  • Second great stay at Paradise Villas

    "I just returned from my second trip to San Pedro and to Paradise Villas. This time, my husband came with me and he thought it was great! He grew up on a Pacific island and Ambergris reminded him of his village where he grew up. We'd had a rough year and relaxing in the slow pace of Belize was just what we needed. Cindy and Nellie have everything taken care of for you - the unit is clean, maid service daily, all the comforts of home. I've already talked him into coming back for a longer stay next year. Thanks so much!"

  • Spring Break 2014

    "All can say is WOW! My wife, three college kids and I rented this boat for spring break 2014. We came back with memories of a life time! Roy (the owner) did a great job of making all arrangements and reservations. His itinerary was awesome. (We did make a couple of minor changes - which were no problem). The boat is roomy, comfortable and FUN! The Exuma's are beautiful. You wont find water more clear and crystal blue anywhere. Make sure you get Todd and Dana as the crew. They are the best. I can see this venue for families with elementary school kids to all the way up to grandparents with their kids. For your final night you MUST do dinner on the beach at Aviva."

  • It Doesn't get any better than this!

    "Our family of 5 arrived in Bonaire 3 flights and 24 hours after leaving our home in Canada. The InSel Air flight was only 13 minutes and we were lucky to not experience any problems with that airline, unlike some other reviewers have mentioned. That being said, we did have to go through about 4 incredibly long lines in Curacao before we could get on our InSel fight. The 13 minute flight was a bit of a hoot for us as our other 2 flights are over 4 and 5 hours each! We were definitely happy to see Jerome at the airport waiting for us, and he was great! It was dark out and he took us to get our car, which we rented from home He helped us get our groceries for the evening and he led us to the rental house. It was very clean, spacious, private, wonderfully decorated and the gardens were gorgeous! It had the best stocked kitchen I have ever seen in a rental property and we stay in about 5 every year. The pool and deck areas were just awesome. We all enjoyed the Humming Birds and Parakeets visiting throughout the day. I rarely even go in the pools on our vacations. I was in this one several times every day of our 14 day stay, much to the surprise of my family. It was so warm, clean and well maintained! The outdoor shower was a great convenience as was the hanging area for my husbands' scuba equipment. The snorkeling and diving were phenomenal just down the steps from the house. Our family saw turtles about 5 times and so many other fish and wonderful things I can't even begin to list them! It Rains Fishes was probably our favorite restaurant for food. We ate barracuda several times - we did not even know it was a fish that people eat! I prepared it for two of our dinners at the villa, after our deep sea fishing trip, which we highly recommend! We would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone and we can't wait to go back! In fact, we wish that we were still there!"

  • Fabulous!

    "Our family of 5 stayed here for 4 days and were very, very pleased. From the house, it is a short walk to the entrance to the Baths and the Mad Dog eatery. In the backyard are some wonderful boulders that are fun to climb. The various decks and patios are a delight to have dinner or late night drinks on. The kitchen had everything you need. We would have preferred air conditioning, but there were ample fans to keep you cool enough. Howard was a pleasure to work with, answering every question and meeting us at the dock and putting a few things in the fridge to start us off. The ability to go the Baths early and late, thus avoiding the boat crowd, was magical. Howard had mentioned that the 5th and 6th beds were child-sized, but our 5'4" daughter slept comfortably enough in one of them, with an inch or two to spare."

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.
