In a region of more than 7,000 islands, it’s hard to pick just one. Drop off bags in one of the following destinations and set sail for a change of pace:
Puerto Rico: Get off the urban path and tuck into this 4-star hotel in Fajardo. The ferry ride to Culebra takes a little over an hour … and costs less than US$5 roundtrip. With a much calmer vibe than oft-crowded mainland beaches, once there, grab a cab for amazing snorkeling and kayaking in the calm waters of Playa Flamenco.
St. Lucia: Make a memorable trip from an all-inclusive resort on St. Lucia to the French-speaking island of Martinique. Climb on a high-speed catamaran for a 80-minute journey to the neighboring island. Spend hours exploring the colorful markets of the capital, Fort-de-France, or take a tour of the historic Fort Saint Louis, located on a peninsula a short walk from the terminal.
Turks and Caicos: Flying into Providenciales on a four-night getaway with air affords plenty of time -- and some extra cash – to explore the surrounding islands of the Turks and Caicos. Hop aboard for a 25-minute ride from "Provo" to North Caicos. Stroll along miles of unspoiled beaches and check out dozens of pink birds at the island’s Flamingo Pond Nature Reserve.
