Cancun Airport Transportation
 
5.0
"Good transportation, they were on time for the arrival at the airport and for the departure at the lobby of the hotel."
Aventura Mexicana Hotel
 
4.9
"This is a lovely hotel located just off the beach in Playa del Carmen. It's a beautiful small hotel. Rooms are nice. Lovely courtyard with pool. Very reasonable rates. Excellent and courteous staff. The restaurant, Mayan Bristo, serves some delicious food. If you're looking to stay in town in Playa, this is a great choice."
True Blue Bay Resort
 
4.7
"This is an absolutely lovely hotel in Grenada. Rooms were very clean, the grounds were beautiful and the breakfast provided each morning was great. The resort is clean, the staff is friendly and helpful and the views are spectacular! True Blue Bay Resort is probably one of finest boutique small hotels in the Caribbean. Fabulous location, excellent rooms, terrific facilities, friendly and attentive..."
Mahekal Beach Resort
 
4.9
"Mahekal Beach Resort is a great little beach front resort. I was traveling with two other friends and we all loved it. The cabana was just fine, though nothing special. But it's the location! The food at the resort was pretty good, service good, quality staff. I would go back here anytime. Usually I fly into Cancun and go to Playa..."
Stingray City
 
4.5
"This excursion was fantastic! The water is so clear. The stingrays were amazing - almost dancing with us all in about 3 feet of water out on the sandbar."
Palancar Caves
 
4.7
"I LOVE Palacar Reef...and I especially love Palacar Caves. The coral heads are massive - creating huge swim throughs. Weaving in and out and then drifting along side the reef as the wall drops off into infinity. Love it."
Marigot Beach Club Hotel & Dive Resort
 
4.5
"The hotel is in a beautiful location, on a beautiful bay. The room was pretty and functional, with a nice little kitchen and bathroom. If you are looking for huge 5 star resort, this is not the resort for you. The resort is small and very island like - with a terrific ambiance and view. Our room was very comfortable and our terrace looked..."

Wisconsin Carribean Holiday Seekers
"Huge, but beautiful and spotless.Missed not having a beach. Food was very good, staff was very freindly and helpful. Rooms were spacious, really enjoyed the hammocks and the liquor dispensors. Room service was prompt and delicous. Plan on walking, this place is spread out, but we didn't mind the walk. Was easy making reservations for dining and excursions as well. We took an excursion to..."

"I have been to OTI many times. I like the small size of the hotel, beautiful grounds and competent staff. It is walking distance to town where you can find some great restaurants. www.ballahoo.com The hotel is set in tranquil tropical gardens, overlooking Basseterre and Nevis (view is magnificent), and OTI offers personalized service, clean..."

"Our 2nd time at AV - 3rd time at a Palace Resort. We went with 2 other couples and had a great time! The service was awesome and the resort is beatiful! The Spa is the best I've ever been too. Had a massage in an oceanview bungalow. Very relaxing and pampering! Very much needed in this stressful world!..."

  • Saba: Saba's amazing landscape ignites a travelers imagination
    Saba: Saba's amazing landscape ignites a travelers imagination It was a hot and humid summer day in the Caribbean and the wind was up. Just moments after Winair's de Havilland Twin-Otter bumpily took off from St. Maarten, the tiny island of Saba, just a 10-minute flight away, rose like a scepter from the floor of the crystal-blue Caribbean.

  • Experience the small Islands of the Caribbean.
    Experience the small Islands of the Caribbean. Caribbean islands by their very nature epitomize a perfect vacation getaway.

  • The Best Stunning Dive Sites in the Caribbean
    The Best Stunning Dive Sites in the Caribbean We have long said that "you don't need a dive resort to go diving in the Caribbean." But it sure helps. A great dive resort is not the same for everyone; some want luxury; some want function; some want value. Some people are looking for adventure and some are looking for relaxation, while some demand a beach.

  • Exploring the Historical Allure of Cuba
    Exploring the Historical Allure of Cuba Soon after arriving in Cuba in 1511, conquistador Diego Velázquez de Cuellar set about founding seven pioneering villas (towns) in the new colony with the aim of subjugating the restless Taíno natives. Four of Velázquez's villas - Trinidad, Sancti Spíritus, Camagüey, and Santiago de Cuba - were given major facelifts over the past couple of years to coincide with their quincentennials.

  • The Best Places to Wildlife Watch in the Caribbean
    The Best Places to Wildlife Watch in the Caribbean Wildlife watching is a tricky business. Days can be spent fruitlessly scanning the savannah for lions or holed up in a hide hoping to catch a glimpse of a rare bird. But for travellers with limited time (or patience), there are places where animals are not just easy to spot, they are impossible to miss.

    The Best Locales to See Mayan Ruins on Your Trip The ropes are there to keep the humans out, but the iguanas have no intention of paying attention to them. They roam the ancient Mayan city of Tulum​ with impunity, scuttling up the steps if they wish, but mainly lying out on the grass to catch the sun.

  • Tulum a Lovely Stay Without the Rush
    Tulum a Lovely Stay Without the Rush It's midnight in Mexico, and my husband and I are sitting silently in the back seat of a small grey car, about an hour and a half from where we want to be - Tulum. We're on edge, because we're pretty sure the two guys in the front seat, whom we met at the Cancun airport a few minutes ago, are scamming us.

    Martinique: VIDEO: Finding a Little Shade on the Beach in Martinique Anses d'Arlets - it's arguably the beach capital of Martinique, and tucked away in the corner of the main beach in town is a tiny collection of beach bars and restaurants. They all have their own claims to fame: fish, ti' punch, accras. But sometimes you just need a little shade.

  • The Best Carnivals in the Caribbean
    The Best Carnivals in the Caribbean Swept away in a sea of feather headdresses as sequins ping from overtight costumes, few travellers stop to wonder why carnivals exist. These riots of pre-Lenten revelry demand to be experienced rather than understood. Their common element is a gleeful up-ending of social norms, making them among the world's most memorable travel experiences.
