Possible to renew H1B visa in a Caribbean country?

I need to renew my H1B visa, and while it is suggested I do this in the US consulate in the country where my passport was issued (New Zealand), I have heard of other types of visas (Eg E3) being renewed, without issue, in Caribbean countries that have US embassies/consulates.

I live in NY, so it would be difficult to get time off work and very expensive to go all the way back to New Zealand for the visa stamping, and I'd love an excuse to visit the Caribbean!

So does anyone know if it possible to renew my H1B in a Caribbean country that is not my home country and where I am not a resident?

Why don't you check with the US State Department office in NY - they can give you the most accurate answer to your question.

It's hard to do anything in any Caribbean country, and they can take months to years anyway

If it can't be done in NY, then NZ is your only option.....
