Top Destinations for Caribbean Travel
Worldwide Destinations: The geography of travel and tourism is an intriguing book which explores worldwide tourism need, distribution, organisation and facilities for each country around the world. Authors Nancy A. Fitzsimons and Frank A. Smith show how much is known about each destination and less about others. Both authors maintain that destination selection depends on priorities such as climate, security issues, transport links and the standard of local people. The book divides destinations into six broad categories, each divided into at least two and often more, to allow easy comparison across time periods and places.
In Europe, Great Britain, France, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, Belgium, Eastern Europe, the Czech Republic and Poland, destinations can be broadly classified as historic destinations, cultural/heritage destinations, beach destinations, mountain destinations and inland destinations. The book notes that although some destinations fall into more than one category, major themes remain common. These include: peace and social progress, historical/holidays themes, industrial developments, tourism development, wildlife and plants, climate change, ethnic and religious/places of importance.
USA: America’s vast landmass offers a wide diversity of worldwide destinations. Most states in the US fall into one of three general destinations categories: the upper mid-west, the west coast or the upper south-east. The western states have abundant sunshine, urban populations, higher per capita income levels and some of the most beautiful landscapes in the country. The upper mid-west, with its rich natural and cultural resources, offers vast opportunities for hiking, canoeing, boating and fishing. The west coast, the home of the west coast states’ most scenic and diverse inland location, give unique access to ocean beaches, national parks, mountains, forests and valleys. Finally, the upper south-eastern states, home of the historic places and tourist attractions, has wonderful geographical conditions offering opportunities to bird-watch, canoe, horse ride, ice-skating and hiking.
Western Caribbean: With its landscape similar to that of the US, the western Caribbean is perfect for both nature lovers and adventure seekers. It is also home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world as well as some of the most magnificent natural areas. Caribbean travelers are very likely to find spectacular scenery such as rain forest areas, coral reefs, volcanic islands and underwater volcanoes. Some of the most popular winter sport destinations include Aruba, Barbados, St. Lucia, Turks & Caicos and Bermuda. For those looking for extreme adventures, the west coast of Caracas in Venezuela offers some of the best beach areas in the region.
Oceanic Islands: Some of the most diverse destinations in the world are scattered across the tropical Pacific Ocean. There are four different types of islands: uninhabited islands, island groupings, cays and bays. Each destination features its own characteristics that add charm and uniqueness to the traveler’s experience.
These are just a few of the most popular destinations in the Caribbean. Each of the destinations has its own unique history, culture and tradition. Caribbean travel destinations have always been considered among the most popular travel destinations in the world. The Caribbean offers something for everyone. From history and culture to wildlife and beaches, the Caribbean can be enjoyed no matter what your taste or interest. There is no doubt that you will enjoy your trip to the Caribbean.
