Dreaming of a trip to the Caribbean? With warm climates year-round, white sandy beaches and refreshing turquoise waters it's the perfect getaway for winter and summer alike.

But we'll dive a bit further than just the beautiful natural wonders. The Caribbean islands have rich culture and heritage which is very different even between Cuba and the Bahamas or the Dominican Republic.

One thing the islands share is incredibly warm hospitality which helps to make the experience memorable.

Bahamas - Want to find the best (free) beaches near Nassau? We've got you covered with some DIY shore excursions so you can save your money for more margaritas!

Cuba - Prepare to be transported back in time because from the moment you step off the plane or ship in Havana, you'll feel like you're on the set of an old-school-cool Hollywood film.

Dominican Republic -  this tropical paradise has beautiful beaches to explore and seriously fun waterfalls you can slip and slide your way down.

Virgin Islands - The British and US Virgin Islands are home to possibly the most stunning beaches in the Caribbean.

It is - we assure you - because most of the crowds won't know how to get here without $200 excursion - we'll show you how to do it for a fraction of that price.
