Many have journeyed from both near and far to visit this gorgeous island chain; and for good reasons. Surrounded by the most breathtaking pink and white sand beaches and abundant choices in delicious gastronomy, the Bahamas is certainly one of the best ways to define paradise.
Comprised of a series of small islands, the Bahamas stands out as the place for seclusion and ultimate adventures in the Caribbean. Whether your passion is for the high seas or on land, there is a special activity awaiting you in the Bahamas.
Please don’t be deterred if you find the capital Nassau to be a bit too crowded for your taste. The many outer islands are sure to wow you in seclusion, privacy and total relaxation. Imagine one of them being your own? If you’ve got the cash, The Bahamas have got a private island to match.
Much like Jamaica, the Bahamas also offer several Caribbean cruise ports, most of them privately owned by cruise liners such as Disney.
USVI, ST. THOMAS
Being only 31.24 square miles in area, it is possible to drive around the entire island of St. Thomas in as little as two hours. Naturally hilly, the sights and sceneries that you will encounter along the way will both excite and fascinate you.
A visit to the capital Charlotte Amalie will expose you to a vast network of duty free shops, carrying a wide selection of elegant jewelry, alcohol and many other items.
There are several exotic beaches that you can visit on your day out in St. Thomas.
With so much going on it is hard to imagine that Saint Thomas has no natural resources of its own; but this is in fact true. Saving water is serious business on the island; all buildings are required to carry a rain water catchment facility to ease the burden on the island’s sole fresh water manufacture plant.
Overall, the island is very low on crime and even lower on visitor harassment; a day out in this island promises to be above all, a pleasant experience.
The Dominican Republic forms the center for aviation tourism in the Caribbean, having over 40 operational airports.
In addition to this, the country’s vast landscape hosts many pristine beaches, lakes, and mountains etc. that are all a major pull for vacationers.
Did I mention that some of the best hotels the Caribbean has to offer are also located here? But where is the Dominican Republic? Go here to get your answer.
A visit to the island of Puerto Rico will be unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before. Steeped in history, there are several historical sites to visit including the US National Parks of Old San Juan and Casa Bacardí.
Old San Juan itself will make you feel like you have moved back in time to the 15th century; as its cobble stone streets and other remnants from that era are still intact today.
Although Spanish speaking, English is also an official language as the island is a territory of the United States. In fact Puerto Rico’s national flag is never flown without the accompaniment of the United States flag; and US tourists also have the added benefit of discovering many familiarities in their exploration of the island.
The gay and lesbian population will feel most at home visiting Puerto Rico; where in fact there are several accommodation, food and entertainment facilities catering to homosexuals. Some are even owned and operated by fellow gays and lesbians.
At Christmas, Puerto Ricans celebrate the holidays in a very unique way that is different from the traditional Christmas celebrations of the western world. In fact, Christmas traditions in Puerto Rico extend well beyond December 25th.
No cruise is possible without money in the bank and incidentally Puerto Rico is also home to Banco Popular, the Caribbean’s most famous bank.
On my cruise day out in Puerto Rico, I had a very interesting encounter with a police officer; you simply have to read about it.
Nestled between the French islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique in the Eastern Caribbean, is the small un-exploited paradise island of Dominica. Comprising of several hills and mountains, this island is most famous for its natural landscape. At first glance you will think that the island is devoid of development but take a closer look and you will realize that Dominica’s aspect is totally deliberate. Unpretentious and unspoiled are the dominant features that you can expect to find throughout the island.
Eco-tourist enthusiasts from all over the world have visited Dominica to experience its exclusive natural environment. With every experience having its own enthralling uniqueness, it is somewhat difficult to define which is number one on the list.
From tropical rainforests boasting many rivers and waterfalls, to spectacular lakes, exotic beaches and gardens, Dominica has everything that will delight the eco-tourist.
