Things to Do and See

Caribbean BeachThe Caribbean is probably best known for its magnificent sun drenched beaches surrounded by turquoise waters. Ideal for lazing, walking or swimming.

A beach sunset is something that must be experienced.

But the Caribbean is much more.

Indulge in your favourite watersport. Spectacular corals and fish provide some of the best diving and snorkeling sites in the world.

Fishing is second to none, windsurfing is superb especially in the early months of the year and, of course, crewed or bareboat sailboats are available for charter throughout the region.

For those preferring their sports on land, the Caribbean boasts some of the finest golf courses. Many hotels and resorts offer tennis courts. There is good hiking in the islands - explore the active volcanoes in St. Lucia or Dominica. Those interested in ecotourism must try some of the nature parks.

Rich in history, discover the Caribbean and learn about Caribs, Columbus, the pirates and buccaneers and the slave trade all of which have shaped the people and culture of the islands. Wonderful historical sites abound.

Music is at the core of the Caribbean culture. From salsa in Puerto Rico and Cuba, merengue in Dominican Republic, zouk in Martinique and Guadeloupe, calypso and soca in Trinidad to reggae immortalized by Bob Marley in Jamaica and heard on most of the islands. Jazz festivals are popular; the longest running is the now famous festival on St. Lucia in May.

Any of the Caribbean Carnivals are worth visiting. The famous Trinidad carnival in February each year attracts visitors from around the world.

Eating out in the Caribbean is to be recommended. World-class restaurants with top notch international chefs are to be found on most islands now; side-by-side with local restaurants offering distinctive Caribbean flavours. Don't forget to check out the local rums and beers.

Some of the islands offer excellent shopping. From the exclusive stores in Nassau to the spices found in the St. George's market on Grenada you'll be able to find something to catch your fancy. Curacao, Sint Maarten, St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands and Nassau and Freeport in The Bahamas are all duty-free ports.

If you like to try your luck, the Caribbean and The Bahamas offer a number of casinos. Vacationers are drawn to Puerto Rico, The Bahamas and Aruba in particular.
