The Caribbean has long been one of the premier vacation destinations for American travelers. Only a short trip from the mainland, there are hundreds of islands with all inclusive resorts catering to a wide array of different vacation-goers. Among the most popular destinations in the Caribbean are the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Jamaica, Bavaro, Puerto Rico, Aruba, St. Lucia, Barbados, and Antigua among many others.
Rich in story and dating back hundreds of years, each of the Caribbean islands offers a wealth of traditions and landscapes - from the sweeping white sand beaches of Jamaica to the rain forests of the Dominican and the soaring peaks of dormant volcanoes dotting the sea. Perfect for honeymooners, families seeking a warm weather getaway in the heart of winter, or spring breakers, the Caribbean offers something for everyone, regardless of how often you travel.
With more than 7,000 islands (700 of which are inhabited), the Caribbean is as diverse as it is beautiful. You can still visit the colonial landmarks of the 17th century in St Vincent or the largely untouched natural majesty of St Lucia. Every island is home to a unique blend of culture drawing from local and international influences dating back centuries.
