Top 5 Destinations in the Caribbean for an All-Inclusive Vacation
Millions of travelers escape to the Caribbean every year in search of warm tropical sunshine, white sand beaches and crystal clear water. The Caribbean also happens to be an ideal destination for anyone who is searching for an easy tropical getaway because the islands offer an impressive selection of picture perfect all-inclusive resorts. Some people are surprised to learn that some of the Caribbean islands don’t have any all-inclusive resorts, so naturally some destinations are much better choices than others. So, where exactly should you go in the Caribbean to find your dream all-inclusive vacation?
In no particular order, here are the top 5 destinations in the Caribbean for an all-inclusive vacation:
The beautiful island of Jamaica is located in the northwestern Caribbean Sea, about 90 miles south of Cuba and 110 miles west of Haiti. It is the third largest island in the Caribbean and is approximately 148 miles long and 52 miles wide, which is about the size of the state of Connecticut. Jamaica has been called “the land of wood and water” and the landscape of the island includes beaches, waterfalls, rivers, mountains and lush tropical foliage. This destination is well known for its natural beauty, cuisine, reggae music, rich culture, and friendly locals.
2. Dominican Republic
The Dominican Republic is the second largest country in the Caribbean and is comprised of the eastern two-thirds of the island of Hispaniola. Many people refer to the island as the “DR” and the average temperature throughout the year is a pleasant 82 degrees Fahrenheit. There are 1,000 miles of gorgeous golden sand beaches that are lined with palm trees and the island offers a variety in landscape with picturesque mountains, rivers, rain forests, and beaches. Visitors to the island can easily get a taste of the history and culture, especially when trying the local coffees, strong rums, and fragrant cigars. Most of the hotels in the region are in Punta Cana and ninety percent of the resorts are all-inclusive.
3. St Lucia
St. Lucia is an independent state within the British Commonwealth of Nations and is one of the Caribbean’s most popular vacation destinations, especially with honeymooners and couples seeking romance. This lush green mountainous island was formed out of volcanic rock and is located halfway between Martinique and St. Vincent. Dense rain forest and mountainous jungles cover most of the central and southwest part of the island and the signature twin peaks, Petit Piton and Gros Piton, are well-known landmarks located on the Southwest coast. Travelers should choose this destination if they are looking to enjoy breathtaking natural beauty.
The Caribbean island of Antigua is located southeast of Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands and is surrounded by the North Atlantic Ocean to the East and the Caribbean Sea to the West. Antigua is the largest of the British Leeward Islands and it has been nicknamed “Land of 365 Beaches”, because there are enough beaches on the island to visit a different one every day of the year. The island is approximately fourteen miles long and eleven miles wide. The terrain is hilly and composed of volcanic rock, limestone, and coral. The central Caribbean location and multiple harbors have turned Antigua into a major sailing destination.
5. The Bahamas
The Bahamas are located southeast of Florida and consists of more than 700 islands and cays. The islands are very close to the United States and the shorter flight times make this the quintessential Caribbean vacation destination for many people. Some of the islands are more populated while others are quite isolated. People come to the Bahamas for its white sand beaches, duty-free shops, fishing, scuba diving excursions, and luxurious accommodations. There is an alluring mix of land and sea activities and nature enthusiasts can explore the offshore reefs and wildlife preserves, while golfers can tee up on the numerous par-72 golf courses.
