Vote for your Country in the Battle of the Islands! Caribbean Vacation

By Josh Riverside

 Travel Guide     

If you like basking in the sun and frolicking in clean blue waters, then a Caribbean vacation is a dream come true. To make the most out of it, though, you need to plan for what to do and where to go. Below are some ideas.

If you don't have time to plan ahead, go for a prepackaged trip. A lot of travel companies offer prepackaged itineraries complete with accommodations and meals for people who have no idea how to spend their time in the Caribbean or don't have much time to research and arrange for their own activities. Buying a prepackaged tour is also usually the most cost-effective option - you will be given group rates, so you pay less. Prepackaged itineraries generally give you free time early in the morning and after lunch so you can explore the islands on your own. All you will really need is a map to find your way around - you will never run out of things to do when you're there!

If you want to explore the Caribbean on your own, do your planning at least three months in advance. You can customize your own trip if you want to see more places and travel in your own time, but remember - the Caribbean islands can be a lot to handle without a tour guide, so research and plan ahead. Go online to see what resorts fit your taste and budge. There are more public resorts for lower prices, which are generally nearer shopping spots, too. There are also private resort facilities in more secluded islands, which is best if you are on a honeymoon or want more peace and quiet.

Don't limit yourself to the beaches - if you have time to spend, you should also include a tour of the Caribbean rainforests and the interesting key cities in your trip. Some ideas: If you find yourself in the Dominican Republic, don't miss the grand waterfalls, the majestic volcanic zeniths and boiling lakes, and, of course, their world-famous forest preserves!

If shopping and dining are more your style, though, then try St. Martin Island. This charming place is actually a shared territory of the Netherlands and France, so you'll get to eat a fusion of French cuisines and do a lot of duty-free shopping. It's the perfect place for people who love the night life, too.
