Caribbean Tours, Travel and ActivitiesCARIBBEAN Tours and Travel

Spend a bit of time in the Caribbean and you risk taking paradise for granted. And how easy it is too, for there are far too many perfect beaches, shimmering coral reefs and beautiful sunsets throughout the islands of the Caribbean, not to mention idyllic resorts and mangrove forests. Ok now, all together: Aruba, Jamaica, ooh I wanna take you, Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama ...

Antigua & Barbuda Tours, Travel and Activities Antigua & Barbuda Tours, Travel and Activities ANTIGUA & BARBUDA Tours, Travel and Activities

Antigua's tourist office boasts that the island has 365 beaches, 'one for each day of the year'. It has great reefs and wrecks for diving and snorkelling. On neighboring Barbuda you can track the island's fabled frigate birds and visit the Caribbean's largest rookery.

There is a brief respite from heavy rain between February and May; during this period temperatures hover around the 30oC (86oF) mark and there's slightly less humidity. The wet season peaks around August to October, when tropical hurricanes are also most likely.

Aruba Tours, Travel and Activities Aruba Tours, Travel and Activities ARUBA Tours, Travel and Activities

This parched speck of an island off the coast of Venezuela has guaranteed sunshine and is blessed with beaches that make you say 'ahhh.' Tourism is the big business in Aruba and it's served in a double scoop of sun bunnies from North America and Holland.

Although large-scale tourism dominates the island, there are still undeveloped areas on the exposed northern coast, and much of the interior is inhabited by nothing more than goats and contorted divi-divi trees.

Bahamas Tours, Travel and Activities Bahamas Tours, Travel and Activities BAHAMAS Tours, Travel and Activities

The Bahamas has successfully promoted itself as a destination for US jetsetters, and a lot of it is Americanized. Yet there are still opportunities among its 700 islands and 2500 cays to disappear into a mangrove forest and explore a coral reef.

The 18th-century Privateers' Republic has become a modern banker's paradise, at least on New Providence and Grand Bahama. On the other islands - once known as the Out Islands but now euphemistically called the Family Islands - the atmosphere is more truly West Indian.

Barbados Tours, Travel and Activities Barbados Tours, Travel and Activities BARBADOS Tours, Travel and Activities

Barbados is the 'Little England' of the Caribbean, but not so much so that the locals have given up rotis for kidney pies, or rum for bitter ale. Bajans, as the islanders call themselves, are as West Indian as any of their Caribbean neighbors.

During a period of low rain from December til May the mercury usually peaks just under the 86oF (30oC) mark, making the conditions in Barbados at this time highly visit worthy. Later in the year, the temperature gets only slightly warmer but rainfall is substantially heavier.

Cayman Islands Tours, Travel and Activities Cayman Islands Tours, Travel and Activities CAYMAN ISLANDS Tours, Travel and Activities

The Cayman Islands are dotted with deal-cutting characters with briefcases and cellphones, scuba divers in electric wetsuits and English folk checking the cricket scores over a tipple. The islands vibrate with color: coral reefs, bright orange frogfish, sociable stingrays and reggae beats on the street.

As a result of the island's mellow charms, resorts and condos have sprung up all over, and you can count on air-con, cold beer and ESPN. But if you want to get away from it all there are lots of places to escape satellite dishes and slickness, not least of them underwater.

Curacao Tours, Travel and Activities Curacao Tours, Travel and Activities CURACAO Tours, Travel and Activities

Curacao's beaches may be nubbled with coral or strewn with imported grains and the local liqueur may be a first rate rotgut, but it more than makes up for these niggles with high comfort levels, guaranteed balminess and a friendliness that constantly threatens to bubble over into a party.

With the average high in any day of the year not drifting too far from 86oF (30oC) there is plenty of sun for everyone, with spicy trade winds particularly seductive to northerners between January and March. October to December are the only particularly rainy months but showers are at most moderate in duration.

