Caribbean mythological creatures

I'm turning to you, little_details, for my Google-fu is stuck.

I have a character in mind, a Santeria priestess (santera) and I want to make her be an immortal or something along those lines.  I don't want to do the stereotypical, expected thing where she's an Orisha in hiding.  I want something more magical but not in the god realm.  I was just wondering what kind of mythological creatures there were (like the Black Dog, etc) in Latin American cultures, Cuban specifically if possible.

I googled Latin American folklore, Cuban mythology, Caribbean mythology and various combinations of those terms.
