But as you’ll dis­cover in this ex­cit­ing edi­tion of Your guide to the Caribbean, not only are we open for busi­ness, we’re re­build­ing to make sure we come back stronger than ever. We’re proud of our multi-faceted of­fer­ing, in­clud­ing the world-beat­ing beaches of Turks & Caicos, the nat­u­ral beauty of Mar­tinique’s jun­gle-cloaked vol­ca­noes, Guyana’s tum­bling wa­ter­falls and the Span­ish colo­nial streets of Puerto Rico. Else­where, a liv­ing his­tory les­son awaits on is­lands like Cu­raçao and Ja­maica, and at our UNESCO World Her­itage Sites – 22 and count­ing. Af­ter read­ing this guide’s stock of in­sider tips you cer­tainly won’t be stuck for ideas on what to do in the re­gion, whether that’s learn­ing the lat­est dance moves in a car­ni­val road march, look­ing af­ter en­dan­gered tur­tles on Ne­vis or div­ing in any of the 350 ex­hil­a­rat­ing sites around the Cay­man Is­lands. We’ve added com­mu­nity tourism projects to our in­spir­ing range of things to do in 2018, such as help­ing to re­store the Waitukubuli Na­tional Trail on Do­minica or reef-clean­ing on Saint Lu­cia. It’s also the Caribbean’s of­fi­cial year of Well­ness and Re­ju­ve­na­tion, so take ad­van­tage of the chance to nour­ish body and mind, whether it’s on The Ba­hamas’ heav­enly beaches or in the world-class spas of The Gre­nadines. We’ll see you there!
