The word, Caribbean is synonymous with wide expanses of sandy beaches fringed with windswept palms, azure blue waters teeming with exotic marine life, stunning sunrises, and romantic sunsets, combined with the throbbing rhythm of dance and music. More than 700 islands make up this part of the Americas which are vacation hotspots and go-to destinations for those wanting to add some vibrant color to their tranquil holiday.
The Caribbean exudes a myriad of intoxicating colors, from its vibrant and varied landscape to the food and dress of the people that inhabit these lands. While some of the islands like the Bahamas, Barbados and Antigua and Barbuda are relatively flat, the islands of volcanic origin like Puerto Rico, Saint Lucia, Saint Kitts, and Trinidad and Tobago are more rugged with lofty mountain ranges. Many visitors to the Caribbean enjoy hopping from one island to the next to explore and experience the diversity which is sometimes rather astonishing. From colonial Santo Domingo to the wealthy Cayman Islands and revolutionary Cuba, each island has a distinct personality of its own.
