When you consider a Caribbean holiday, what is the first thing that comes to mind? A romp in the warm surf with pirates? A relaxing, renewing slice of tropical paradise? A couples’ massage on the beach? Good news, you’re right on all counts. There are hundreds of islands, islets, reefs, and cays that comprise the balmy Caribbean Islands, and each offers its own version of heaven on earth.

What to Do in the Caribbean

The many small coves and cays provided the perfect hiding spot for pirates like Henry Jennings and ‘Blackbeard’ (Edward Teach), who ambushed treasure-laden boats bound for Europe. With a rich history built on the result of combining piracy and privateering, sugar and rum, slavery and revolt, and colonial conquest, the islands offer travelers a vibrant mixture of cultures to choose from. As you read through the various descriptions on this site, you’ll start to get a feel for the experience that’s right for you.

The Northern Caribbean extending off the tip of Florida include the popular Bahamas renowned for its coral cays, elegant resorts and scuba diving. The high islands of the Central Caribbean are home to Jamaica and Domincan Republic with great scope for adventure and exploring. Peeling off these in a great semi circle petering out to the coast of Venezuala are the small romantic islands of The Southern Caribbean with dreamy ports like … in NameIsland, secluded bays especially those found in both Virgin Islands and hidden treasures few people have heard of like Name where you can step back into yesterday far away from the main tourism havens.

The powdery sands on the many sheltered beaches range in colour from snowy white to salmon pink, through to dark, rich brown and charcoal black. It’s an archipelago closely tied to the ocean, and we’re confident you’ll fall under its spell as soon as you feel the sea spray on your skin. You’ll grab for your camera when a sea turtle floats by, and enjoy chasing schools of colourful fish around sunken ships while snorkeling. There are mountains and volcanoes to climb surrounded by forests that challenge you to find the right ‘green’ to use in your blog, with dozens of different tropical birds flying just above you in flashes of color and song. There are waves to surf, jungles to zip through and rivers to raft, golf swings to perfect, and traditions to learn. Enjoy dancing? Each island has its own local traditions, and all share the allure of reggae and salsa. Like trying new foods? You can eat freshly caught seafood and spicy island stews, and then spend the rest of the day napping it off in a hammock.

Caribbean Holidays Guide

While it’s true that traveling in the Caribbean islands can get expensive, but costs can vary greatly depending on which islands you visit and when, the level and location of your accommodations, and how carried away you get when bartering for handmade goods. Eating out can also be relatively expensive in the Caribbean; one way to save is to sample local street food – usually cheap and delicious. Or you can rent a place with a small kitchenette and eat on your balcony or poolside cabana.

When considering the best time to take your trip to the Caribbean, you’ll find its more about the weather where you live than in the islands, where it is warm and sunny throughout the year. You can reduce your ‘summer’ vacation costs by visiting the islands during the low season, which runs from mid-April through mid-December. Prices at hotels fall, package deals abound, and the more popular beach and port towns aren’t quite so crowded.

Caribbean Travel Info

Transportation costs vary greatly, both by island and by season. On the more developed islands you can rent a vehicle or take public transportation. On some you can find taxis or hire a scooter to get around. Most of the larger islands have at least one international airport, with flights in and out from major cities around the globe. Most of the islands also have smaller, local airlines that accommodate island hopping.
