With hundreds of sun-drenched islands to choose from, it's easier than ever to enjoy laid-back Caribbean holidays all year-round. Boasting exotic beaches, crystal-clear waters and luxury all-inclusive resorts, Caribbean holidays are simply the best for families, couples and groups looking for tropical escapes and winter sun. The Caribbean Islands are located in the south east of the Gulf of Mexico and North America. A cluster of 700 islands, reefs, cays and islets, the Caribbean Islands fall on the Caribbean Plate, allowing for temperatures to range between 24-29°C year-round.
Soak up the rays on the Dominican Republic’s palm-fringed beaches, dive into watersports in Antigua, bask in Barbados' climate, lap up island life in St Lucia or hit Jamaica for a truly carnival atmosphere – holidays in the Caribbean are unforgettable. Each island is brimming with fun and glamour with lively beach bars, stylish waterfront restaurants and amazing views to savour from coast to coast! If you're dreaming of diving with turtles, cruising on catamarans, fishing in the deep blue sea or kayaking to secret coves, there is a perfect Caribbean holiday to suit your tastes.
The best time to visit Caribbean Islands may depend on your budget and the holiday destination you have your eye on. Barbados, Saint Martin Island, Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Puerto Rico are best visited during the months of May to June, as well as late November to mid-December, since there are fewer crowds and the rates are comparatively much cheaper. Among all the islands, the most famous international airports are Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport in Puerto Rico, Punta Cana International Airport in the Dominican Republic and José Martí International Airport in Cuba.
