Curious about the Caribbean
Collected by Andi Fisher , AFAR Local Expert
I don't know much about this area of the world, all my visits have been via cruise boats, I know there is more to these islands than what I can see in an afternoon, so I am curious...
Cabarete 57000, Dominican Republic
Velero is a relatively small resort sporting just 60 rooms ranging in size from 50 to 200 square meters. All rooms feature direct views of the ocean, plus all the amenities you’d expect: central air, internet access, cable TV, etc. To be sure, my...
Fort-de-France Bay, Martinique
Few things give you the kick needed to continue exploring the tropical city of Fort-de-France like a fresh cup of sugarcane juice! Luckily, it's easy to stumble across presses squeezing out this potent fluid throughout the city's back roads....
The Boardwalk Main Road, Highway 7, Bridgetown, Barbados
On my most recent visit, I arrived at Tapas just after the lunch rush. The hustle and bustle had just died down — leaving me and my traveling companions free to enjoy the sounds of the waves coming ashore just beyond the dining room and more...
Enterprise Coast Road, Oistins, Barbados, Barbados
One of the best spots in the Caribbean for surfing is Barbados. And if you're not one of the best surfers in the world (like me), one of the best breaks on the island to catch some waves has got to be Freights Bay. The added bonus is that most...
Henrys, Bridgetown, Barbados
There's simply no better place to get Caribbean spiny lobster on Barbados than Lobster Alive. Fact. Why? Because practically every lobster sold in every restaurant on the island comes through this one unassuming location. The problem is that due...
Pointe Thalémont, Le François, Martinique 97240
Plein Soleil has only 16 guestrooms and suites spread among five colourful villas. Each villa is designed in the style of traditional Martinican creole cases, or petite houses adorned with wooden fretwork. Just beautiful... But they have tough...
Flavors of San Juan Food and Culture Tours is a great way to learn about the history and culture of the island while also sampling delicious Puerto Rican food. My favorite things about the tour: history, culture, and best of all food!
Val Des Pitons Forbidden Beach La Baie de Silence, St Lucia
Sugar Beach Viceroy Resort is one of those dreamy beach havens where luxury is standard. Overall the best hotel on the island of St.Lucia for amenities, location, activities and dining options. Driving along the jagged roads of St. Lucia, from the...
27122 Goal Street, Dunmore Town, The Bahamas
A perfect beach counterpart to my other favorite place on Harbour Island (The Landing) is The Dunmore. I immediately felt home. The Dunmore is relaxed, low key and true to its surroundings. They only have 16 cottages, all well designed, in a...
West End, The Bahamas
Gorgeous exclusive-use villa on Grand Bahama's West End. It was great crashing here for a few days while exploring the island's overlooked national parks and pristine beaches. The local delicacies - conch fritters!! - prepared by the chefs were...
Hip Strip, Montego Bay, Jamaica
If you've ever been to Jamaica (or know any Jamaicans) chances are you've heard of patties - if not tasted them. Jamaicans LOVE patties. Beef patty, chicken patty, lobster patty, veggie patty. Any patty will do. Its about the cheapest meal on the...
The Caribbean is a destination for all types of travelers—scuba divers, sailors, sunbathers—but when you want a dash of European party to season your vacation, head to St. Barth's, often called the St. Tropez of the Caribbean. Around St. Barth's...
Debreuil, St Lucia
For anyone visiting St. Lucia who may have an aversion to run-of-the-mill hotels and an inclination toward the adventurous, consider a stay at Balenbouche Estate. Located on the southern end of the island near Laborie, the guest houses and...
Anguilla has more than 30 powdery white sand beaches, sophisticated dining, fun bars. A recent welcome addition on this island is "Las EsQuinas". A luxury B&B that is not only stylish with its architectural details, walkways and bridges to the...
Lower Bight Rd, The Bight Settlement TKCA 1ZZ, Turks and Caicos Islands
I was just in Turks and Caicos recently, and shot some work at Beaches Resort, part of Sandals. I must say I'm not big on all inclusive places but beaches was amazing for families and kids. beautiful, safe, organized with a ton of cool activities...
Lemon Arbour, Barbados
Lemon Arbour began as just another one of the many rum shops that can be found all over Barbados, but as its reputation for spectacular local dishes grew, so did the actual shop. Now, Lemon Arbor has become the place to go on Saturdays for an...
Pigeon Point Rd, Trinidad and Tobago
Sure, it's one of the more touristy destinations on the small island of Tobago, but sometimes you don't have to go off the beaten path to enjoy sensational sundowners in the West Indies. You don't even need to go into the pay area of the beach....
Grace Bay Rd, Grace Bay TKCA 1ZZ, Turks and Caicos Islands
I've been to a few beaches, and I have to say I haven't seen any that compare to the cliche-ridden soft, golden sands of Grace Bay in the Turks and Caicos. Not only do you get a view of those gorgeous "turquoise" waters but you also feel like you...
Gasparito 3 Noord, Noord, Aruba
Authentic Aruban cuisine and art are both on the menu at this unique eatery. Keshi Yena, Kerry Kerry, and Goat Stoba are just a few of the goodies served amid a warm, family-style setting and whimsical art created by Gasparito’s own in-house...
