Exploring the Caribbean is sure to be a fantastic adventure no matter where exactly you go in that region. However, if you are looking for the most exciting and interesting experiences, you might want to start with the following activities:
Visit Morne Trois Pitons National Park in Dominica
A place that deserves to make it on everyone’s bucket list is Morne Trois Pitons National Park. This is a place of incredible natural beauty and biodiversity. No words can describe the magnificence of local landscapes, and you’ll have 15 miles of picturesque trail to see the most notable of them.
It’s not all lush greenery and scenic cliffs though. This park is home to the Valley of Desolation, a place right out of sci-fi movies. It’s hard to think of anything but alien worlds when you see plains of cracked bare earth interspersed with small ponds of boiling mud. Geysers are also right there as the volcanic activity on the island never stops.
Ride a vintage car in Havana
While astonishingly beautiful nature of the Caribbean islands is their foremost attraction, you also shouldn’t forget about the unique experiences the inhabited parts of these lands offer. One of the most interesting of such experiences is the classic car tour in Havana. The city is renowned for having a multitude of vintage cars that mainly date back to the 1950s. Exploring Havana in one of them is sure to make your visit more special and memorable.
As the majority of buildings in Havana are rather old and quaint, your vintage ride will fit right in. If you want to make this adventure even more interesting, you can dress up in period costumes and have an impromptu photo shoot. The pictures will definitely warm you up when you look at them on cold winter evenings.
Enjoy a scenic train ride in St. Kitts
If you are fond of trains or simply want to enjoy the beautiful views of St. Kitts in comfort, a ride on the St. Kitts Scenic Railway is exactly what you need. The railway dates back to 1912 but it became a tourist attraction only in 2003.
The railway was designed specifically to provide the most comfortable ride to everyone who wants to enjoy the scenery. Ride at the top level of a double-decker cart to get the most out of this experience.
Dance to Jamaican Reggae
Upbeat music is a big part of the Caribbean culture, but it’s in Jamaica that you can feel this most acutely. The world-renowned motherland of Reggae, Jamaica offers travelers many opportunities to enjoy passionate music.
You won’t be able to hold back from dancing when hearing those and other local rhythms. And you definitely shouldn’t try because dancing with the locals will help you understand them better and get closer to the fascinating culture of the region. Even observing the dances is a fantastic experience due to the colorful costumes of skilled dancers and a veritable avalanche of positive emotions they seem to exude.
Go cave tubing in Belize
For those who are looking for an adrenalin rush, Belize offers a great opportunity to test your limits. Cave tubing is an experience you definitely need to add to your Caribbean itinerary because it’s nothing short of incredible.
This adventure will take you to explore the many caves of Belize. No theme park will seem all that impressive after you go tubing down into the caves and explore them from the inside. The underworld can be intimidating and fascinating in equal measure, and it’s definitely set to be a highlight of any Caribbean tour.
