* ''{{ComicBook/Foxtrot}}'': Roger, BumblingDad extraordinaire, once took his family to the Caribbeany resort- a place where you can drive or fly, as it's located a thousand miles from the nearest ocean. Other highlights include the steel drum concert being a guy with a synthesizer ("Oops. Didn't mean to hit "bagpipes" just then.") and a romantic sunset that's interrupted with a giant "Swipe Credit Card To Continue" message every five minutes.

* Dee Jay from the ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' series embodies the laid-back Jamaican stereotype, being a FunPersonified character who is also a DanceBattler. His stage in ''Super Street Fighter II'' is in a beachside restaurant, with a band and dancers, and the BGM ([[LeftTheBackgroundMusicOn probably performed by the band]]) has a distinct calypso feel.

* Parts of the album ''Waiting For Cousteau'' by JeanMichelJarre which was recorded on the island of Trinidad include a big local steel drum band. "Calypso" even comes with a somehow Caribbean groove.
* GreatBigSea sang "Penelope," about a Jamaican bazaar worker who moves to Chicago to become a domestic and to search for her lost uncle. She goes back, secure in the knowledge that the slow-paced life in the tropics is far better than the frantic concrete mess that is The Big City. [[EpilepticTrees Can be seen as an analogy for Newfoundlanders moving to big-city Canada and longing for home]].

* The movie ''Film/CaptainRon'', at one point, has the protagonist's children partying in a festival on an unnamed Caribbean island while their parents are arrested for smuggling revolutionaries onto the island. Later, they run afoul of the "Pirates of the Caribbean", as Captain Ron calls them, and get their boat stolen at gunpoint. (This movie was made before the Disney movie trilogy, so viewers will awkwardly hear the children's dad saying Captain Ron "went to Disneyland too many times").
** Pirates of the Caribbean existed before the movie trilogy, as a ride in Disneyland. Just to clarify.
** The movie was filmed in Puerto Rico.
