Southeast of the Gulf of Mexico lies the sun-soaked Caribbean Islands. Think white sandy beaches, crystal clear water, strong rum and a culture that focusses on the good times. Covering an area over 2.75km squared, there’s plenty to explore and securing your own private slice of paradise is almost guaranteed on these stunning Caribbean holidays.
For those after the ultimate mix of culture + colour, head to the charismatic island of Cuba. Forget what you’ve heard – you don’t know Cuba until you’ve feasted on local lobster tails + danced the night away in Havana’s backstreets. Next, a night in a Jamaican bar complete with local spicy chicken + silky Jamaican Rum will get you in the right mood for the rest of the lively islands.
For the adventurers, Caribbean holidays harbour some of North America’s most flamboyant and culture-rich islands. While St Martin offers the best of French and Indian Caribbean cuisine, the Dominican Republic boasts the most breathtaking snorkelling hotspots. Next, escape the crowds and head to the turquoise waters of Terre-De-Haut and Îles Des Saintes.
