Thankfully, it’s quite easy to find a calm cove or bay perfect for the littlies. But you could also swim with stingrays at Stingray City on Grand Cayman, swing through the treetops like Tarzan at Aerial Trek Zipline Adventures in Barbados, or slip down the slides at the massive Las Cascada Water Park in Puerto Rico. From watersports to dolphin encounters and resorts that cater especially to kids, there’s a great range of fabulous family friendly attractions on offer.
With such beautiful surroundings at every turn, romance comes naturally here. Take a long walk on the beach at sunset, enjoy a scrumptious meal with ocean views, or indulge in some pampering in a luxurious resort spa. Other romantic highlights include the shimmering Diamond Waterfalls in St. Lucia, the amazing panoramic views from the gondola ride in St. Thomas, and Pink Sands Beach, where the love-tinged, pearly-pink shores stretch long into the distance.
The easiest way to get around once you dock at a Caribbean Island is to hire a car. This offers the most freedom and the ability to get off the beaten track. If you’re looking for more structure, consider a day tour offered on board or specifically tailored to your interests. While there is some local transport, it can be limiting.
Day or night, you’ll hear the local beats fill the air long before you see where it’s coming from. Rhythm comes naturally here, and both music and dance is a part of everyday life. From salsa and meringue to rumba, a fascinating range of Latin American influences bring the dance floors to life – and a dance lesson is the perfect way to get a true local experience while having a blast.
