On the islands of the Caribbean you can lie in a hammock all day, sipping a coconut, relaxing and letting your batteries re-charge. For those of a more adventurous or active nature the islands also offer a huge choice of water sports and magnificent nature. The Caribbean consists of more than 7000 islands and stretches from the southern tip of Florida in the USA to Venezuela! Even though the Caribbean covers a relatively small geographic area, the islands themselves are culturally very different from each other – there’s so much to explore!
A country for every taste
Cuba- a favourite amongst young, curious people with an interest in history, fantastic music, and dancing. You can pick up a little extra knowledge about the history and culture, whilst simultaneously improving your knowledge of rum and cigars! You can also learn some Spanish at our language school in the charming capital, Havana. Relax on the beach or by the pool at an all-inclusive resort. Take an adventure tour to really explore the island.
Jamaica- an interesting, cultural experience, especially for them for whom the perfect holiday soundtrack is reggae music. Party atmosphere; bright colours; happy, smiling people; and fantastic beaches are many of the trademarks of this island!
The Dominican Republic- Yet another favourite with the younger generation with low prices, beautiful beaches, and wind conditions that are perfect for kite- and windsurfing.
Trinidad and Tobago- Has a famous carnival in February each year: a true Caribbean party filled with calypso music, dancing, and happy people! Perfect for those that love to combine a beach holiday with music and dancing.
This is just a small selection of what you can experience on a trip to the Caribbean. There are so many islands to choose from! You just have to find the island that’s perfect for you or put together an itinerary that allows you to hop from one island to the next, allowing you to really experience the Caribbean. If you need help, we offer free travel assistance to plan your trip.
Travelling to and around the Caribbean
There are many ways to get to the Caribbean, but only a few islands have direct connections to Europe. It's therefore to mix in a number of stops on route e.g. Miami (USA), Mexico or Venezuela. Why not make the most of the opportunity to visit a number of islands whilst you are here? Did we mention the paradise islands of Aruba, Bahamas, Barbados, Curacao, Grenada and the Netherlands Antilles? Each of these offer their own unique Caribbean flavour.
Where to stay in the Caribbean?
If you really want to get the most out of your money, and your trip to the Caribbean, then we recommend staying at an all-inclusive resort. For almost the same price of a regular hotel room you get all your drinks and meals included. Other alternatives include small boutique hotels, or simple budget hotels. Always make sure that your hotel has a good location as many of the cheaper hotels are located a long way from the life is!
