Language : The language spoken in most Caribbean islands is English. (Outside Martinique and Guadeloupe)

Currency: The Caribbean dollar EC $ (Eastern Caribean Dollar) is the official currency. (1 € = 2.5EC $ approximately). Nevertheless the euro is accepted throughout the Caribbean and it is therefore not necessary to predict the exchange.
