Welcome to Caribbean Holidays

Think Caribbean and you think beach holiday. And you certainly won’t find a better destination for lounging in the sand, preferably with something rum-based nearby. That isn’t nearly all that these islands have to offer though. Rain forests and mountains for starters; distinctive island cultures that only have providing a good time in common; and exciting towns and cities with some fascinating history.

As holiday destinations the islands of the Caribbean offer something for everyone. They’re a brilliant family destination with loads of attractions and days out for kids. For romantic souls there’s nothing like a Caribbean sunset to tick the box. You might want to return for your honeymoon or even to get married on the beach. But if a beach towel, a book and a planter’s punch is all you need, you’ll never find anywhere better to lie back and soak in relaxation.

You might want to replace that tin-shack bar in your fantasy with a big, luxurious, all-inclusive resort hotel. And that’s easily enough done. The islands of the Caribbean are very used to welcoming guests, and they do it style. High quality customer service and endless pampering is top of the agenda here.

But if you’re worried about the effect all that good living is going to have on the beach body you spent months working to perfect, you can throw in a very healthy dose of activities while you’re at it. The islands all have excellent water sports on tap. Diving’s a particular favourite because the underwater picture here is as colourful as the one above the waves. There are also inland adventures to be had, from off-roading or zip-wiring through unspoiled jungle to climbing extinct volcanoes and canyoning in mountain streams.

The Caribbean’s far from being one-dimensional. There are more than 7,000 islands in the group. Though only 13 of them are inhabited island nations, they are a colourful cocktail of distinctive cultures, unique environments, and long, storied histories.
