The entire region of Caribbean consists of more than 700 islands located within the waters of the Caribbean Sea, the Sea itself and the surrounding coast.

There is such a colourful collection of traditions, cuisines and history.

The islands group into several archipelagos: Lucayan Archipelago, Greater Antilles, Lesser Antilles, Windward Islands and Leeward Antilles.
The climate in the Caribbean is mostly tropical or subtropical. Worldwide, Caribbean is mostly known for being a paradise on Earth for travellers.
Beautiful pristine beaches with white sand bordered by palm trees are like out of this world.

The revolutionary Cuba, slow paced rhythmic Jamaica, eventful Barbados, old fashioned St Vincent and so many others. You will probably feel like the time stood still in there, at least for a while.
Everything goes in a slower pace than anything you are used to and nobody is busy or stressed. And it’s a gorgeous feeling! Then again, the culture of Caribbean will hook you up.
The blend of African, Cajun, Latin, South Asian and East Indian with some Arabic influence as well is simply irresistible.
