With amazing culture, beaches, activities and weather – not to mention the rum – the Caribbean is a joyous riot of islands offering the ultimate escape
One Region, 7000 Islands
Rocked by music, rolled by change, lapped by turquoise water, blown by hurricanes – the Caribbean is not a place anyone could call static. It’s a lively and intoxicating profusion of people and places spread over 7000 islands (fewer than 10% are inhabited).
But, for all they share, there’s also much that makes them different. Forming a huge swath around the Caribbean Sea, the namesake islands contradict in ways big and small. Can there be a greater contrast than between socialist Cuba and its neighbour, the bank-packed Cayman Islands? Or between booming British-oriented St Kitts and its sleepy, Dutch-affiliated neighbour Sint Eustatius, just across a narrow channel? Travel long enough in this region and you’ll soon discover there is no typical Caribbean.
Every Colour Everywhere
Azure seas, white beaches, green forests so vivid they actually hurt the eyes – there is nothing subtle about the bold colours of the Caribbean. Swim below the waters for a colour chart of darting fish and corals. Wander along the sand and stop at the paintfactory explosion that is a beach bar, from the garish decor to the rum punch in your glass. Hike into emerald wilderness and spot the accents of red orchids and yellow parrots.
Even the food is colourful, with rainbows of produce brightening up the local markets.
You’ll also see every colour but dull at intense, costume-filled festivities like Carnival, celebrated throughout the region. And all this colour is infectious. Like birds shedding dull adolescent plumage, visitors leave their wardrobes of gray and black behind when they step off the plane and don the Caribbean palette.
