Help me find a specific Caribbean souvenir mug that I saw while visiting St. Lucia in January.

My husband and I went on our first serious vacation this January and had a great time visiting St. Lucia. While there, we stopped at a little roadside stand selling these very nifty dark blue coffee mugs with a white map of the Caribbean islands. We didn't buy them because it was one of the first places we stopped and we didn't want to be lugging them around all day. Also, we figured we'd see the same mugs at 80 other places around the island. Well, no such luck.

Anyway, we both still mention those mugs when we're making coffee in the morning and kind of laugh about how we wish we'd bought them. So, my husbands birthday is coming up and I though how cool it would be to buy 2 and surprise him. The problem is I've been searching and can't figure out how to find the mug...can anyone help me?

Mug description - dark cobalt blue mug, maybe tapered at the bottom, map is in white but not in a white box...it looks like it's etched into the mug so that the blue represents the water surrounding the islands. I think the map is just the Caribbean islands.

This one isn't dark blue, but I'll post it just in case.

Not a match but it's closer than anything else I've found so far. The mug I'm looking for is dark blue all over, a more inverted triangle shape and the map is more traditional...like a real navigation map if that makes any sense.
