Island Hopping in the Caribbean

With so many islands to choose from in the Caribbean, it’s hard to settle on just one paradise. Instead of booking multiple hotels and dealing with the hassle of extra travel, it’s much easier to see more of these picturesque islands by taking a relaxing Caribbean cruise. No matter what area of the Caribbean you visit, you’ll be treated to white sand beaches, turquoise waters and the soothing sound of waves crashing against the beach. Here are some of my favorite ports that make island hopping in the Caribbean an unforgettable experience:

St. Thomas

When visiting St. Thomas, jump on a safari cab and wind around the hilly eastern part of the island. It’s a great way to blend in and become part of the local scenery.


If you are a guest at the Four Seasons, enjoy the experience the thrill of the catch by diving and catching the elusive Nevisian spiny lobster. You’ll then learn how to prepare and cook it, and enjoy it as part of a sumptuous seafood feast.


Take swimming with the dolphins to a whole new level at the Atlantis Resort, by being propelled by a pair of dolphins (1 per foot) across the lagoon by what is appropriately called the “foot push.”

Puerto Rico

In Mosquito Bay, find a magical experience for all ages as tiny bioluminescent organisms, which dart away from moving objects, leave phosphorescent blue-white trails like microscopic underwater glow-worms surround you.

Dominican Republic

Between January and mid-March, 80% of the world’s humpback whale population mates and calves in the Bay of Samana. Whale-watching is a must!


Take and open train deep into Harrison’s Cave, a crystallized limestone cavern, where there is a magnificent array of stalactites and stalagmites.
