Location Description from Publisher

"From Caribbean Business (June 4, 2009): Caribbean Trading Co. expands souvenir shop Located on the corner of Principal Street and PR191 in Luquillo’s Palmer Ward, near the entrance to El Yunque rainforest, Caribbean Trading Co. (CTC) has consistently become a “must stop” for international and local tourists in search of authentic Puerto Rican souvenirs, “made in Puerto Rico, not from China,” said CTC owner Tim Collins, or "Capt. Tim," as he calls himself. “Our core business is working with corporate and incentive group programs held at the major resorts and hotels in the area, providing them with gifts and other services,” Collins explained, adding he chose to establish the Trading Co. near El Yunque, one of Puerto Rico’s most treasured assets and one of the biggest tourism attractions.” Collins also confirmed future expansion plans, including the opening of a restaurant and a small retail complex on the land adjacent to the existing CTC store “all aimed at contributing to both the development of our regional tourism as well as generating new economic activity.” Doubling CTC’s retail size has enabled Collins to become a one-stop shop for tourists, with an extensive merchandise mix that includes fine cigars from Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Jamaica, tastings of a variety of Puerto Rican coffees, a selection of hot sauces and locally made souvenirs, and arts & crafts.

"Great hidden treasure!"

, Bill McKinlay from , Madison, Wisconsin
User Comments: We were staying at the Wyndham Rio Mar and took a trip up to El Yunque and ran across Caribbean Trading Company. Wow, how cool was that. We had been recommended by the hotel another gift shop that was close by but this was by far a much nicer place. We bought all of our mementos from our trip here. Great unique quality stuff in a clean and organized store. I'm in retail so I can appreciate when a store is run like it should be. It was a real treat. I highly recommend it to anyone. Riselle is a great asset by the way. Thanks again!