Dominican Republic Tours, Travel and Activities Dominican Republic Tours, Travel and Activities DOMINICAN REPUBLIC Tours, Travel and Activities

The white-sand beaches, impressive mountain ranges veined with spectacular rivers and waterfalls, and saltwater lakes teeming with exotic wildlife are just part of the Dominican Republic's appeal.

Whether you're looking to party, relax or explore, the Dominican Republic has a lot to offer. And while there's little change in temperature throughout the year, with a daily range somewhere between the 68-86oF (20-30oC) mark, head to the north coast and things get a lot wetter.

Jamaica Tours, Travel and Activities Jamaica Tours, Travel and Activities JAMAICA Tours, Travel and Activities

Ever since Errol Flynn cavorted here with his Hollywood pals in the 1930s and '40s, travelers have regarded Jamaica as one of the most alluring of the Caribbean islands. Its beaches, mountains and carnal red sunsets regularly appear in the sort of tourist brochures that promise paradise.

The northern mountain slopes shelter Kingston and the south coast from the worst of torrential Caribbean rain so there's little chance of cancelled limbo marathons, in case you were worried.

Puerto Rico Tours, Travel and Activities Puerto Rico Tours, Travel and Activities PUERTO RICO Tours, Travel and Activities

Puerto Rico is where four centuries of Spanish Caribbean culture comes face to face with the American convenience store.

This leads to some strange juxtapositions - parking lots and plazas, freeways and fountains, skyscrapers and shanties - but it's all apiece with the Caribbean's hybrid history. US and Canadian citizens do not require visas or passports but must have valid ID.

St Kitts - Nevis Tours, Travel and Activities St Kitts - Nevis Tours, Travel and Activities ST KITTS - NEVIS Tours, Travel and Activities

St Kitts is as hopping as Nevis is sleepy, but relaxation and a rum punch are requisites on both islands. The dual island nation may officially separate soon, but visitors can still enjoy a menu of plantation-cum-boutique hotels, palm tree-lined beaches and adventurous hikes.

Between February and May, the slightly drier conditions and decadently hot highs, usually around 30oC (87oF) will trump your tropical dreams. Other months can get quite wet, with a hurricane season from August to October.

St Lucia Tours, Travel and Activities St Lucia Tours, Travel and Activities ST LUCIA Tours, Travel and Activities

A spate of resort developments on St Lucia has made this high, green island one of the Caribbean's fashionable package-tour destinations, but it's still a long way from being sanitized and overdeveloped. Bananas are still bigger business than tourism in this archetypal island paradise.

The western shores of St Lucia are a mighty fine place to be from February to April when the rain eases off. At this time you can expect daily highs around the 84oF mark with conditions getting only slightly hotter but much wetter the rest of the year.

Trinidad & Tobago Tours, Travel and Activities Trinidad & Tobago Tours, Travel and Activities TRINIDAD & TOBAGO Tours, Travel and Activities

Tobago and its big sister, Trinidad, are the Caribbean's odd couple. Tiny Tobago is relaxed, slow-paced and largely undeveloped. Trinidad is a densely populated, thriving island with a cosmopolitan population and strong regional influences.

The islands' capital Port of Spain is a bustling metropolitan hub of approximately 300,000 people. It's not the country's tourist centre by any means, since its attractions are limited to a few 19th-century colonial buildings and its hotels are geared toward business travelers rather than tourists.

US Virgin Islands Tours, Travel and Activities US Virgin Islands Tours, Travel and Activities US VIRGIN ISLANDS Tours, Travel and Activities

US Virgin Islands If people are going to persist with an American dream, they may as well wake up to some of this. Though the US flag and postal trucks prevail, the commonalities pretty much stop there. The laid-back vibe and some of the most magnificent coast on earth provide a taste of paradise and a bit of light relief to millions each year.

Perhaps the most pleasant climatic aspect of these islands is the combination of the trade winds that keep humidity low, and the Caribbean currents that keep waters warm.
