An easy trip from the US, a visit to the Caribbean islands is the perfect introduction for a new diver or a relaxing and easy getaway for the more experienced. Between dives wander colonial plantations, hike volcanic peaks, plunge into freshwater pools below sparkling waterfalls, and stroll along white sandy beaches at sunset.
Join the party at the local hot spot and sample some spicy barbecue or fish curry washed down with a cold drink. Each island has a fascinating history and vibrant local culture. Luxuriate in the spa at a five-star resort or share a 3-bedroom condo with friends and family, there are plenty of choices.
