Caribbean vacation

You can’t go wrong with a Caribbean vacation escape. But with so many islands to choose from, you might need a little guidance to help decide which one to visit. Whether you’re a nature lover, sun seeker, adventurer, foodie (or a little of all), discover what top destinations like Aruba, the Bahamas, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, St. Lucia, and Turks and Caicos have to offer.



Jamaica Blue Mountain

Home of reggae and Jerk seasoning, you’ll soon discover rhythm and spice are a way of life in Jamaica. Whether you are relaxing on one of the gorgeous beaches or sipping some of the best Jamaican coffee in Negril, teeing off on a picturesque golf course or exploring the Blue Mountain national park, you are never too far from the smoky aroma of barbecue pits serving up the most delicious slow-cooked treats.

Best for: foodies, culture seekers, and adventurers


St. Lucia

St Lucia

Romance and Creole cuisine go hand-in-hand at this top honeymoon destination. Here, palm-fringed beaches overlook the perfect horizon, the crystal-clear waters are perfect for swimming, diving and yachting, and the iconic Piton Mountains for hiking. Join the Friday night “jump ups” when the streets along Gros Islet come alive with a mishmash of food, drink, music, and dancing. We recommend local favorites like barbecued seafood and blackened corn on the cob.

With an average year-round temperature of 82° and more sunny days than any other island in the Caribbean, any time is a good time to visit Aruba. Add to it beautiful beaches, world-class resorts, shopping malls, and restaurants, and you have the perfect vacation destination to kick back and relax. Looking for some adventure? Activities like deep-sea diving, windsurfing, kite surfing, championship golf, and even horseback riding along the beach are some of the options.

Dominican Republic

With 600 miles of white-sand beaches shaded by palm trees, rocky cliffs, serene lagoons, cascading waterfalls, small villages, and vibrant, carnival-celebrating cities, there’s plenty to see and do on a Dominican Republic vacation. Sail on a catamaran to the Miches Natural Reserve, eat lunch at local restaurant, and go sightseeing in a 16th century replica of a Mediterranean village (Altos de Chavon). Or feel free to simply swim, relax, and get indulgently pampered at one of the luxurious all-inclusive resorts.

Turks & Caicos

Turks & Caicos

Turks & Caicos is all about classic Caribbean charm, thanks to picture-perfect beaches, turquoise waters, world-class resorts, spectacular coral reefs, and unhurried hospitality.. A relatively under-the-radar destination, just eight of the 40 islands and cays are inhabited, leaving plenty of undiscovered nooks for you to explore. The smaller islands offer a perfect getaway for couples, while the main island, Providenciales (nicknamed Provo) is family-friendly with waters that are ideal for all types of swimmers.

Best for: beach vacationers, divers, and nature lovers


The Bahamas


A vacation in The Bahamas can be either fun-filled and action-packed or as exclusive and restful as desired (or a perfect balance of both). From island-hopping, diving, and swimming with dolphins to fine dining, golfing and indulging in world-class spas, you get to pick your perfect paradise. Whether you visit Grand Bahama Island or Nassau, Paradise Island, this string of stunning 700 islands off the east coast of Florida offer something for everyone

Best for: foodies, divers, sun seekers, nature lovers, and island-hopping adventurers.
