The Caribbean may bring to mind daydreams of rum, reggae, and cricket on the beach, but there is so much more to this dazzling region. We love the Caribbean because the islands never stand still. Ever changing and improving, with new hotels and exciting attractions. Every one of its islands are different, and we want to discover them all; from the unique and authentic personality of Jamaica and the natural charms of Grenada - The Spice Island, to the steel drums of Trinidad and Tobago and the salsa clubs of Cuba.
Life really is a beach in the Caribbean. Fall for the pastel pink stretches in the Bahamas, sip rum punch on Antigua's white powdery shores, with a different beach for every day of the year. Channel your inner Ursula Andress as you emerge from the sea in Jamaica, where Ian Fleming penned his 007 novels. Or catch a boat to postcard-pretty isles like the Dominican Republic's Saona Island, setting of that famous Bounty advert.
Waterfalls, caves, volcanoes, coral reefs; the Caribbean's 7,000 isles are dripping with natural treasures. In Jamaica, the world-famous Dunns River Falls descend like giant steps into the Caribbean Sea. The limestone formation of Antigua's Devil's Bridge forms a natural arch over the ocean. Harrison's Cave in Barbados is an underground world of streams, waterfalls, pools, and rock formations. And at 750 metres, the green Piton peaks are a constant reminder that you are in St Lucia.
Sleepy towns and bustling capitals, sugar plantations and naval forts, rum shacks and jerk chicken, carnivals and calypso; Caribbean culture is always a crowd-pleaser. Discover vintage cars, mojitos, and hand-rolled cigars in Cuba. Dance the merengue in the Dominican Republic. And indulge yourself at the Grenada Chocolate Company or Barbados' Mount Gay Rum factory.
