Caribbean Hotels - A Place to relax, unwind and soak in the sun
By Terrance Richardson
The Caribbean is one of the best places in the world for a vacation. It has beautiful beaches, azure waters, and pleasant climate. The Caribbean Sea draws millions of visitors each year to its sun kissed shores. This combination of perfect temperature, white sand, warm waters and friendly natives with their exotic dishes and lilting speech creates an atmosphere that is hard to beat. For many it creates a level of relaxation that makes it possible to endure the hustle and bustle of their home nations because they know that soon, soon, they will return to the peace warmth and tranquility of the Caribbean.
The Caribbean is the ideal place for a family holiday. There is so much to see and do. The Caribbean bears the hallmarks of several ancient cultures. There are artifacts from the Caribs and Arawacks who peopled the islands before the arrival of the Europeans. The Spanish, French, English and Dutch have also left their mark. There are old forts and colonial era churches to visit. There are old buildings built in the classic European style. Colonial era Europe lives in the dress, language and lifestyle of the Caribbean. Caribbean explorers and pirates have bays and coves named after them and their tales are still told as though they happened yesterday.
Grenada hotels house echoes of the past. You can almost hear whispers of Sir Walter Raleigh and Sir Francis Drake as you roam the hotels or ease into blissful sleep. Washer women and school children in brightly colored uniforms still people the island. You can sit in your Grenada hotel and sip on coconut water as you wait for your breakfast of British tea and fresh baked bread smothered with home-made guava jelly. You can explore the island and inhale deeply the spices that give the country its nick name, the Isle of Spice. You can take a boat ride to the Grenadines, the islands just off Grenada's main island.
Barbados is another story altogether. The island known as 'Little England', is all manners and prim and proper behavior. Barbados hotels require decorum. There is much fun to be had and spiced rum to drink but hooligans are frowned upon. They insist on good, clean fun. At midday you can sit in the shade of a coconut tree and eat your flying fish and coo coo and thank your lucky stars for a Caribbean holiday.
