Destination guide

Is this heaven on earth? No, it's just the Caribbean!

Feel the need to unwind in an island paradise? Book a Caribbean vacation rental and you can soak up the sun in a tropical landscape dotted with more than 700 islands, islets, reefs, and cays. It's the perfect location to simply relax on the sandy shores of a beach with a cocktail in 1 hand and a book in the other, or cool off in the warm, clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. If you long for a bit more action, spend your days swimming through coral reefs and exploring old colonial towns, before dancing until dawn in trendy nightclubs.

Activities

Splish splash, you'll be having some fun

Most activities in the Caribbean take place in the water, including such popular pastimes as scuba diving, snorkeling, sailing, windsurfing, and deep-sea fishing. If you haven't earned your sea legs yet, try your hand at golfing, hiking, cycling, and horseback riding, or sunbathe on 1 of the Caribbean's countless beaches. Embrace local cultures with a reggae concert at a Jamaican dancehall or by pausing to listen to steel-pan street musicians in Trinidad and Tobago. True thrill seekers can tour the region in a helicopter or swoop through the air over Puerto Rico's Central Mountains on the world's longest zip line.

Weather

Come on in, the water (and the weather) is fine!

No matter what time of year you book your Caribbean vacation rental, you're almost guaranteed to enjoy sunshine and warm weather. Temperatures range from the 80s and 90s throughout the year, with northern islands, like the Bahamas, Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic, more likely to experience "cold fronts" that bring temperatures in the 70s. You'll want to make sure you always pack your swimsuit as the water temperatures hover between 88 and 72 degrees throughout the year. The second-half of the year receives more rain than the first half and hurricane season typically lasts from June to November.

Natural features

From valleys to volcanoes, and everything in between

While you might picture nothing but white sand beaches and aqua sea waters, the Caribbean offers a remarkably diverse terrain. For starters, on land, you'll see dormant volcanoes, lush valleys, majestic waterfalls, palm trees, and tropical flowers as far as the eye can see. In the water, coral reefs and seagrass meadows dot the landscape, while sharks, stingrays, and sea turtles swim about. Bird watchers should carve out time to visit Codrington Lagoon National Park, home to 1 of the world's largest colonies of frigate birds, as well as a host of pelicans, terns, and gulls.
