It'll be interesting for you to put your love of domestic beers to the test down there...I live in Dallas and drink a wide assortment of beers, but probably choose Bud Light most often.

But for some reason, when I'm down in the Caribbean, Bud Light doesn't taste the same to me and I usually opt for Red Stripe or Presidente. Conversely, even though those beers can be purchased in Dallas, they don't taste as good to me when consumed here.

Probably an environmental thing or perhaps I've been conditioned by commercials to want a Caribbean beer in the Caribbean, but I actually do notice a difference.

I tend to stick with the local rum & juices' and the ingenuity of the bartender at whichever bar we're at.

I LOVE BEER, and enjoy my ice cold Miller Lite on island, but a "must have" to enjoy are the local rum concoctions.

Tried to replicate some of them at home, and they're perty good, but they don't ever taste the same...

Have a picnic, and remember,always , the not so secret ingredient-
