.

Many adults have similar reactions when asked to try the local food of Caribbean islands. Some would rather pay huge prices to eat food in fancy restaurants that isn't much different from what they could find at home.

Resist the temptation to seek familiar foods in the Caribbean. Try some local specialties. Not only are you likely to enjoy them, but you're also apt to save money on food costs.
