South Florida. Not a Caribbean Island but its proximity connects it to the Caribbean giving Miami the geographical title as the captital of the Caribbean.
And not to forget he amount of imports done to the Caribbean from or through South Florida, the many connecting flights to and from the Caribbean and the very similar climate, holiday spirit, beaches and variety of watersports.
Acording to CoolestCarib.com, if South Florida ever splits from the continent it would be the number one Caribbean Island.

Check out farmers markets on Caribbean islands for fresh local produce like mangoes, plantains, bananas, pineapples, coconuts, papayas, etc. Generally, food in the Caribbean is very expensive, because of import costs, in comparison to the U.S. or Europe. And you're supporting the local businesses!
