I have identified these as fuzzy chitons although they are not typical looking. I photographed the species on Isla Mona: www.flickr.com/photos/alan_cressler/453399047/in/set-7215...
I have attached a website with images that display several variations. These chitons are large, almost three inches long. There are very few species that reach that size in the Caribbean. reefguide.org/chiton.html
