U.S. Virgin Islands
With St. Thomas, St. John, or St. Croix, you can’t go wrong. Known as “America’s Caribbean Paradise”, the U.S. Virgin Islands are the place to go to for sunny beaches, lows of 70 and highs of 85 in the winter months, and countless islets and cays. A perfect combination of nature, pampering, and history. And there’s no need to worry about changing currency, you can pay for everything in the Virgin Islands with U.S. dollars.
Wander through St. Thomas and see the luxury it offers such as yachts moored in the harbor and the high-end stores along Main Street. St. John is for nature lovers and romantics, offering more than 7,000 acres of dedicated parkland plus surrounding pristine beaches. For more of a historical take on the Islands, visit St. Croix as it has sugar cane plantations and rum distilleries that offer a glimpse into the past and present of the Virgin Islands.
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
The glittering metropolis Rio is known as the Marvelous City. The city’s beaches are endless white sand surrounded by lush rainforests and a backdrop of lovely green mountains, this city is stunning from every angle. Are you a big sports fan? So is Brazil. In Rio, you can go see Maracanã Stadium, where the 2014 World Cup finals and the 2016 Olympic Games were held.
Known for its dense rainforests, abundance of wildlife, and unspoiled beaches, Costa Rica remains a favorite destination for many. Hiking through active volcanoes, zip lining through cloud-covered rainforests, and surfing? Costa Rica is compact but offers diverse experiences including the tropical paradise and outdoor adventures and activities. Roam thick jungles or visit the beaches this “Rich Coast” has to offer. Live the pure life by kicking back and admiring the beautiful scenery.
Who doesn’t love year-round summer weather? Regardless of the time of year, the Caymans stay rather consistent at 80+ degrees all year long. In the Caymans, sunsets are supreme. With three islands to choose from, Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman, the options are endless. The three islands offer magnificent diving and snorkeling on the well-kept reefs at more than 360 dive sites across the three islands. Grand Cayman, the largest island, has the 7-mile beach which is known for its stunning hotels, restaurants offering the freshest seafood, and obviously the 7-mile beach.
Turks and Caicos
The Turks and Caicos truly embody the phrase “island time” with white sand beaches, perfectly clear blue water, colorful coral reefs, and a relaxed, lighthearted atmosphere. Turks and Caicos continues to uphold its reputation as a secluded and exclusive destination. Made up of a network of 40 islands and cays, Turks and Caicos has much to offer. Find glamor in Providenciales which hosts a variety of luxurious hotels. Travel to Grand Turk to experience history and culture with the Turks and Caicos National Museum or along the shores of Cockburn Town where Christopher Columbus docked in the Western Hemisphere for the first time. Explore some of the best diving spots in the world in Salt Cay including one of the largest reef systems.
This tucked-away jewel on Mexico’s eastern coast has grown into a coveted vacation over the past few years. On top of the wonderful beaches and Caribbean Sea, Tulum has some of the best-preserved Mayan ruins in the Western Hemisphere. A quiet alternative to other Mexican cities, Tulum also has bioreserves and underground water-filled caverns to be explored.
While a lot of destinations in the Caribbean offer beautiful white-sand beaches and well-manicured golf courses, Barbados has its own set of qualifications. In Barbados, visitors can attend a cricket or polo match, dance to a calypso or reggae song, and sip on a variety of rums. While some people decide to spend all day on the beaches, there is plenty to do inland. This island is brimming with architecture and a dedicated sports culture. Being the easternmost island in the Caribbean, Barbados has a mix of cultures. After gaining independence from Great Britain in 1966, Barbados still loves British traditions such as afternoon tea and horse races.
