Caribbean Travel – Choosing the Perfect Vacation Spot

Close your eyes and imagine a Caribbean vacation. Done? The images you called to mind probably contained pristine white beaches, aquamarine waters, and plenty of palm trees. Fortunately, the Caribbean is full of enough beautiful beaches to satisfy every traveler, but there’s much more to the islands than just beaches – which is good news for travelers who want their trip to be more than just a day at the beach.While some islands are, indeed, known for their beaches, others, like Saba, hardly have any. There’s a whole world of activities in the Caribbean; it’s just a matter of knowing where to look. Learning a bit about some of the islands can help you get a feel for the many differences you’ll find here.Basic Island DifferencesSurprisingly, weather can be quite different from island to island, as mountains, the trade winds, and even geographic location can cause some subtle and not-so-subtle differences. Islands such as Aruba are seemingly an anomaly – cacti and aloe grow more readily than fragrant hibiscus in its desert climate. Meanwhile, islands like Puerto Rico offer mountain hikes to adventure seekers, as well as cooler temperatures high in its ranges.Culture can be another important difference among islands. If you’re looking for a taste of Paris alongside a bit of tropical sunshine, turn to Martinique and the other French West Indies. Travelers can also enjoy islands where Dutch colonial style still reigns in the Netherlands Antilles, or take tea in the British West Indies. Some islands have been territories of many nations throughout their history, and the cultural mix can be delightful.Activities, though, can make or break a vacation. There are plenty of natural sights to see, both above and below the waves; mountainous peaks rise high into the sky, and historic buildings attract many visitors. Cultural festivals like the famous Carnival are also popular draws to these islands. However, when you’re looking for activities, it’s important to make the right choices.Place-by-PlaceJamaica attracts many visitors each year to its popular resort towns and beaches. Whether you’re heading to Negril, Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, Kingston, or somewhere else entirely, Jamaica has plenty of culture to offer. Golf on the grounds of a former plantation or explore its famous Blue Mountains. There’s plenty to see and do on land. And, of course, who can forget the food and crafts? Still, avid snorkelers and divers may leave this island feeling a little disappointed.Cancún is the ubiquitous spring break vacation spot for most college students. But many people don’t know that the surrounding areas have plenty to offer as well. Cancún may have gorgeous beaches and plenty of nightlife, but Cozumel offers incredible underwater sights to dazzle intrepid divers. The area known as the Mayan Riviera includes secluded spots like Playa del Carmen, which many families love, while Tulum hosts larger than life Mayan ruins.A popular spot for cruising as much as any other kind of travel, The Bahamas has plenty of popular ports and beaches, but crowds in the cities can be too much for some travelers. The Out Islands, however, are some of the most popular areas for vacationers looking to escape the crowds. Whether you’re off to see Ernest Hemingway’s Bimini, enjoying the hustle and bustle of popular cities like Freeport, or sailing and fishing between any of the islands, The Bahamas a great spot for a unique vacation not far from the Florida coast.Puerto Rico has plenty of advocates as well, since it offers travelers everything from mountain vistas to a bit of diving and snorkeling. It’s best known for its history and its rainforest. While Old San Juan is popular, visit Ponce on the southern coast for something a little different. El Yunque, the only rainforest in the U.S. National Parks system, is a good stop for nature lovers. Shopping, casinos, and nightlife are all important aspects of San Juan’s popularity, and don’t forget to spend a bit of time at one of the beaches as well.Island GroupsGet ready to sail when visiting the Virgin Islands. Whether you’re planning to stop in at the U.S. or the British islands, you’ll find crystal clear waters and plenty of sites. St. Thomas offers shopping; St. Croix features historic Dutch buildings; and St. John is home to a wildlife preserve. Snorkelers and divers will find beautiful sites in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The British Virgin Islands are much more secluded, and locals welcome vacationers with their warm smiles and British hospitality.Travelers who want another taste of something British can stop in at Barbados and have afternoon tea with the Bajan locals. Visitors to Bermuda can explore some of the cultural heritage this island retains, and stick around for a game of golf. Despite Bermuda’s distinctly non-Caribbean location, it is still considered a popular tropical location and is often grouped with other Caribbean islands. The sister islands of Antigua and Barbuda are also known for beautiful beaches and rich British history, as well as incredible sailing.Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao, known as the ABC Islands, are three of the Netherlands Antilles islands, located just north of Venezuela’s coast. With the added distinction of being outside the Caribbean’s “Hurricane Belt,” this trio of islands offers some unusual desert climates, fascinating history, and nature unlike anything you’ll find in the rest of the Caribbean.Other IslesThe Dominican Republic, St. Lucia, Saba, Belize, and Dominica are known for their natural beauty. With mountains, rivers, tropical forests, and underwater scenes to explore, these relatively untouched locales provide ecologically-oriented travelers an especially rich and diverse set of Caribbean spots to explore. Each of these islands has a different culture and intriguing aspects. Whether you’re curious about The Dominican Republic’s popular surfing beaches or St. Lucia’s famous volcanic peaks, you’re sure to find something interesting to explore.While it may be easy to visualize what some would consider a typical Caribbean island, it may take a little more effort to really pick one that is perfect for your stay. Every traveler has his or her own idea of what makes a great getaway, and building that trip is easy in the Caribbean. With just a bit of discernment, everyone can be satisfied on their vacation to the Caribbean.

