The Caribbean or also called West Indies are a beautiful beach holiday destination. They, however, offer much more as just pristine beaches. This Caribbean travel guide covers everything.
Most have remains from colonial time when England, France, and the Netherlands ruled most. Some are still overseas territories of these countries. These colonial remains are well worth exploring if you’re tired of the beach. There are islands that are more known for nature too which are covered largely in pristine rain forest. If you’re lucky you can spot some Arawak Indian remains too which ruled the island for a long time before colonization.
It’s easy to get to the Caribbean from either Europe or the United States but it’s also possible from South America. Most islands are connected by multiple flights a day, but some might not have daily connections or can be reached only by boat. This Caribbean travel guide will help you plan your trip to the Caribbean. It’s a magnificent destination for sure!
