Overview

Open Road's Best of the Caribbean by Paris Permenter, John Bigley

A selective, ‘best-of’ look at vacationing in the Caribbean for all budgets!

Readers will get an insider look at the best places to vacation in the Caribbean, focusing on beautiful hotels, restaurants, sights, sports and recreational activities. Not every great place in the Caribbean costs a small fortune, and our authors ferret out the best resorts in each price level, as they do with everything covered in this book. The authors, long-time Caribbean experts, offer up the best places to fish, dive, snorkel, shop – and of course their favorite places to relax on a pristine beach with an umbrella drink! All major islands are covered, with 4-color maps and brilliant color photos on most pages!