Cancun – Not Just for Spring Break

For years, vacationers have been drawn to the beautiful scenery that Cancún has to offer. There is, after all, a reason why the Mexican government chose this coastal city to be its tourist flagship. Blue waters, white sands, and plenty of room for development meant that Cancún was the perfect place to draw in visitors.Image and RealityCancún’s popularity with American travelers – meaning English is widely spoken and popular chain stores and restaurants can be found there – and relatively low costs have helped it to become a haven for spring breakers, and has become better known as a party spot than the tropical escape that it was designed to be. Still, many vacationers looking for a resort location that is perfect for honeymoons or other peaceful getaways also consider Cancún.How can honeymooners mix with the out-all-night lifestyle Cancún is becoming so well-known for? The simple answer is that Cancún has come to be the name used for the entire Caribbean coast of Mexico’s Yucatán peninsula. The Yucatán peninsula contains the state of Quintana Roo, where Cancún resides. In fact, so do fascinating Mayan ruins and wide stretches of nearly untouched beaches. Cancún isn’t the only place travelers may choose to visit in the Mexican Caribbean.Plenty of Places to GoCozumel, an island off the coast of Mexico, is home to a small city and an airport. You’ll also find plenty of world-class snorkeling and diving on the world’s second largest reef. Mayans held this island as the sacred home of the fertility goddess Ixchel, and it now houses ruins for visitors to explore. Isla Mujeres is another popular island just miles away from Cancún in the Caribbean Sea; you’ll find the ruins of many Spanish galleons sunk just off its coast.The ruins at Tulum are some of the most famous in Mexico. Here travelers can see a holy Mayan city and visit “The Castle.” This fortress is built on a bluff overlooking the ocean, offering spectacular sights for visitors willing to take the trip. Unlike the hustle and bustle of Cancún, this area is a haven for backpackers and ecologically-oriented travelers.Those looking for something upscale and secluded, on the other hand, may want to consider the area known as the Mayan Riviera. It’s called by several variations of this name, such as the Riviera Maya, and stretches along the coast from Cancún to Tulum. Areas like Playa del Carmen are a part of this beautiful coastline. Rental villas with private slices of beach, rather than sprawling hotel and resort complexes, line the shores here. Some areas of the Mayan Riviera, such as Xel Ha and Akumal, are also known for their eco-tourism opportunities.So while it’s easy to see why students may enjoy the wilder side in the city of Cancún, it’s not difficult to understand how travelers can find the perfect honeymoon escape and family travel in the area as well. Mexico’s Caribbean coast has much more to offer than just Cancún, though the city has become a figurehead for its tourism.

