CARIBBEAN

Relaxing on smooth Caribbean sands can be more invigorating than the most lavish spa treatment. The stretches of sand spill into the calmest, sapphire waters of your dreams. A Caribbean island is the picture-perfect place for any traveler in search of adventure, history, or just lounging under the sun.  Each island in the Caribbean has its own distinctive flare. Some have colonial towns or other historical tributes to explore; others are famous for their white-sand beaches. Travelers love their resorts, which many offer all-inclusive, but regardless of which island is right for you be sure to get out and explore!

JAMAICA

Indisputably unique, this tropical phenomenon is a melting pot of vibrant culture and history. Discover the natural splendor of Dunn’s River Falls, explore the Blue Mountains or ride a bamboo raft down the Rio Grande. Whether the topic is dominoes or politics, the spirit of this island comes out in every interaction. Jamaica was the birthplace of the Caribbean all-inclusive resort, a concept that started in Ocho Rios and has spread throughout the island, so that now most hotel rates are all-inclusive. Package prices usually include airport transfers, accommodations, three meals a day, snacks, all bar drinks (often including premium liquors) and soft drinks, a full menu of sports options (including scuba diving and golf at high-end establishments), nightly entertainment, and all gratuities and taxes. High season in Jamaica runs approximately from mid-December through mid-April. From May through mid-December, you can save from 20% to as much as 40% on rates.

ST. MARTIN

French and Dutch have lived side by side on St. Maarten/St. Martin for hundreds of years—with no border patrols or customs between them. The French-owned St. Martin has a more proper atmosphere, more elegant shopping, and a Continental feel. The Dutch-owned St. Maarten tends to be more affordable, offer vibrant casino hotels, and exciting nightlife. Water sports swarm all over—diving, snorkeling, sailing, and windsurfing are all top attractions. It’s easy to spend the day relaxing on one of the 37 beaches, walking the boardwalk of Dutch-side Philipsburg, and exploring the French town of Marigot. On the French side, parades, ceremonies, and celebrations honor Bastille Day on July 14, and there are more festivities later in the month on Grand Case Day. The Dutch side hosts the Heineken Regatta in early March, with as many as 300 sailboats competing from around the world. The high season begins in December and runs through the middle of April. During the off-season, hotel rooms can be as little as half the high-season rates.

ST. THOMAS

St. Thomas combines the natural beauty of the Caribbean with the cosmopolitan atmosphere of the United States. Here you'll find stunning white-sand beaches perfect for all of your watersports dreams or for simply sitting underneath the shade of a palm tree looking out over one of the most beautiful destinations in the world. You'll also find chic dining, classy resorts, exciting nightlife, golf, and world-class tax-free shopping. It has been said that the finest shopping in the Caribbean can be found on St. Thomas and Main Street offers a cosmic selection of shops and boutiques. On St. Thomas there are also many historical and cultural activities for travelers to enjoy. Impressive vantage points include Drake's Seat, where Sir Francis Drake would sit to observe his taskforce, and Paradise Point where you can take a tram 700 feet to look out over Charlotte Amalie Harbor and beyond. Fort Christian, a Danish fort named for King Christian V, the oldest standing structure in the Virgin Islands is also a must-see when visiting the superb St. Thomas.

ST. LUCIA

As one of the most popular destination for Caribbean vacations, the glorious island of St. Lucia offers its visitors the pampering of its grand resorts; a continuous schedule of activities to entertain anyone and everyone; gigantic mountains, volcanoes, and valleys draped in luscious green; and the awe-inspiring magnetism of palm and banana trees, accented by soft, white-sand beaches and shimmering, turquoise water stretching as far as the eye can see. This unyielding beauty attracts couples, honeymooners, and those who desire to retreat, relax, rejuvenate, explore, and revel in all that this remarkable island has to offer.  For the exploring travelers who are up for an adventure, take a tour or taxi up to the top of the Soufriere Volcano, where you can experience the world's only drive-in volcanic crater. Witness steaming mud, boiling sulfur springs, and hissing pools. It's a one-of-a-kind quest every visitor should experience.

BAHAMAS

The Bahamas, which translates to ‘shallow seas’, is one of the world’s best known holiday destinations. This stretched out archipelago between Florida and Haiti is a place of stunning islands, cays, and beaches that can be visited year-round for their pleasant weather. The Bahamas is hailed as a winter playground among Americans and Europeans, who come for the sun, sand, diving, boating, fishing, and quality resorts. Lounging on beaches and sightseeing the wonderful selection of islands are the main interests. New Providence where the capital, Nassau, is located, and neighboring Paradise Island and Grand Bahama, are the main origins with the finest hotels, accommodations, and entertainment. The best beaches are Cable Beach on New Providence and Treasure Cay Beach on Abaco. Paradise Island has the best of the manufactured attractions, with a variety of family-friendly activities and swimming pools. Opportunities to revel in the warm waters are seemingly limitless. The clear waters are usually warm—even in winter—and have nearly perfect visibility for divers. The coral reefs are striking in appearance and are also accessible, while land-based events are also seemingly endless.

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

The stretches of beaches and all-inclusive resorts along the Dominican Republic’s northeast shores are the first images many travelers have of this dominant Caribbean vacation. However, visitors who stick to sunbathing and water sports are only scratching the surface of everything the Dominican Republic has to offer. A stroll down Santo Domingo’s Colonial Zone takes visitors past the western hemisphere’s oldest cathedral, the New World’s first street, and over five centuries of fascinating history spanning just a few blocks. Samana has been the Dominican Republic’s informal whale watching center since Christopher Columbus first caught sight of the enormous humpbacks in 1493. Today, about 4,000 whales return to Samana’s warm waters each January. Victoria Marine offers daily morning whale watching tours between January 15 and March 20. The Dominican Republic’s most respectable horseback riding stable is the Gipsy Ranch, whose 20 horses can be taken out on one to four-hour rides. Iguana Mama has offered the Dominican Republic’s supreme selection of mountain biking tours since 1993. These scenic tours range from relaxed guided Yasika River treks to more extreme expeditions across El Choco National Park.
