Steve Bennett

PR guy by trade, West Indian by birth, Steve has been helping journalists tell stories about the Caribbean for the past 20+ years. As co-founder, editorial director and principal voice of Uncommon Caribbean, Steve shares a personal and uniquely-informed view of the authentic side of Caribbean travel and culture every day. Steve’s travels have taken him to 39 Caribbean destinations (and counting), many of which he’s visited while leading media tours as the head of his travel-focused public relations agency, SBPR Corp. This depth of experience has taught him that the uncommon is not relegated to the region’s most far flung and little-known destinations.

Jungle Oiseau Rhum Agricole Cocktail Takes Tiki to the French Caribbean

Tiki culture doesn't jive with the real Caribbean to me. In the case of the Jungle Oiseau, though, the disparate tropic traditions come together nicely.
