Welcome to the Caribbean.
If you are interested in a trip to the Caribbean, you’ve come to the right place. While most people
have an idea of what the ideal Caribbean vacation entails, that idea can be very different from one
person to the next. Below are some common questions to consider at the beginning of the process.
Before we start to plan, take some time to think about what details are most important to you. While
most destinations will meet most criteria, if something is exceptionally important to you, we should
discuss that in the beginning.
All-Inclusive vs. Non-Inclusive? Do you want your resort to include your meals and beverages, or do you prefer to do your own cooking or explore your destination’s culinary scene?
Flat island vs. mountainous island? Do you want to lay on a white sand beach that could be
taken from a computer wallpaper, or do you want to hike, zipline, and explore a more mountainous
Ease of travel vs. travel adventure? Do you want a destination with nonstop air service from your
area, or are you willing to take a small plane or ferry to reach your destination?
Let's get started!
The Caribbean region is very small, but each destination has its own unique personality, avail-
able activities, and accommodations. The options below are some of my favorites, and some
