We all have an image of the Caribbean in our heads - sun drenched beaches, coconut trees, and lazy days filled with cocktails and swimming in the sea. And while this is certainly one side of the Caribbean, and one that thousands of people see and love every year, there is even more to do in this tropical paradise, with something to suit all tastes. Here is just a taster of the different kinds of holiday you could have on a Caribbean island.
This is the classic Caribbean holiday - lying in the sun all day, with an occasional trip into the sea. The ultimate relaxing holiday that lets you soak in Caribbean atmosphere at your own pace. There are hundreds of resorts across every island in the Caribbean, from Barbados to Jamaica that will help you plan your quiet, relaxing holiday.
If you want to be slightly more active in your travels to the Caribbean, Cuba is just the place. Take the time to enjoy the old quarter of Havana and take in the unique culture and atmosphere of Cuba, with music and nightlife to suit everyone and plenty of cultural sites. Once you've seen enough of the city, take a trip out to the countryside to see Cuban life on the surrounding farms, and the astounding natural beauty of the island.
The Caribbean is famed worldwide for its many exquisite diving sites and reefs. The island of Grenada is one of the best places in the world for diving, whether you are an absolute novice, or a seasoned diver. There are over 30 sites, all with dazzlingly clear, warm tropical water and incredible sights. Many tour operators run specific diving holidays on Grenada, and it is well worth looking into if you think diving could be your thing.
Another typical image many people have of the Caribbean is a cruise holiday. This can be great for people wanting to take a relaxed look at many of the beautiful and spectacular islands of the area, as well as to meet new people. Again, there are hundreds of possible cruises across the Caribbean, and if you are interested, you are bound to find one to suit your taste and pocket.
Puerto Rico Nightlife
For the younger (or younger at heart!), Puerto Rico, and particularly its capital, San Juan, offers a vibrant night life to complement the island's beautiful white beaches, along with a different kind of Caribbean holiday. The city itself is very old, founded in the 16th century, offering plenty to do in the day before you check out the Caribbean night life in the evening, if lying on beaches isn't your thing.
