Overview

The Caribbean region is southeast of the Gulf of Mexico and apart of the North American mainland. A group of islands and countries surrounded by water manage to bring their own flavor to the mass amounts of tourists each year. There is a large world in the Caribbean that is all waiting to be discovered. Every country and island are slightly different, but more often than not you come across two common themes; an admired mix of Caribbean culture and a beachy vibe.

Things to Do
  • Hike the Waitukubuli National Trail in Dominica
  • Swim with pigs in the Bahamas
  • Swim with stingrays in the Cayman Islands
  • Hike Gros Piton in Saint Lucia
  • Go whale watching on the Samaná Peninsula
  • Drink coffee in the Blue Mountains in Jamacia
  • Visit the Baths in Virgin Gorda
  • Dive Bonaire
  • Paddleboarding in Tobago to see the magical experience of the organisms that light up
Facts
  • Currency: All forms are different
  • Languages in the Caribbean’s are Spanish, English, Dutch, Haitian Creole and Papiamento
  • Parts of all four Pirates of the Caribbean movies (The Curse of the Black Pearl, Dead Man’s Chest, At World’s End and On Stranger Tides), were filmed in the Caribbean.
Be Advised
  • December to April the peak months (drier, cooler, less humid)

  • September to October the most common for hurricanes, with rains starting in June.
