Have a friend that grew up there. he managed to get the local cuisine basics to where I live. Island peppers, conch as well as some other hard to get in the US items. I am not sure how he got them in through customs. I was just happy to eat the fare. He is a chef and made a simply wicked ceviche among other things.
I love to go camping. When I was younger I did it a lot to save money. Nowadays it is about the same as a hotel in resort areas. Pick the right time of year to minimize seasonal bothers and it can't be beat.
