The Caribbean region is one “shopper’s paradise” that lives up to its name. Shopping on the islands means taking advantage of countless opportunities to find luxury items available at tax-free and duty-free prices—up to 50 percent less than retail prices in the United States. Vast selections in nearly every destination include opulent designer jewelry, coveted name-brand watches, exquisite diamonds, and rare, exotic gemstones, some of which are virtually impossible to find back home. You’ll also see reduced prices on electronics, liquor, cosmetics, fragrances, china, crystal, linens, leather goods, candy, and chocolates. And the list goes on. next
