If your idea of having fun in the Caribbean is to hit the nightclubs or spend your days on a sandy beach, you’ve come to the right place to learn about all the other great activities that you can take part in. Here is everything you need to know about the attractions of the Caribbean islands.
Go on a day cruise
All the Caribbean islands are surrounded by clear-blue water and sandy shores. You can sip on your cocktail whilst cruising on Saona Island. This chartered cruise will take you over to Dunn’s River Falls in Jamaica, where you’ll be guided through Montego Bay and beyond.
Take part in kayaking
With the help of a personal trainer, a kayaking tour on St. Thomas Lagoon is not to be missed. You can experience the clear waters and the amazing wildlife of St. Thomas, where your kayak will give you a close view of marine life. To enhance your adventurous trip even further, try the less peaceful waters of Rio Bueno in Jamaica. But before you go ahead and book this exciting tour, make sure you have adequate travel insurance in place.
See the breath-taking surroundings of the Caribbean on an eco-tour
The true beauty of the Caribbean is through its wildlife. As you go on a walking eco tour of San Juan, you’ll come across the ecological park which is situated in Punta Cana. Here you will see everything from gorillas to reptiles as well as petroglyphs.
View the sights from up above
For a totally different perspective of the Caribbean, take the helicopter tour that gives you the best view of the amazing landscapes. For something a little more exciting in Dominican Republic, you can take a hot air balloon ride in the morning with champagne breakfast. What a way to start your day!
Learn about the history and culture of the Caribbean
Caribbean islands are not only about the beaches and wildlife. It’s easy to forget the rich history of the cities with their cobblestoned streets and authentic restaurants. By going on a historical city tour in Nassau, you’ll get an insight into the most sought after landmarks of the Bahamas. There are lots of attractions to see on this tour including the Pink Palace and the Queen’s Staircase.
Horse riding in Dominican Republic
You won’t be able to truly experience the Dominican culture until you go horse riding in the countryside. This is the perfect opportunity to eat the traditional local cuisine such as jerk (spicy) chicken or goat stew. A day trip to the botanical gardens of Caguas should not be missed as this includes a walking tour of the local sugar mill and Grand Cayman food tasting tour.
Visit Bob Marley’s museum
This museum is the most visited site in the Caribbean as it provides an interesting insight into the singer’s life and music. Bob Marley’s former recording studio is situated at the back of the exhibition hall and there are lots of photos on display. This is an hour-long tour that’s by far the most popular tourist attraction.
