Although the Caribbean is blessed with plentiful white sand beaches and turquoise waters for you to relax and enjoy, it’s always exciting to try something new such as scuba diving.
If you fancy a break from topping up your tan, Feet Do Travel share 5 awesome things to do in the Caribbean.
One of the best things to do in the Caribbean is scuba diving, and the waters of the Caribbean are warm and with crystal clear visibility. Not certified to dive? There are many diving schools who can train you, and once you have seen what the underwater world has to offer, your future holidays will never be the same again!
The Caribbean boasts some of the best diving in the world; Cayman Islands, Mexico, Bonaire, Tobago and St Lucia to name a few.
The Caribbean has many lush tropical rainforests which you can explore. Dominica is a volcanic island with vibrant green landscapes where you can see dormant volcanoes, secluded waterfalls, rare wildlife, and other awesome things. If you are concerned about being lost, hire a guide or take a tour which will keep you safe, but also teach you about the surrounding area.
When we visited Dominica we did the Roseau Valley Treasures tour with Bumpiing Tours. They took us to Ti Tou Gorge; a freshwater pool inside a cave used in the Hollywood Blockbuster movie “Pirates of the Caribbean 2”.
Wakeboarding is an adrenaline filled activity to try when visiting the Caribbean. A mix between waterskiing and snowboarding, there are several locations for trying this exhilarating sport, for example Trinidad and Tobago, or Turks and Caicos If you are lucky enough to have your own boat Aerial Wakeboarding have numerous wakeboard tower options.
If you want an experience to remember and want to splash out, take a flight on a seaplane! You can fly from Miami or Fort Lauderdale to the Bahamas, a bucket list tick off for many travellers.
There are some things to know when flying in a seaplane, for example it is nosier than you may think, but what a ride you will encounter!
After taking a seaplane to the Bahamas, you should head to Big Major Cay and swim in the ocean with wild pigs.
Although it’s a natural encounter, the pigs are not endemic to the island. It is unsure how they arrived in the Bahamas but theories are they were left by sailors, or swam to the beach surviving a ship wreck.
