The Caribbean islands are some of the most popular destinations in the world. Countless numbers of travelers flock to the white sand beaches and tropical resorts every year. It’s no wonder, aside from hurricane season, the Caribbean has near-perfect weather, tons of sunshine along with amazing experiences, and incredible food. It’s almost like heaven on Earth!
Here are my top three picks for your next Caribbean getaway.
Located in the southeast of the Caribbean island chain, St. Lucia is a popular destination for all the right reasons. Its dramatic mountain backdrop and exotic jungle ecosystems allow for exploring, hiking, and adding a bit of adventure to your relaxation. It’s also known as a honeymooner’s paradise with romantic all-inclusive resorts that take luxury to the next level.
World-class dining and fresh, exotic fruit are a vacation for your tastebuds. St. Lucia uniquely blends Afro-Caribbean and Indo-European culinary styles allowing you to experience this eclectic cuisine at high-end restaurants or street vendors. However you decide to grab a bite, you’ll get a mouthful of local flavor. In this Caribbean paradise, romance is always on the menu.
Arguably one of the best-known Caribbean Islands, Jamaica has plenty to offer couples coming to kick back for a few nights. One of the oldest inhabited islands in the Caribbean, Jamaica is brimming with history and a unique culture that can only be found in this tropical paradise. Reggae music, casual atmosphere, and amazing food come together to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience that will have you dreaming of when you’re coming back!
Jamaica is the third-largest Caribbean island, meaning there’s plenty to do, see and experience. Natural scenery, historical sites, and of course, beaches, are all a short jaunt away. If you’re hoping to get away from it all, kick back and truly relax, the resorts know how to make sure your time is rejuvenating while making sure they go above and beyond your expectations.
Aruba is dry, sunny, and warm all year round. It’s also located largely outside the hurricane belt meaning that your dream vacation won’t be interrupted by mother nature. The south side of the island is dominated by white sand beaches and calm ocean currents. This is one place you’ll have no excuse but to kick back and relax. And take my word for it, it has some of the best sunsets you’ve ever seen.
Aruba’s small size makes it ideal for those looking to get out and explore beyond the resort’s confines. Aruba has also seized its best natural resource, the ocean, and made it a focal point for anyone looking to visit their island paradise. Scuba and snorkeling are prominent attractions to put you in touch with the marine world while experiencing the crystal clear waters that flank the island.
And much like any Caribbean island, they’ve capitalized on having amazing accommodations sure to fulfill your getaway desires. All-inclusive resorts allow you to set a home base for your vacation or unwind and relax without having to worry about a thing.
The Caribbean is a diverse, amazing chain of islands with something for everyone. I just highlighted a few here, but if you’d like to know more about planning a Caribbean vacation to any of the islands, contact me at katestravel.com
