From a set of 12 postcards called:
Cruising the Caribbean (each card also has a recipe on the back)
inside the folder holding the card it reads:
Pristine beaches, tranquil shady palm trees, tropical warm breezes and a laid-back lifestyle make the islands of the Caribbean relaxing, enchanting, enticing, entertaining, and inviting. Thousands of visitors arrive to one or more of the many Caribbean islands each year to find their perfect sun-kissed vacation destination is the one they will never forget.
The Caribbean has it all!!