Hawaii Beaches

On every island in Hawaii, beaches abound. Whether it is swimming, snorkeling or surfing there are so many choices.On Big Island, at least 23 beaches are available to the public, and all share the same pristine coastline. Winter months are usually better times to visit if you’re interested in surfing and going for some really extensive, fun swimming. For example, Mahaiula Beach on the Kona Coast is spectacular.You want to see white-white sand? Here’s the place to go. The beach is within Kekaha Kai State Park, which also offers lovely views and “introduces” you to the exotic beauty of the island before you actually get to the beach! You can also swim, snorkel, and boogie-board the day away in the summer months. As all of the beaches are unique, the summit of Puu Kuili, a 342-foot-high cinder cone, offers an excellent view of Big Island’s coastline. Beyond the bay, you can scuba dive and explore the underwater tunnels and caves — even a sunken ship!On the island of Kauai, Salt Pond County Beach Park, in Puolo Point, is just one of about 33 beaches on this island. It’s next to the only functioning salt ponds in the entire Hawaiian Islands — where an ancient Hawaiian art of making rock salt by evaporating the seawater is still going on. You certainly won’t find anything remotely like this anywhere else on earth.Swimming conditions are normally safe on this island, except during periods of high surf. Kauai offers good snorkeling areas, and surfing and windsurfing are very popular here as well. Lifeguards are available on some of the beaches, but not all — make sure you check before you head out. The best times of the year to try out these beaches is from mid-May to September, but remember to watch out for those heavy, high surfs and even riptides.On Maui, Makena State Park in the south part of the island is nicknamed “Big Beach,” perhaps because it’s more than a half-mile long and 100 feet wide! Considering the size of the island, that would definitely classify this beach as pretty “big!” It’s actually one of the most popular beaches on Maui, and it is manned by lifeguards, but no body boarding is allowed, and be aware: there are some dangerous shore

breaks.. Plus, there are more than 20 other beaches, most of which are best visited from September to April.Makaha Beach Park on Oahu is a board surfer’s paradise. International board-surfing competitions have even been held here, and waves can climb up to 25 feet in the winter months, the best time to visit Oahu’s beaches, unless, of course, you’re more interested in swimming or snorkeling, in which case you’d want to make your trip reservations in the summer. Scuba divers will enjoy the Makaha Caves, a series of underwater “housing,” complete with arches, caverns, and awe-inspiring natural formations.Beach access in Hawaii and information regarding access are generally good, and the state actually recognizes surfing areas as valuable recreational, economic, and cultural resources. Hawaii has approximately one public beach access site per mile of shoreline.

Traveling During Hurricane Season

Many vacationers look forward to traveling during the

summer months to the Caribbean, Florida and vacation

resorts along the Gulf of Mexico.While the late spring and summer offer tremendous

travel bargains, these months also correspond with the

start of the hurricane season. Recently there has been

an increase of travel in the “off peak” months of July

and August, when many families have the opportunity to

get away on vacation. This year in particular, many

potential vacationers have been unsure whether to plan

a vacation in the areas mentioned above.The people of the Caribbean sum up hurricane season

with the following saying: June – Too Soon; July –

Stand By; August – Look Out You Must; September –

Remember; October – All Over.
What you need to understand about the nature of the

current hurricane patterns
The experts agree the rise in the number of hurricanes

in the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico are likely to

continue. Most of the experts in this field believe

global warming is responsible for the fuel that turned

Katrina from a slow moving tropical storm into one of

the most deadly hurricanes in U.S. history. The water

temperature in the Gulf was higher than normal, and

whether you believe in global warming or not, the

facts are the Caribbean and Gulf regions will be

dealing with more active hurricanes for at least the

next 15 years.First of all, we usually think of hurricanes as highly

destructive wind storms, but it is the water that

kills people, animals and vegetation. It’s the storm

surge that produces flooding, such as what happened

in New Orleans, and storm surges produced the deadly

mudslides in the Caribbean island of Haiti last

summer.Currently the Caribbean/Atlantic hurricane season

starts officially on June 1 and ends on November 30.

