You don't have to have a lot of time to have a great time in the Caribbean.
There's Grenada for the spices; Barbados for the British pubs and Trafalgar Square; San Juan for the narrow, cobbled streets; St. Maarten for a combination of French and Dutch influences and St. Thomas for the fabulous duty-free shopping.
Great beaches can be found from Ocho Rios and Grand Cayman to Cozumel. And islands like St. Lucia, Dominica, and St. Kitts offer scenery so breathtaking, you'll feel as though you've found heaven on earth.
Special adventures like the St. Maarten's America's Cup sailing regatta which lets you be one of the crew, the Tulum, Lost Mayan Civilization journey into the past, and rafting on the Martha Brae River in Jamaica make your vacation complete.
Southern Caribbean: Castries, St. Lucia’s fiery origins are pretty obvious when you see the Pitons, the famous twin lava cones that rise steeply out of the sea. Be sure to visit the world’s only drive-in volcano! St. John’s, Antigua prides itself on being the yachting capital of the Caribbean. Another attraction with sailing lore is English Harbour, where Admiral Nelson created the largest navy base in the Caribbean. Basseterre, St. Kitts was considered the British mother colony of the Caribbean. At the infamous Brimstone Hill, learn about the endless colonial wars between the French and the British. St. Croix, Crumbling fortresses remind you of a time two centuries ago when St. Croix was a bustling colony of the Kingdom of Denmark. Today, its glorious beaches have brought the island to life again. St. Thomas, The turquoise waters around St. Thomas hold as many treasures as its duty-free shops. A visit to Coral World will show you an underwater wonderland. Or glide in a submarine to even deeper worlds. Dive a wreck off of Buck Island, or sail a catamaran to St. John.
