    What is the coin and how do I use it?
    Like the doubloons handed out during the famous Mardi Gras festivities in New Orleans, Tropical Shipping is minting special coins designed with a famous landmark or logo of each island. The coins also include the web address of our site, www.freestaycaribbean.com, and a US toll-free (800) number for the island’s Ministry of Tourism office. These coins will represent specific values for extended stays and/or discounts at the properties featured on our website. The special offers to cruise passengers will also be available through the 800 number listed on the coin.
