Florida is home to almost one million Caribbean Americans (excluding Puerto Ricans) and this number is constantly growing as more Caribbean Americans move here from the colder cities of the north, including New York and Toronto, Canada.
The Caribbean Sun newspaper has over the years built a reputation as an informative, entertaining and credible publication offering its readers creative and original editorial content covering issues and events in the various communities as well as back in the Caribbean region. It has lived up to its motto 'News You Can Use' especially through its dedicated columns on Immigration and Real Estate.
As a community newspaper we are very involved in many of the activities of the Caribbean American community and work closely with several community organizations, the private sector and government agencies in promoting and preserving the Caribbean culture while seeking to fully integrate the Caribbean American community into the wider American society.
Miami and Ft. Lauderdale have the 2nd and 3rd largest Caribbean population in the United States. There are over 465,000 Caribbean-Americans in the South Florida community, and an additional 250,000 in the Central Florida/ Tampa Bay community, primarily from Haiti, Jamaica, Guyana, Trinidad & Tobago and Bahamas.

Caribbean Americans are very religious people and are active in their churches, mandirs and mosques.
Quite often however, there is a lack of information about these religious organizations- their activities, the location of the various churches, mandirs and mosques, the names of the priests and the time and date of services and special events.
We often receive telephone calls and e-mail from members of the public requesting such information.
Caribbean Sun is read not only by Caribbean Americans, but by other segments of American society including elected officials, government and non-government organization officials. Our newspaper was recently among the few Caribbean newspapers in the US accredited to cover President Obama's participation in the Summit of the Americas in Trinidad and Tobago.
