Holidays to Caribbean Islands

Even though the Caribbean Islands tend to get lumped together, each island varies greatly from the next in terms of food, culture, temperature, language, laws and even currency. Each of the Caribbean Islands has its own unique features and attractions.

Holidays in the Caribbean Islands will see travellers choosing from a large assortment of cities, quaint villages and islands. There are approximately 40 places that make up what is referred to as the Caribbean Islands.

Aruba is one of the most popular of choices for its white sandy beaches, fast windsurfing, extensive shopping and Arikok National Park. For those seeking beaches, holidays in the Antigua and Barbuda region of the Caribbean Islands will guarantee more than 365 of them. This area is literally a beach haven dotted with historical landmarks and resorts.

Jamaica is the land of reggae and the famous Dunn River Falls. Here you can take a trip to a coffee plantation or visit the Bob Marley museum in New Kingston. The island of Honduras has spectacular jungles, offshore islands, mountains and Garifuna people, a stark contrast to Jamaica. The U.S. Virgin Islands are a popular resort choice as they are comprised of three separate islands, St. Croix, St. Thomas and St. John. The British Virgin Islands are world-renowned as the sailing capital of the Caribbean and this area provides most of its activities and resorts on the islands of Virgin Gorda and Tortola.

Divers can enjoy the activity in waters around the three Cayman Islands as well as Cozumel, Saba, the Mexican Caribbean and the capital shore of diving, Bonaire. Nature lovers will no doubt enjoy holidays in the Caribbean Islands, which should include the Grenadines, St. Kitts, Carib Indian Reserve, St. Vincent, Belize and the Dominica.

For those wishing for a little bit of adventure on their Caribbean Island holidays, as well as sightseeing and relaxation, then there is the choice of the Bahamas, (specifically Cancun, Turks and Caicos), New Providence and Grand Bahama Island, St. Maarten, Grenada, Bermuda, Nevis, the Dominican Republic, St. Lucia, Puerto Rico, Guadeloupe, St. Barthelemy, Curacao and Trinidad.

Weather

Each of the Caribbean Island areas has its own distinctive weather pattern but there really is no bad time to visit any of these. The climate is naturally beautiful all year round with consistently moderate temperatures and very little seasonal variation. Trade winds add a welcome sea breeze to the islands that tend to come from the northeast, which help calm the heat from the sun and make for pleasant temperatures for those taking holidays to the Caribbean Islands.

Currency

Each of the Caribbean Islands has its own form of currency, so the currency for your holidays in the Caribbean Islands will depend on your destination. The Mexican Caribbean uses the Peso whereas Guadeloupe uses the Euro, and Puerto Rico, along with the U.S. Virgin Islands, uses the U.S. Dollar.
