What is some good tropical music?

I've been listening to El Guincho
lately and I'm interested in getting more into "tropical" music, but I don't know where to begin. I'd prefer to listen to the "greats" rather than more modern stuff like El Guincho. I feel like tropical music as a label encompasses a really wide variety of sounds and locales, but the kind of music I'm looking for is really sunny and beach-y, that brings images of colorful parrots and palm trees. I'm not looking for anything you'd call "world music" (really commercial sounding stuff with house beats or whatever they add to try and make it appealing), if you understand my meaning.
