The Caribbean

 The Caribbean has to be one of the most exciting destinations in the world.  Renowned for conjuring up images of palm fringed white sand beaches and beautiful blue waters. Therefore,  an ideal destination for both  families and couples.

Which Island?

There are several islands to choose from.Furthermore, they all have their own unique characteristics. In fact, you don’t even need to be a beach lover to enjoy the Caribbean. Here are 3 of our top sellers just to give you a taste of what else is in store.


With 365 beaches – one for every day of the year – it is a great choice for families. There are also adult only hotels so a great choice to for honeymooners.

Admiral Horatio Nelson made his base here in the 1780’s. The dockyard in English Harbour has been renovated and is named Nelson’s Dockyard in his honour. Additionally, there is a marina and a museum.

There are walking trails up to the top of Shirley Heights, a former military lookout, offering fabulous panoramic views.

Devil’s Bridge rock formation on the NorthWest corner of the island is worth a visit. An area of dramatic rocks and blowholes.

The Caribbean

English Harbour


An Independent British Commonwealth Nation. Bridgetown, the capital, is a cruise-port with colonial buildings.

The West Coast is often referred to as the ‘Platinum Coast’. Clear waters lapping on to golden sand. Therefore, ideal for families or couples.

The South Coast of Barbados is a curious mix of the Caribbean and the Atlantic Ocean. There is calm swimming, snorkelling and at the most southern tip, windsurfing.  The South Coast is also the area where most of the night life can be found.  It is also where you will find the Friday night fish fry at Oistins.

The East Coast is more dramatic. Carved by the Atlantic Ocean. It is the most scenic part of the island. Best way to explore is by a Bajan Taxi. They will even take you to a rum shop or two.

Other sights include the botanical gardens, Harrisons Cave, and plantation houses such as St Nicholas Abbey.

You could take part in a local tradition such as watching a game of cricket, a glass of rum in a rum shop or an afternoon tea.

The Caribbean



Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean. It is also the regions most fascinating country. A mix of Spanish colonial cities, 1950’s Cadillacs,  wonderful live music, world-class cigars and an arcane communist system.

The main thing to remember about Cuba is that things don’t always go to plan or work as they should. Although hotel service and food is improving, it is not on the same level as some of its other neighbours.

Havana is the capital and makes a great city break. In particular, it is the cultural hub and has some great nightlife.

Take a self-drive or group tour to visit the beautiful tobacco heartlands of Vinales and the beautiful crumbling city of Trinidad. Learn about the revolution. Even stay with Cubans in their own homes – paladares.

Of course, let’s not forget the beaches. There are beaches around Havana, and the main resort town of Varadero is to be found on the Hicacos Peninsular. If you would like to view sea turtles then head to the area of Cayo Largo del Sur. For coral reefs and flamingoes then head to Cayo Caco.

  • Belize -home to the second largest barrier reef in the world.
