Planning

Holiday companies and travel agents tend to market the Caribbean as a homogenous tropical destination, but in reality each island has its own personality and what suits one person will not suit another. You have a choice between British, Spanish, French, American and Dutch islands, so language might be a consideration. Some islands are more difficult to get to than others. How much time do you want to spend travelling to your destination? Do you want to stay in one place or indulge in a spot of island-hopping? Do you like company and organized activities or would you prefer an empty mountain or deserted beach? Do you want to take it easy and relax or are you an active person who needs to face challenges? Use our selection of itineraries as a guideline for what is possible within different time frames, and have a look at our sections on when and where to go.
