Grand Turk, Turk and Caicos Islands
Grand Turk is the capital of the Turks and Caicos Islands. This small island is bursting with turn-of-the-century charm. Founded by Bermudan Salt Rakers some three centuries ago, its Bermudan British colonial architecture amidst the colorful Caribbean style dwellings make Grand Turk worth a visit. Blessed with miles of quiet sugary beaches, it is close to several uninhabited cays just waiting to be explored. Grand Turk excels in providing spectacular diving, snorkeling, fishing and sailing. The warm Atlantic waters are filled with an incredible array of marine life from dolphins to the magnificent humpback whale.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Historic Old San Juan is Puerto Rico’s bastion of Spanish colonial tradition, with well-preserved buildings lining cobblestone streets, wrought-iron balconies ablaze with purple bougainvillea, and the massive El Morro Fortress which guards the harbor and oversees the majestic landscape. Nearby, new San Juan flaunts a sleek skyline of luxury five star resort hotels. As the sun sets, roulette wheels spin as glittering casinos and nightclubs beckon. Nature lovers will enjoy El Yunque rainforest with its mountain lakes and waterfalls.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Philipsburg combines its historical legacy with 20th Century excitement. A dash of Paris and a splash of Dutch and Caribbean essence make this little island a blend of pure paradise. St. Maarten’s beaches are among the region’s most breathtaking. Shared by the French and Dutch for over 350 years, it’s like visiting two islands in one. St. Maarten features some of the best shopping buys in the Caribbean. Sidewalk cafes, open air markets, and beautiful white sand beaches lined with coconut palms await you.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas
