Caribé is an album by the Latin Jazz Quintet with Eric Dolphy that was recorded in 1960 and released on the New Jazz label in February 1961.

Dolphy biographers Vladimir Simosko and Barry Tepperman wrote: “Pianist Gene Casey and vibraphonist Charlie Simons produce consistently good solos, but the strongest voice on the date is Eric’s, both because his horn is intrinsically the strongest instrument in the group, and because his ideas and musical personality are the most forceful. However he does not take advantage of these circumstances to dominate the proceedings; he plays with the group, in the best sense of the phrase, yet does not sacrifice his own personal approach to playing. The same philosophy that made his records with [Chico] Hamilton generally successful is evident, and the resulting recordings are both interesting and satisfying.”
