  • Pardise!

    "From the moment we arrived at Paradise Found, everything was perfect. Barry and Diane were great hosts and added so much to a fantastic week for me and my wife. We barely got settled in, when Barry showed up with fresh picked limes from his garden. They were easily the best limes we have ever tasted. Barry then took me down the street where his fisherman neighbor had fresh lobster tail. We bought 5 lbs at a reduced rate and later the next evening Barry and Diane showed us how to prepare them for grilling. The lobster was amazing and we had it for dinner four out of the six nights we were there. This may have been the highlight of the trip!! The accommodations were great and had everything you would need for a relaxing week. Barry even provided snorkeling equipment for use right off the back porch steps! Barry and Diane are extremely knowledgeable about the area and gave great recommendations for restaurants and beaches. Paradise Found is located in a quiet neighborhood away from the maddening crowds, but still close enough to shopping, restaurants, beaches, etc. if you want to go exploring. I would definitely recommend renting a car to get around. We really enjoyed our daily visits to Cabbage Beach on Paradise Island (ask Barry about his “secret” parking area) and was surprised at how uncrowded it was, especially the east side of the beach away from the hotels. Overall my wife and I couldn’t have been happier with Paradise Found and we are already planning our next visit there! Thanks again Barry and Diane!"

  • Wonderful apartment

    "This apartment had it all. The location was amazing, just a short walk up the hill from an excellent beach. And the unit itself was much bigger than we had expected -- with 2 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large dining room, a large living room, a patio and a balcony. The views from the unit were also mesmerizing; we'll never forget looking out at the ocean for sunsets on the balcony, a glass of rose or a bottle of beer in hand. There's also a nice pool that guests can use -- perfect for a quick dip after going to the beach. Heather was a gracious and very accommodating host, too. She is very helpful with restaurant suggestions, so don't miss the Coal Pot, which is just a short drive away. In general, we would recommend that anyone staying here rent a car. We would also recommend that you bring or buy bug spray because there are quite a few mosquitoes."

  • Perfect apartment in the best location

    "My husband and I, together with three other friends, rented this apartment for a last minute vacation. The photos are completely accurate - the apartment is stunning! The place is very tastefully decorated and well maintained. We were a group of 5 and the apartment was incredibly comfortable for us, including the sofa bed in the lounge. The view from the veranda is unbeatable!!!! We spent a long time researching the ideal location on the island and we definitely found it. Grand Case is full of excellent restaurants and bars but without being over the top. The food pretty much anywhere is fantastic, and there's a full range of places and prices to choose from. It's true that the beach in front of the apartment is not the best, but the island is so small that it's easy to get to the most amazing beach in just a few minutes. The apartment building is small and the neighbors are friendly and very quiet. There is an elevator that goes up until the second floor, leaving just a few final stairs to climb - brilliant if you've done some grocery shopping. We did not experience any problems with noise as other reviewers had mentioned, although it was low season when we visited. The owners were simply awesome and we will definitely be going back to stay in the apartment again. In fact, we wouldn't stay anywhere else."

Caribbean Travel Tips

The Caribbean Sea and its islands are full of splendor and magic. Also known as the West Indies, the Caribbean has long been a popular destination for honeymooners as well as retirees looking for a getaway. There’s almost always good weather in the Caribbean, and its close proximity to the U.S. makes it an affordable and easy place to visit.

The Caribbean At a glance

Cayman Islands

The Cayman Islands are surrounded by coral reefs and the bluest of waters. There are three islands to choose from, which are full of marine life. Not only can you swim with stingrays, but you can go diving with the most colorful fish that you’d only imagine existed in your dreams. The white sand beaches are postcard-perfect and include Seven Mile Beach, Rum Point and Point of Sand. Here, you can enjoy isolated lands and even pink sand at Point of Sand. If you want, you can choose from more than 200 scuba diving sites or hit the pier for a day of fishing. Looking for things to do outside of sitting on the beach all day? Take a tour of George Town, the capital city of the islands. You can also visit the Cayman Islands National Museum and learn more about the country’s culture. After a day full of fun, grab a meal at a local eatery and enjoy freshly caught fish or sit down for a sophisticated meal at an upscale restaurant. You can get a real taste of island cuisine with a bowl of conch chowder, which is a tomato-based soup comprised of sweet peppers, onions and salt pork or bacon.

Trinidad and Tobago

Trinidad and Tobago is one of the Caribbean’s most industrialized nations, and is also one of the most crowded due to tourists visiting the islands. You’ll find Hindustanis, Javanese, Lebanese, Africans and Creoles in Trinidad, while Tobago is more quiet and unspoiled. You haven’t done anything in Trinidad and Tobago until you’ve visited Maracas Bay and Turtle Beach. The beach didn’t get its name out of the blue, sunbathers enjoy sharing the sand with giant leatherback turtles and Maracas Bay offers clear waters near the capital.

Puerto Rico

Despite its smaller size, Puerto Rico is full of life and beauty. There are 4 million people that call the island home, and they are more than welcoming to visitors. You’ll find so much to do in Puerto Rico, including mountain hiking, a trip into rainforests and plenty of sun on its white sandy beaches. Since the island’s history dates back 500 years when it was still under Spanish rule, there’s plenty of history and museums to take in. In San Juan, you can visit three world-class museums before heading out for a night of shopping, dining and nightlife. Restaurants are plentiful in Puerto Rico, where you can enjoy stuffed crabs and chip-chip, a dish of clam-like shellfish with vegetables or ground meat. You should also try the fresh rum punch, which is flavored with locally produced Angostura Bitters.

Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic has the pleasure of enjoying a year-round summer. There are white beaches, crystal clear waters and Spanish colonial history that dates back 500 years. With a visit here, you may find yourself hanging out with locals and backpackers from small fishing villages. The most popular destination in the Dominican is Punta Cana, where you can enjoy a plethora of sunshine. If you want to go for a dive, head to Bayahibe for a great view of shipwrecks just beneath the water’s surface. You’ll find some of the world’s finest cigars in the region near Santiago, as well as a good bottle of rum. Harrison’s in Puerto Plata has jewelry, and there are plenty of art galleries in Altos de Chavon. Grab a seat at Santo Domingo for fresh rock lobster or braised red snapper, or head to Puerto Plata for all the crayfish and grilled shrimp kabobs your stomach can handle.

Jamaica

There's more to Jamaica than just reggae and Rastafarians. It’s full of white sandy beaches and year-round sunshine, mountains, rainforest and coffee, as well as friendly locals. Of course, there’s diving and snorkelling that will take your through coral reefs, garden grottoes and drop-offs. You can even go for a leisurely swim at Doctor’s Cave Beach or overlook Montego Bay on the hilltop at Rose Hall Great House. Don’t leave the island without a package of Blue Mountain coffee or Jamaican rum. Visitors can find colorful artwork at the Contemporary Art Centre in Kingston or head to the Craft Market in Negril for handmade items. There’s also the Things Jamaican outlet with several locations throughout the island, including Montego Bay and Harmony Hall.
