White sandy beaches, shimmering turquoise waters and swaying palm trees make the Caribbean a perennially popular and luxurious vacation destination. Yet the islands that are part of the long archipelago that stretches from the Bahamas off the coast of Florida, down to Trinidad, Tobago and neighbouring Venezuela, each have their own beauty, hidden treasures and distinct culture.

The magnificence of the tropical landscape is so encompassing and breathtaking it rivals anywhere on the planet. Explore the Barbados capital of Bridgetown, a UNESCO World Heritage site and home to colourful colonial architecture. On St. Lucia, you can be trekking through mountainous jungle one minute and falling asleep in a hammock with the sound of the ocean the next.

Dig your toes into the picture-perfect sands of Jamaican beaches, feast on goat curry and immerse yourself in the music scene - from the traditional sounds of the Taino Indians to ska, reggae, and today’s dancehall movement. Make the most of the outstanding waters of Antigua where activities abound with sailing, diving, swimming, and some of the best kite surfing out there.

What’s so alluring about this collection of islands is how they offer such diverse sightseeing, sports, Caribbean cuisine, shopping and nightlife; which makes it a firm vacation favourite with families. Thanks to the secluded coastline and decadent and romantic resorts, the Caribbean is also the quintessential getaway for couples and honeymooners searching for an escape with that extra special something.
