What to Expect on Caribbean Vacations
By What Aleshia Green
Home to more than 7000 islands, the Caribbean Sea is located southeast of the United States and Mexico, and north of South America. These islands are comprised of sandy beaches and coral reefs, making this a prime destination for vacationers. Vacationing in the Caribbean requires making a tough decision before departure, because of the large number of vacation destinations available. From Bermuda in the northern Caribbean to Barbados in the southern Caribbean, there are almost more islands than you could ever visit in a lifetime. The friendly nature of residents and a booming tourism industry ensure that a vacation to the Caribbean will delight any traveler.
Originally territories of the United States and European nations, a variety of languages, cultures and cuisines can be found when traveling to the Caribbean islands. While geographically close together, the islands boast remarkable diversity of geography and ecosystems. From tropical rain forests to cactus deserts, each island is uniquely different. Early visitors to the Caribbean traveled according to their nationality and language, because arduous sea travel necessitated long stays on the islands. But those barriers no longer exist for modern travelers, who are able to quickly and easily reach the Caribbean from the east coast of the United States or by cruise ship. Millions of tourists visit the Caribbean each year to enjoy the warm weather, beautiful beaches and relaxed atmosphere. The postcard image of white sandy beaches, clear blue water, palm trees and tropical beverages is a reality in the Caribbean.
With so many islands in the Caribbean, niche markets have developed for those wishing to vacation in this paradise. Islands have now become known for being more family friendly, better for couples, golf, diving or seniors. One popular vacation choice while in the Caribbean is the all-inclusive resort. These resorts literally provide everything the traveler could require while on vacation, without ever needing to leave the resort. For one flat rate, the traveler's meals, drinks, activities and more are provided at the resort, providing a relaxing environment in which vacationers simply need to lie back and enjoy. From scuba diving to golf, these resorts are literally mini-cities, providing all the amenities, goods and services that a traveler could want while in the Caribbean. For travelers vacationing with children, these resorts even provide full service childcare, ensuring that even mom and dad have a few days of rest and relaxation, knowing that their children are cared for and entertained.
