Top 5 things to see and do in the Caribbean

The Caribbean is a region in Central America, home to over 7,000 beautiful islands and 28 nations. With so many islands to explore, it can be difficult to decide where to begin. We have compiled a list of few suggestions that we feel will add to your holiday experience.

Meet the Wildlife

With its crystal waters and sandbars, wildlife has flourished in the oceans. Come face to face with stingrays, whale sharks and even humpback whales. Check with your accommodation to see if they have any wildlife tours for you to sign up to.

Explore the Caves

The Cayman Crystal caves, located on Grand Cayman, are a natural wonder. With centuries of stalagmites dripping from the ceilings and crystal blue water to wade through, this is one for the bucket list. Be sure to cross it off.

Enjoy a Resort

Even if you don't stay at a resort, you can still enjoy them. Book a day pass and you can have fun at their water park, get a massage at a world-class spa, eat incredible food or even see a live event.

Hunt Waterfalls

The natural landscape of the Caribbean islands is something else. Go on hikes throughout your island and see if you can find a reclusive waterfall for your very own. There will be plenty of places for you to swim, too.

Enjoy the Nightlife

The Caribbean islands are a fusion of African and European cultures and completely unique. Get out there and enjoy their music, their food and the nightlife.

Whatever you do, remember to take precautions. No one wants their trip to be cut short because of a broken leg or a jellyfish sting. Get comprehensive travel insurance before you go and know what to look out for to stay safe and keep having fun.
