On the road for vacationers many signs point towards Antigua. The island has a warm feel, steady winds, a complex coastline of safe harbours and a protective nearly unbroken wall of coral reef. The perfect place to hideaway, so much so in fact that in 1784 the legendary Admiral Nelson sailed to Antigua and established Great Britain's most important base. Little did he know that over 200 years later, those said same unique geographical features, would transform Antigua and Barbuda into one of the Caribbean's premier tourist destinations.

It has colonial villages (Gracias, Comayagua), ancient Maya ruins (Copan), natural parks (Moskitia), and a Pacific and Caribbean coastline and the Bay Islands, with great beaches and coral reefs where snorkeling and diving are exceptional by any standard. The Bay Islands are perhaps the country's biggest drawing card.

Intoxicating natural beauty, sunny skies, warm waters, and white sandy beaches combine to make St. Kitts one of the most seductive spots in the Caribbean. Christopher Columbus first spotted St. Kitts in 1493, when it was populated with native tribes, but the Europeans didn't colonize until the British arrived in 1623. Its strategic location and valuable sugar trade led to an advanced and luxurious development that was among the best in the Colonial Caribbean. Lush and luxuriant, the exotic tropical island is a romantic paradise. Wonderful beaches remain relatively crowd-free, and nature lovers delight in seeing lava formations, tropical forest and lagoons and underwater marvels while snorkeling or diving.

St. Lucia is the sort of island that travellers to the Caribbean dream about--a small, lush tropical gem that is still relatively unknown. One of the Windward Islands of the Lesser Antilles, it is located midway down the Eastern Caribbean chain, between Martinique and St. Vincent, and north of Barbados. St. Lucia is only 27 miles long and 14 miles wide, with a shape that is said to resemble either a mango or an avocado (depending on your taste). The Atlantic Ocean kisses its eastern shore, while the beaches of the west coast owe their beauty to the calm Caribbean Sea.

The smallest island in the world ever to be partitioned and shared by two countries, St. Martin/St. Maarten is truly a charming little getaway. Though the border is literally imperceptible with people crossing to and from unknowingly both sides have managed to maintain their national identities in a most welcoming way. On the French side the smell of fresh croissants, good wine and escargots can be found amongst the open air bistros of the city. While on the Dutch side, one can find that all too familiar informal and accepting atmosphere; accompanied by the modern need for choice in fashion, convenience and lifestyle. Make no mistake whether you seek the fanciful or the fanfare, St. Martin/ St. Maarten is definitely the place to be.
