Whether you choose to go to the relaxing island of Carriacou or to the unspoiled Petite Martinique, every Caribbean experience can be likened to an escape to paradise. Besides the wholesome beauty that is available on the islands, visitors and tourists can also hope for several fascinating activities that will definitely complete their vacation. Following are a few events in which you can participate in December:

The film festival is well-known and attracts famous directors and stars from Hollywood, like Sean Connery, Nicholas Cage, and others; it runs from the 6th to the 13th of December. The BIFF program includes special screenings, film making and scriptwriting workshops, discussions, tributes and gala events.
