While you might think of Jamaican food and instantly think “jerk,” don’t stop just there. The island also has an awesome coffee culture. You’ll want to head inland to explore the mountainous coffee plantations, where history and heritage combine for a delicious brew.
Trinidad and Tobago boasts a rich culinary history, where you’ll uncover loads of local specialties you can’t find elsewhere, from curried crab and dumplings to macaroni pie.
