photo: Villa Palmier
You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t have the Caribbean on their top ten travel destinations. For those who have never visited, it looks downright heavenly. Everyone imagines themselves sipping rum with their feet in the sand or their back in a hammock. From afar, it’s simply assumed that the islands see one stunning sunset after another and a cool breeze strolls through any open patio. In short, to those who haven’t had the luck or luxury of bouncing to those islands, the Caribbean is breathtaking.
Now, for those who have actually been to the Caribbean, they know that everything above is absolutely true and there’s just so much more to explore. We’re with you. That’s why we put together a solid guide for where you and your partner, friends, or family should live it up.
