The Best of the Caribbean

LuxeGetaways - - Editor’s Note - By Da­mon M. Banks

The Caribbean is al­ways a fa­vorite get­away, and with a va­ri­ety of op­tions to­day, the is­lands are an

eas­ily ob­tain­able va­ca­tion for all bud­gets.

The Caribbean is al­ways a fa­vorite va­ca­tion get­away for many trav­el­ers due to the in­cred­i­ble di­ver­sity of ac­com­mo­da­tions, ac­tiv­i­ties and over­all lo­cal­ized travel and culi­nary ex­pe­ri­ences wait­ing to be dis­cov­ered among the is­lands. In most cases, the lo­cals are gen­uinely hos­pitable and ex­tremely ea­ger to make sure that tourists have the op­por­tu­nity to get to know their home, and come to love their is­land.

There is no deny­ing that a num­ber of po­ten­tial tourists have elected to travel else­where in re­cent months with the on­go­ing drama sur­round­ing Puerto Rico’s eco­nomic tur­moil, and of course, the fear of be­ing in­fected with the Zika Virus. How­ever, for those in North Amer­ica who de­sire that quin­tes­sen­tial is­land get­away that is still only a rel­a­tively short plane ride away for many, the Caribbean is­lands are a per­fect so­lu­tion. In the case of th­ese trav­el­ers, the sandy beaches, steel drums, frozen cock­tails and end­less sun­shine awaits.

Re­gard­less of your bud­get or needs for the per­fect get­away, you can more than likely find a way to make it work when in the Caribbean. From an ex­pan­sive pri­vate villa on a se­cluded beach de­signed for the most dis­cern­ing of guests, to a mod­er­ately priced ho­tel room in Puerto Rico or St. Maarten, the Caribbean’s peo­ple and un­mis­tak­able is­land flair will make it a visit not to be for­got­ten.

For those look­ing for a way to bal­ance lux­u­ries with mod­er­a­tion, it is easy to com­bine a few days in Old San Juan in Puerto Rico be­fore driv­ing east for sev­eral days at one of the lux­ury re­sorts along the beau­ti­ful beaches; or be­gin with sev­eral days in St. Maarten for some qual­ity time shop­ping and ex­plor­ing the ex­cit­ing is­land life fol­lowed by a few days of re­lax­ation and bliss in An­guilla. Ob­tain­able lux­u­ries are easy to dis­cover through­out the Caribbean.
