Overview

The Caribbean has captivated travelers for centuries, with the warmth of the sun, the coral-filled seas and the startling colors and scents of the fruit and flowers. The islands' long history has left traces from all over the world: Parisian chic, English parish churches, Dutch gables, Hindu prayer flags, Muslim minarets and, everywhere, echoes of Africa, not least in the all-accompanying rhythms, from Jamaican reggae to Haitian voodoo drums. The Caribbean is everyone's first choice for an all-over body-holiday, daiquiri in hand, but summon the energy and you can swim with angelfish off Bonaire, spot hummingbirds on Tobago, island-hop in the Bahamas, or hike through the Blue Mountains in Jamaica.This guide contains: practical travel advice; 900 hand-picked places to stay; 1,100 restaurants and bars; 500 sports and activities recommendations; 49 user-friendly maps; stunning photography; where to find steel pan on Trinidad and liqueur on Curacao. (5 1/2 x 8 1/2, 882 pages, color photos, maps)
