The Caribbean islands have been captivating travellers for centuries. One million square miles of indescribably idyllic islands, powder sand paradises and perpetual sunshine.
These islands justifiably continue to be considered among the world’s most perfect destinations with some of the best diving reefs in the world, lush rainforests and dramatic volcanic landscapes.
This seemingly endless choice of topical and sub tropical islands spands from the Bahamas archipelago on the far eastern fringes to Trinidad with its mangrove swamps and birdsong filled mountains overlooking the coast of Venezuela
Rich with adventurous tales, mixed cultures and astonishing natural diversity, the region’s history is still evident today, not least in its cuisine – a heady mix of French, Spanish, Dutch and British influences and glorious colonial architecture which seems to highlight the simple charm of traditional Caribbean pastel coloured homes.
