You may want to try Trinidad -
here is the link for marinas in Trinidad
Samson Boatyard in San Fernando is mentioned under a amateur builder who wanted a low cost project:
Here is the link to the caribbean yellow pages showing Samson boats listed
I can e-mail back home in Venezuela to two of my boat building buddies and ask them about rates and any import issues - the Bolivar is very low and in the past you could find rustic but very good shipyards either in Margarita Island (more expensive), Puerto La Cruz, or in Morrocoy or Tucacas - much cheaper - let me know if this is a good route for you. 
My best friend keeps his yatch in his waterfront condo in Puerto La Cruz and he can tell me which marina can give you a good deal
Here is the link for Venezuela:
 I also have good friends in Jamaica but now we are talking hurricane alley - that is the good thing about Trinidad and Venezuela - not one single hurricane since the 1800

Hi Gang the cost of boatbuilding over the years has Im sure caused us all to spend many hours thinking. The difficulty as I see it is that when it cost more than $10 and hour to build it just does not makes sense. Here is Canada it is had to find a good builder for less than $35 hour and they need that much to stay open. . When you pay that much it is impossible to get the money back. Not sure what they want in the Caribbean or Central/South America.
