Uncommon Caribbean Photobook

Uncommon Caribbean is Steve and Patrick Bennett, two brothers from St. Croix changing the way people think about travel to the Caribbean by putting authentic aspects of island life and the region's unique cultural heritage in the spotlight ahead of the glitzy, one-size fits all tourist trap image popularized over the years.

    This gate looks good… Too bad it’s not mine. (at Lynden Pindling International Airport)

    Can’t get to the Caribbean fast enough! #hyperlapse

    It all started in 1952 with the original restaurant Chico’s on King Street in Frederiksted. In 1962 Villa Morales opened at it’s current location off of Centerline Rd, Frederiksted. Today this is exactly what I want for lunch!

    In this week’s Behind the Scenes video get a glimpse of me (Patrick) and LTD Sailing exploring a very special park in the waters off Grenada. For a limited time, you can get $150.00 off their already low off-season rates for a December 7-13 OR December 14-20 course! Learning to sail in the Grenadines in December… what a great early Christmas present! Details: http://bit.ly/1ohQOQn

    Live lunchtime entertainment is just one of the many reasons to venture west of Las Terrenas down a pothole riddled dirt road to pay Chez Luis a visit. There’s also the fresh fish, luscious lobsters, magnificent mamajuana, and front row seats on a beach that goes on forever. No need to wait 30 minutes before you take a dip! ¡Salud!

    Some of the most powerful Caribbean moments involve rain. No the West Indies are not a magical region that never sees precipitation, but that’s no reason to stay away during these months when we see tropical waves moving through the islands. Adjust your perspective. Look to the sky. And you might find another reason to love the Caribbean.

    Found up a 255 step staircase, atop this 195 foot tall volcanic plug of basalt cliffside you’ll find the picturesque, elevated canon battery of Fort Duvernette. Known locally as ‘Rock Fort’,  its main use was for the defence of Calliaqua in southern St. Vincent during the tumultuous years of Caribbean conquest. Imagine having to take these steps up to work everyday… Now imagine your daily clime BEFORE they installed a handrail.
