Experience the Caribbean Journey

Geographically, the Caribbean region is mainly a chain of islands surrounding the Caribbean Sea.  The region is southeast of the Gulf of Mexico, the Straits of Florida and the Atlantic Ocean, east of Central America, and north of South America.  Positioned largely on the Caribbean Plate, the region covers more than 700 islands, islets, reefs and cays.  These islands usually form island arcs that delimit the eastern and northern edges of the Caribbean Sea.

The region experiences year-round sunshine, divided into ‘dry’ and ‘wet’ seasons, with the second half of the year being mistier than the first half, while the northern islands, like the Bahamas, Cuba, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, may be influenced by arctic air masses throughout winter months, such as cold fronts.

This Caribbean region boasts an abundantly diverse heritage with British colonial ancestries in Antigua, Grand Turk’s Bermudan influences, and of course, the rich Dutch and French cultures of extraordinary St. Maarten.  Prevalent official languages of various countries in the region are Spanish, English, Portuguese, French, Dutch, Haitian Creole, Antillean Creole French, and Papiamento.

You can uncover any kind of island adventure here in the Caribbean. With so many islands, beaches, cultures, flavors and waves to choose from, how could you not consider this on your bucket list?  Here are a few of the breathtaking natural beauties of this region:
