What is Your Best Caribbean Vacation?

Hi my name is Kristy and I am the Producer and CEO of this website. (I’ve always wanted to say that!) 🙂

As you can see this site has all kinds of education and helpful products to enhance your day in the sun. There isn’t a product on here that I wouldn’t purchase for myself. Heck, I am the one who chose them!

The more articles I write and the fun pictures of the beaches and tanned bodies I look at, the more I want to travel! I tease myself every time I go to this site. 🙂 With that in mind, I think it needs a little something.

I need help from you to share what is your best Caribbean destination?

I am in the process of creating content for travel destinations in the Caribbean and would like to get your feedback on where you have stayed that is your favorite. My goal is to offer special travel packages too so your comments will be greatly appreciated in choosing which islands to focus on. 🙂

Best Caribbean Destinations

The Caribbean Sea extends from the Gulf of Mexico all the way to northern South America. It has 28 island nations and over 7000 little islands in the Caribbean. So many beautiful beach destinations to choose from.

Vacations are so fun to plan and get all excited about. Possibly encourage some of us to hit the gym, work on a tan, and add a new fresh look to our wardrobe.

We research all the fun things to do in the town we will visit. Check to see if there is a festival or something culturally unique taking place when we will be visiting.

Best food in the Caribbean

Every island has its own flavor flair. That’s my favorite thing to do when traveling is try out new authentic cuisine.

chefs-640904__340.jpgCaribbean destinations are known for their Acapulco Style Ceviche cooked in fresh lime juice and the spicy authentic salsa’s that are quite different then the Tex Mex Salsa we are used to in Texas.

The guacamole in the islands isn’t smooth and creamy like in the states. It is fresh and chunky with cilantro, onions, tomatoes, and fresh lime juice. Absolutely delightful!

I remember trying conch fritters for the first time in St Thomas. They were outstanding. Now, when I visit I will put that on the list of cuisines to endure.

Best Cocktails in the Caribbean

And, of course, we can’t forget beverages! Cuisine isn’t complete without an adult beverage! Margarita’s in the Caribbean are so much better than at home! Silver agave tequila is popularly used down south and their margaritas are made with fresh lime juice, no sweet-n-sour. They are much more refreshing and absolutely amazing margaritas!drinks-2684386__340.jpg

The frozen drinks are totally different than the U.S. We use mixes that have the fruit blend in them and are very sweet. In the Caribbean, the frozen drinks are made fresh with fresh fruit and lime juice. They have the perfect amount of sweetness so it’s easy to have several, so watch out!

Best Beaches in the Caribbean

beach-hut-237489__340.jpgNow this is impossible. I don’t think there is a beach in the Caribbean that isn’t beautiful! Depending on which side of the island you are on brings a different beauty to the beach. Some sides are calm and tranquil while others are rough and rocky.

So far, my favorite beach has been in St. John, Virgin Islands. It was breathtakingly gorgeous. It looked like someone trimmed the palm trees and plants every morning. There weren’t any brown leaves on any of them. The beach was so tropical and the water was crystal clear. I will never forget the beauty!

Best Places to Scuba Dive in the Caribbean?

There are so many awesome places to scuba dive in the Caribbean. There is a large reef that extends through the islands making a plethera of underwater marine life and plants. I have dived in Cozumel and St. Thomas. My favorite is Cozumel because of the drift dive on the reef. So beautiful!

Some guests would like to stay in a resort that has more families staying at the resort. The family style resorts are more family oriented and the activities are appropriate for all ages.

Is Mexico Safe for Travel?

There is a lot to plan for your vacation so you get a good feel of your city before arriving. The more knowledgeable you are the better. And safety is always a concern. Very smart to know a little about the crime in the area. Let’s face it, every place has some kind of crime. Some more than others.

I am a native Houstonian so the Caribbean has always been one of my favorite places to travel. And the Caribbean is HUGE so there is a vast selection of travel destinations.

We keep hearing on the news that there are places in Mexico that are not safe for travel. I did an article regarding this topic. Check it out, “Is Mexico Safe to Travel to.”

  1. Whew… those are some tough questions cause Ive only been to Jamaica, Playa del carmen, Cozumel (8 times) and Cancun (5 times). It also depends on what you want. We love Cozumel for snorkeling, water and fun small town. Jamaica was amazing for the jerk chicken, Bob Marley tour and Dunns River Falls. But I think we need to venture to St Thomas, Antigua, Aruba, Caicos….

    1. I do believe you have traveled to the Caribbean a lot my friend! It’s hard to choose which is the best but I think I favor St. John because of the beauty. It’s only a 30 minute ferry ride fro St Thomas so when you go to St Thomas, check out St John. You can rent a jeep and travel around the island. It’s mostly natural forest and uninhabited which is why it’s so beautiful. There are little hidden beaches here and there.. Awesome!

      Jerk chicken in Jamaica? YUM! I have not been to Jamaica but have heard great things about it.

      I agree with you that Cozumel is the best place to in the Caribbean for scuba diving! It’s beautiful with the reef.

      Thanks for sharing Starry!

      Kristy
