If you could go to one place in your life, I would recommend going to the Caribbean. It is one of the most beautiful places in the world you will ever see. There are wonderful sandy beaches lined with palm trees the most wonderful views. However, if you’re not one of those people that like to relax when you’re going on a vacation, there are places like Europe to get your hit of culture. Caribbean is a prime opportunity to relax kick back and slip away. Here are some other things to think about doing.
Enjoying a beach trip on one of the many beaches
The Kontiki beach resort in Curacao is a haven of beautiful sights as well as a convenient location for a luxury resort, especially when you compare it to many the other resorts. You can find out more via caribbeansbest.org, but there are also plenty of water sports and scuba diving opportunities for guests and tourists.
Eating wonderful food in Antigua
If you don’t like spicy food, this might not be the place for you, but if you love gorgeous chicken rice and peas, with a zingy, refreshing Caribbean slaw on the side, you need to check out this place. Even if spicy isn’t your thing, you could try a soursop in Antigua, which is a dark green fruit that is quite spiky and tastes a little bit like crème anglaise. As a dessert, it is a wonderful follow up to some tasty chicken.
Drinking rum in Nevis
You can’t mention the Caribbean without mentioning the wonderful rums that are made here, and before you leave, you need to head to Sunshine’s beach bar for a refreshing rum cocktail.
Going caving in Barbados
By taking an open train you could adventure deep into a cave made of crystallized limestone, and you can keep your eye out for a magnificent collection of stalactites and stalagmites. As far as adventure is concerned in the Caribbean, there is plenty to choose from.
Go boating in the Bahamas
If you’ve got a family keen for some action, take the many power boats to the Exuma Cays before getting into the sea to snorkel or to feed stingrays and sharks. Or if you’re not feeling that brave, you can go for a nice walk and enjoy the beautiful greenery of this gorgeous island.
View the Montserrat Volcano
You can head to the Montserrat Volcano Observatory and see the larger than life volcano rumble from a safe distance through binoculars, or you can take a boat to the capital Plymouth or look at the houses of St George’s Hill to get a sobering view of the aftermath.
Go painting in Jamaica
The Beaches Boscobel Resort has an art camp which is not just for children but for adults to make murals and collages, as well as take part in oil pastel and advanced watercolor classes. It’s great if you want to get your creative streak on in the beautiful sunshine.
Do yoga in Parrot Cay
There are many yoga retreats around the Caribbean, as well as poetry and music to cater for those that aren’t keen on doing the downward facing dog, but would rather sit back and enjoy the sunshine!
