Re-building-Here or there

We're planning on adding or rebuilding the cabinets and storage on our FIRST42 and trying to find good quality wood, as teak, or black walnut. If I can find it, the price is to high.
But we're heading to Central America and wondering if anyone has any experance with whats avalable down there, I would think the price would be quite less.

It is no longer cheaper down island in the Eastern Caribe. Can't speak to the situation in the Western Caribe but likely is cheaper.

I lived in Panama 1998-2001. At that time there were only 2 real marinas in the whole country. As far as teak wood they grow it everywhere but it was not easly to find to buy. Most wood in central America is cut into boards with chain saws so it is rough and not of a quality to use for fine work. It is also green. They don't understand how to dry wood. It rains to much to dry without keeping it under cover and takes a long time.
