The Caribbean islands are everything that postcards present them to be and much more. Do not limit yourself to just the picturesque white beaches and majestic blue skies - to experience the true colors of the Caribbean, you should visit its side streets, too. Here is a rundown of interesting things to do on your trip.
The Caribbean island beaches are magnificent. The photographs don't do it justice - you can only really experience the addicting charm of Caribbean beaches when you set foot on the clean white sands, wade through clear blue waters, and open your arms wide to welcome its warm tropical breezes. Depending on your budget, you could either go to the more public beaches or rent out a resort - or even a whole island - for a more peaceful and intimate experience.
Resorts and hotels near the Caribbean beaches differ in class and quality of accommodations, and you will surely find something to fit your taste and requirements. Most people prefer to scrimp on hotel rooms because they don't stay in much, anyway - the real beauty of the Caribbean, after all, is outdoors!
There are a lot of things to do in Caribbean beaches - you can sunbathe, go snorkeling, boating, etc. There are special scuba diving group classes available, and this is a good option if you are a first-timer or new to the sport.
To experience the true culture of the Caribbean islands, take time to visit areas outside of the resorts. Eat street food, dance to the music of the local musicians, and buy little trinkets from the quaint shops that line their friendly streets. You'll find that the Caribbean way of life is worlds apart from how you live yours - you will literally see goats walking side-by-side with people on the streets! Surprises await you in every corner, and all of them are guaranteed to be charming and delightful. Bring your dictionary, though--a lot of the local residents do not speak English.