Hurricanes are uncommon in June, early July and

November, and the peak months are August, September

and October. But changes in the world’s climate

indicate that hurricane season could be extended to

include May and December. In the coming years, July

and November could be seen as peak months. The good

news is that tropical storms that develop at either

end of the season are usually weak.Can you find a “storm free” vacation during the summer

Most hurricanes form over the North Atlantic, coming

off the coast of Africa. They then head in a westerly

direction towards the Caribbean, then usually turn

north towards the U.S. coast. Some of the storms may

turn northwards in the open waters of the Atlantic

before reaching the islands of the Caribbean.The islands of Trinidad and Tobago are located beyond

the southern end of the Windward Island chain, and

these two islands experience much less storms than in

the islands that lie further north. Barbados has also

been lucky in that the island has not experienced a

direct hit in over 20 years. The ABC islands of Aruba,

Bonaire and Curacao, are also located outside of the

usual hurricane belt, along with Margarita Island,

which is located just off the coast of Venezuela. The

Seychelle islands in the Indian Ocean have escaped

tropical storms by the close proximity to the Equator.While the islands listed above have not seen recent

hurricane damage, there is no guarantee these islands

will always be completely safe during hurricane

season. However the chance of running into a hurricane

is actually very small – millions of people travel to

these areas and enjoy a wonderful tropical vacation.Since 1995, the Atlantic hurricane season has been

above normal, which means more storm activity. From

1970 to 1994, the activity was below normal, and these

cycles come in 20 + year spans. So we will be dealing

with more active hurricane seasons for quite a few

years.What to do if you are caught in a hurricaneHurricanes do not come up suddenly, and there is at

least a 3 day warning on a specific, direct hit. Most

vacationers immediately leave their vacation spot when

threatened with a hurricane, however some will choose

to ride it out, or fail to realize there will be no

flights to get them out at the last minute if they

finally decide to leave.When a hurricane approaches the first thing you need

to do is move far away from beach areas to avoid the

storm surge. Hurricanes season is nothing new to

Caribbean islanders, and many have dealt with plenty

of hurricanes before. The only advice that can be

given is to follow the directions of local officials,

and evacuate to the nearest storm shelter or

designated facility.The most damaging winds of the hurricane are found

within a 50-100 mile radius of the storms eye.

Normally an island in the path of a hurricane will

experience a day or two of normal activity – depending

on the intensity of the storm.Tropical storms in other regions of the worldTropical storms always occur in oceanic basins inside

the tropics. The only difference is we call these

storms by different names.In the Atlantic/Caribbean, Pacific cost of Mexico we

call these storms hurricanes. In the north-west

Pacific region around Taiwan, Japan and the

Philippines, these storms are called typhoons, and

cyclones are the name given around Australia and in

the Indian Ocean. No matter what you call these storms

around the world, they are in essence the same thing.No one can be promised a “storm free” vacation during

hurricane season.
Here’s a few important things we advise travelers to think about . . .(1) Travelers booking vacations on their own need to

be better informed about hurricane season, and the

particular locations safety policies and procedures.

Working with a travel professional can definitely be

an advantage if you need to change travel plans, or be

advised of safety information prior to your trip. If

you decide to book at one of the online travel sites,

you cannot expect to get much assistance in an

emergency.(2) Take a look at travel insurance policies. There

are many policies to fit any vacationers needs, and we

suggest you read the fine print to make sure what is

covered, and what is not. If you cannot afford to lose

the money you invested in your trip, you need to

purchase travel insurance.The purchase of travel insurance policies have doubled

over the past few years, and the major cancellation

reasons are illness, death and weather related. Most

policies are over 10 pages, and you can ask for a

policy interpretation if you do not fully understand

what the policy covers.(3) Take advantage of Last Minute Vacation Packages.

Not only can you save a bundle, there will be no

chance of getting caught in a tropical storm or

hurricane activity since there is plenty of advance

warning. Last minute vacations are available within 14

days of travel.(4) Always use a credit card for travel purchases. You

can always file a claim with your credit card company

for services or goods that you have not received.Using debit cards can be tricky since the actual funds

have already been taken from your account. With a

credit card, a hold is often put on your account

before the actual charge appears. This same hold can

turn up on your bank account. In other words, a charge

can show up twice on your bank account. A hold can

stay on your account for up to a week in some cases.

Once the “hold” falls off, you will have access to

that money, however in the meantime, you may find

yourself without available funds.
