Are you planning a vacation somewhere in the Caribbean? Whether you are planning a trip sooner or later, there are certain places you need to be sure to visit. Check out these five countries in the Caribbean that are a must on your visit list.
The gorgeous little island of Aruba is a must if you are visiting the Caribbean. It’s ideal for families, honeymooners, even weddings. With plenty of modern accommodations and attractions that shouldn’t be missed, Aruba should be on your list to visit. While in Aruba, you can tour the island by bus, go snorkeling and sailing, take a bar hopping tour of the island’s nighttime hot spots, enjoy an underwater tour around the island or go diving.
Sunshine and paradise may be two words that can describe Saint-Martin. This Caribbean island is definitely worth a visit. You can explore the hills by horseback or enjoy a zip line adventure. The beaches are covered with powdery, white sand that must be seen. The turquoise waters that surround the island are breathtaking, and if you want, you can jump right in to swim or take part in a diving tour to see the underwater features around the island. You may be treated to an afternoon rain shower that will alleviate the heat of the day but will certainly not deter the experience you will have while visiting Saint-Martin.
The Bahamas is actually a series of islands and cays located north of Cuba and Hispaniola in the Atlantic Ocean. While not technically located in the Caribbean Sea, the Bahamas are considered a Caribbean nation. With more than 700 islands and cays as part of the nation, there are plenty of sites to see and enjoy. Nassau may be the most popular, but there are plenty of other sites to visit and things to do. From boating, to beaches, to diving tours, you can choose fun activities for the whole family or for just yourself or for you and a friend. If it’s nature exploration you are after, you can bet that you will find plenty to do if you visit the Bahamas.
