Which Caribbean Island Fits You Best? (Part 2)
Updated: Apr 7, 2020
The Caribbean has thousands of islands (yes, really thousands) With all of these choices, how do you pick the perfect destination for you? Here is our quick and dirty guide to finding your perfect match.
Perfect for Adventure Seekers
St. Lucia ideal for travelers with a yen for local culture and adventure. You will whiz through the treetops of St Lucia's rain forests on zip lines, hike the
cocoa plantations, drive through the world's only drive-through volcano and don't forget to sling some mud at one of St Lucia's famous sulfur springs.
Resorts Jessie Recommends for St Lucia: Ladera Resort, Sugar Beach, and BodyHoliday.
Perfect for Culture & History
Although the door to Cuba has shut a little recently; it is still available right now, and you need to go before it closes completely. If you want a little peek into what might have been, Cuba is for you! Founded in the 16th Century, Cuba is history set to a Rumba beat and bolstered by rum....who doesn't want to experience that?
Resorts Jessie Recommends for Cuba: Royalton Cayo Santa Maria, Melia Caya Coco, and Paradisus Princesa Del Mar.
Perfect for Sportsmen (and Women)
Does even the idea of spending hours on a beach collecting shells leave you feeling bored? The Bahamas are calling you; it is the sportsman's paradise! World-class golf courses, hands down the best fishing in the Caribbean, sailing, diving, snorkeling, paddle boarding, shopping...you name it the Bahamas have it.
Resorts Jessie recommends for the Bahamas: Tiamo Resort, Fowl Cay Private Island and Resort, and the Ocean Club, a Four Seasons Resort.
St Vincent & Grenadines
Perfect for Privacy
St. Vincent and the Grenadines is a sparking chain of Caribbean islands where you can hop from luxury private island to luxury private island on an indulgent yachting adventure. It’s a place of steep hills, deep valleys and stunning beaches and picturesque waterfalls...it's also a place where you can go and not see any other people unless you want to.
Resorts Jessie recommends for St Vincent and the Grenadines: Palm Island Resort, Mustique Island & Villas, and Petite St Vincent.
Turks & Caicos
Perfect for Relaxing
If reading that to new page-turner is the most exciting thing you want to do on vacation, then Turks and Caicos are where you should head. The beaches are stunning; the adult beverages are plentiful; the massage therapists have amazing grip strength and the resort staff exist only to make sure your every whim is immediately met. Turks are pretty much my definition of heaven.
Resorts Jessie recommends for Turks and Caicos: COMO Parrot Cay, Amanyara, and the Grace Bay Club.
