Aruba is a destination for all ages. On one hand, you will find family friendly resorts and on the other, you will find casinos and a bustling nightlife. Aruba differs from the rest of the Caribbean islands in terms of the landscape as it has a desert-like appearance. This is not found in any of the other islands. But if you want a different experience of Aruba, you have to venture a little away from the touristy places. Small isolated beaches are located at the extreme ends of the island. The terrain is slightly rugged and is coupled by a constant strong breeze. These small beaches are perfect for taking a hike or for going on a horse ride. If history is what catches your eye, then you can feast your eyes on the many shipwrecks. Or you can simply stand quietly on the beach and enjoy the tropical breeze.
Barbados is a multifaceted destination. Apart from a multitude of accommodation options, it offers plenty of activities to tourists. The best thing about Barbados is that it can accommodate every type of tourist – whether budget or luxury. The most popular tourist attraction on the island is the capital city of Bridgetown. Dating back to the 17th century, the town is quite the historical attraction. Another popular attraction is ‘Harrison’s Cave’, which is an amazing natural formation. Local residents, known as Bajans, are down-to-earth and friendly souls. Known to welcome visitors with a smile, they will make you feel special. Once you travel to Barbados, you will feel like going back there again and again.

Puerto Rico is home to the ‘El Yunque’, which is the only tropical rainforest in the US.
Jamaica is a well known destination and attracts different types of tourists. Many nature lovers come to the island for bird watching. Many others come to witness the Reggae music culture, which was founded on the island. Many budget travelers come because Jamaica offers many options to suit their pockets.
