Eight must-see Caribbean countries for 2019

Every year we struggle to find a vacation destination. As the Christmas holiday draws close, BUZZ highlights eight Caribbean destinations for the perfect vacation experience.

Jamaica

Is there anything better than sun, white sandy beaches and jerk chicken? The island of land, wood and water is the perfect paradise to escape to and to find adventures. Not to mention our world-famous music. Kingston is perfect for the nightlife, Montego Bay is perfect for snorkelling and shopping, while the spas of Ocho Rios, St Ann, can make any stresses melt away. Jamaica is the perfect island to visit.

Puerto Rico

The Spanish-speaking island is a perfect balance of rum and tranquillity. San Jun is also a good city for shopping, sight-seeing and picture-taking for you selfie queen. Hike the massive El Yunque rainforest to see waterfalls, stone towers, and colourful wildlife. As far as beaches go, the sands of Isla de Vieques – particularly Mosquito Bay where the moonlight causes the water to glow blue-green – are just magical.

Aruba

This is the quintessential Caribbean island of sun and white sandy beaches. If you should do snorkelling and flutter serenely underwater, you could definitely see the parrotfish. Relax and enjoy the shade of an Eagle Beach Divi-Divi tree while the crashing waves create a soothing soundtrack just for you.

Barbados 

The land of romance, adventure and music star Rihanna (for you Riri lovers). To the west of Barbados, you’ll find calmer waters, a place for a good swim. To the east, there are massive waves, a good destination for surfing. Point is, wherever you stay, expect turquoise waters and soft sand beaches.

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic 

A Tiger Woods destination for you golf lovers. Punta Cana is the definition of leisure. The beaches are beautiful: calm, warm and gentle water that makes its way onto the white, fine sand. Get that adrenaline rush with a zipline adventure, get involved with the traditional Dominican music or just explore the magical blue lagoons of the Indigenous Eyes of Ecological Park.

Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands

The further you go from the busy docks of Grand Cayman, the more peace and quiet you’ll find. Go to the famous Sandbar (Stingray City) where stingrays swim alongside the bar. However, closer to the town area, is where the best massages and spa services are.

St Lucia

Have you ever seen a volcano? In St Lucia, going for a casual drive you would definitely end up inside of a volcano. La Soufrière is one of the most popular attractions in St Lucia. Pack your luggage and get ready for the medicinal mud of Sulfur Springs. Continue your adventures with a hike of the two volcanoes known as the Pitons then go up to the Morne Fortune, to get a desirable view. For an intimate beach experience, go over to the private black sands of Anse Mamin.

Providenciales, Turks and Caicos

Providenciales is the most populated of the Turks and Caicos. Alongside Jamaica, Providenciales has one of the world’s top beach destinations. Definitely go diving and snorkelling, get that underwater experience. And yes, Chalk Sound is perfect for kayaking.

Come spend you vacation with us and experience the of what the world has to offer.
