Pet Travel Question: A Caribbean Adventure

Name: Laurie
Number of Pets: 1
Pet Type: Dog
Pet Breed: Pit Bull Mix
From: USA
To: Caribbean

We're planning to move aboard a sailboat by the end of the year. We're planning on leaving from Florida and making our way down the Caribbean archipelago and then up the Central American coast settling in Panama or Guatemala.

We want to stop in as many countries as we can with our dog, but I know the rules on paper and in practice vary through the many countries. Can you help us navigate this trip?

Thank you in advance!

Hello Laurie,

It sounds like you have an exciting adventure ahead of you! It's best to examine each country's rules and requirements before you factor it into your plans for a stop, so take a look at the pet import guides on our website. We also ran across this blog about sailing with pets that may be helpful to you.

You'll probably still have a few questions, so please don't hesitate to contact us if you'd like to speak to a specialist directly about your options. Good luck with everything and we hope to hear from you soon!
