Show us your Caribbean cards/collection

I live in the middle of the Caribbean. When friends go on cruises, or when my father and brother used to work on different islands once a month they sent me cards. I know I have more, but these are a few of my collection.

P.S Obviously I’m not including cards from my country. I have a card from Venezuela and Cuba which I should include here.

I would love to see the variety of cards from the Caribbean. Was it a swap or a match?
Have you visited the caribbean yourself? Which is your favorite island?







These were all sent cards, but I also have unsent cards for example from Aruba.

If you want, I can send you one. I love your collection but my country is missing. PM your address.

Since I started Postcrossing and direct swaps in 2006, have collected postcards written stamped from all the places in the Caribbean including the Guantanamo Bay.

You can view the rest from my postcard blog…

Wishing everyone Season Greetings, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Cheers, SL Liew :santa:

I think the east coast of Mexico is considered caribbeanbut Oaxaca is in the center of the country.

Is the card from PR handmade? I’ve never seen this design!

That’s the famous MOTW series
