Cool Caribbean Vacation Ideas

Cool Caribbean Vacation Ideas #1

By Jan from Michigan - The best place that I have vacationed thus far in my life is Ambergris Caye, Belize. The first great thing about it is that Belize is not too far from many U.S. locations, making it easy to travel to.

Secondly, the island is absolutely beautiful, pretty much exactly what you'd imagine when you think of a tropical island. I also like that it is very unique.

On Ambergris Caye, people drive around in golf carts (which are so much fun!) and the main street is right on the beach with no paved sidewalk, so you're just walking around on the sand.

Another great thing is that there are tons of water-sports and activities to do. You can snorkel or scuba the Blue Hole, you can scuba, para-sail, cave tube or visit Mayan Ruins.

If that's not your thing, you can relax the day beach side on a hammock tied between two palm trees! Overall, it's a beautiful and fun location with tons of options for activities, leisure, and dining and is easily reached from the US.

By Zoe from New Mexico - I love going to San Ignacio, Belize. Located in the Cayo District, San Ignacio is situated at the confluence of two rivers, the Mopan and the Macal. With the majestic Maya Mountains nearby and lush forest surrounding it, this place has a rare beauty.

The people speak English, Creole and Spanish. Nearly every nationality and ethnicity is represented in this part of Belize and for the most part, everyone co-exists well. A great, inexpensive place to stay for the first few nights is the Venus Hotel. It sits right downtown and has a nice roof-top balcony. Go up there at dawn and enjoy the sounds of tropical birds coming to life and watch the mist rise off the Macal River. Unforgettable.

Eat breakfast at Eva's, across the street and learn about the area in a relaxed atmosphere. Take a quick taxi ride up to Cahal Pech, the Mayan site located on the edge of town.

On your return, dance the night away at Blue Angels, just down the street. Take the bus to the Belize Zoo, tour the Mountain Pine Ridge forest preserve and absolutely hire a guide and take a canoe trip down the Mopan.

Cool Caribbean Vacation Ideas # 3

By Teri from Georgia - My favorite Caribbean vacation spot is St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. This is such a great island to visit. It is a U.S. Territory so you don't need a passport to visit. The island is very small and you really get that deserted tropical island feeling when on the beaches.

There are dozens of breathtaking beaches to choose from on St John. My favorite is Maho Bay. You can pull your car right up to the beach and are just steps from the most beautiful water you have ever seen.

I also love to hike the many trails around the island and visit all the old ruins that are scattered about. Annaberg sugar plantation is always a favorite spot to visit. You can't go to St John without spending at least a day on the water.

The guys at Oceanrunner powerboat rental have been great to me every time I have rented from them. They provide a captain so you don't have to worry about navigating the waters yourself and are free to enjoy the day! I could go on and on about St John. Do yourself a favor and visit.

Cool Caribbean Vacation Ideas #4

By Anastasia from Arizona - My favorite vacation spot is Jamaica. I love Jamaica because of the culture, the adventurous things to do and the people. While I was there I went tubing down a river that was surrounded by mountains and rainforest and it started pouring rain about half way down the river and there was no lightening or thunder at all and the rain was very warm. The temperature in the middle of the day was around 85 degrees.

After tubing I went to eat at a mom and pop style restaurant, where I danced in the rain drinking Heinekens and had the best Jamaican Jerk chicken I have ever tasted. After which we went down to the local market and bought souvenirs, and there were tons of things to choose from including a lot of homemade crafts.

To top it all off, the attitude and the demeanor of the locals there was extremely inviting and worry free which helped me to relax after a full day of fun and new experiences.

Cool Caribbean Vacation Ideas #5

By Ryan from New Jersey - My favorite place to vacation is the Bahamas. I went there on a cruise once and it was beautiful. The sand was pearl white, and the water was the cleanest I've ever seen. It may have been just because I was a tourist, but the people were so nice. Being able to sit and read in the sun, as well as swim in the gorgeous ocean was amazing.

A second place I'd like to go to is just staying at a hotel in my town. Hold no responsibilities, but be near home and relax, that would be so relaxing and nice. I would be able to read all I want and sleep and nap.

I honestly love hotels more than vacation places sometimes. I can swim in a well-kept pool and I can work out in a nice well-kept gym. My bed and room is always nice and tidy and it's always nice to come home to a nicely put together room.
