Celebrating Caribbean-American heritage: These 10 sites showcase the Caribbean’s best, from rum to its vast culture

From time to time, an industry or subject inspires us to create a best-of list. In case you’ve missed some of these, you can find them here. These Caribbean news sites produce out-of-this-world coverage. If you think your site should be considered, give us a holler and tell us why.caribbean american heritage

For 13 years, June has been celebrated as National Caribbean-American Heritage Month.

There are so many awesome sites that showcase this incredible and fascinating community. Here are just 10 that we dug up.

1. Caribbean Castaways (formerly RumShopRyan: Caribbean Travel Blog)

This travel blog takes you through the best tourist destinations and secluded spots through the eyes of a rum lover/aficionado, RumShopRyan, and his “first mate,” Castaway Crystal. The duo explores various Caribbean islands and shares the tropical activities and vibrant cultures throughout the region, often with a focus on the local rum. From the breathtaking photographs to the refreshingly conversational review blogs, this site is perfect for someone looking to visit the Caribbean and see what it has to offer.
