Barbados is fascinating, a mixture of Africa and Britain in the Caribbean. The easternmost of all the Caribbean islands, Barbados is uniquely situated to avoid virtually all hurricanes. Its 166 square miles of forests, cliffs, fishing villages, wildlife, nightlife, and beaches are surrounded by miles of coral reef teeming with an incredible array of sea life and shipwrecks. Some of the best sailing in the Caribbean is here, with southeasterly trade winds to carry you across the water. This is a land rich in history and culture, with an abundance of wildlife, beauty, and nature. There are few other guidebooks on the island and most are badly out-of-date. With 500,000 tourists visiting per year, Barbados is a major attraction with very little guidebook competition. We detail the best diving spots, all types of accommodations, dining, tours, local lore and festivals, services. Extensive background on the history, government, and economy of the island. The author has been a regular visitor for over 20 years. The audiobook is filled with inside information on which festivals are worth your time, where to find the best Bajan music, classes that will teach you the local cooking and artistic styles.

To find the real Puerto Rico - the one that shopping malls and condos have yet to reach - head for the towns and villages of the Cordillera Central, or Central Mountains. Bisected by the Ruta Panoramica (Scenic Route), the mountains provide a relaxing getaway with an atmosphere so unlike the coast that it feels like an entirely different island. The Ruta Panorámica is a driving adventure covering more than a hundred miles of countryside, including coffee plantations, old jíbaro country and four forests: Carite, Toro Negro, Guilarte, and Maricao. Along the route are valleys, canyons, wide-open terraces, and views of the Atlantic and the Caribbean. Visitors who don´t have time to do the whole Ruta Panorámica might consider a driving tour starting out from San Juan to the San Cristobal canyon in Aibonito, returning via Barranquitas - easily doable in a day if you start out early. Or take a few days to enjoy secluded swimming holes, hiking trails, a cloud forest, and the hospitality of the mountain locals. This guide tells you everything about the region: where to stay and eat, what to see and do, how to get around, the history and culture, the fiestas and the cuisine. 1. Language: English.

To the outsider the Cayman Islands - Cayman Brac, Grand Cayman, and Little Cayman - are almost always equated with watersports and glorious beaches, plus offshore banking opportunities. This is hardly surprising, since the Cayman Islands do offer world-class scuba diving in crystal-clear waters as well as a tax-free haven. But these three islands have so much more to offer the traveler who´s willing to wander off the traditional tourist paths, walk away from the beachside resorts, and explore by themselves. Diverse woodlands and pristine wetlands occupy much of the islands´ interiors; rugged hiking trails meander across the peaks and valleys; and mangrove swamps cushion the shoreline, offering a unique breeding ground for many birds and fish. These protected wilderness areas are often left unexplored by lay-in-the-sun-all-day tourists, who miss some of the biggest attractions the islands offer. Join our team of Caribbean experts in their quest to discover ´´the other Caymans´´, the islands´ little-visited spots away from the crowds, where you can trek for miles without seeing another soul; strip down and sun yourself on a secluded beach; or join a group and sail offshore as the sun sets. As with all adventure guides, this book introduces you to the history, geography, and people of the region first, so you have a good background knowledge of the island chain. The authors then take you on a tour, visiting all the popular tourist sites and towns and offering valuable tips on shopping, transportation, restaurants and accommodations. Then it´s on with the adventures: On foot, on and below the water, on wheels, in the air, and on horseback. Among the many fun activities included are:ParaglidingSailingCatamaran cruises Soaring Scuba diving Trekking Hiking Waterskiing Windsurfing Snorkeling Driving tripsHorseback riding For all of ... 1.

This guide focuses on Curacao primarily, the C of the ABC islands, which stretch along the north coast of Venezuela, tucked into a hurricane-protected pocket of the Caribbean Sea. Along with sister islands Aruba and Bonaire, it is part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands; citizens claim Dutch nationality and carry European Union passports. Until recently, the ABCs were part of the six-island group known as the Netherlands Antilles. Aruba became an autonomous country in 1986; Curacao and the Dutch half of St. Martin (Sint Maarten) gained the same status in 2010.
