The first thing that any traveler should realize about Caribbean is that due to the huge number of islands it is practically impossible to see a lot of destinations on your vacation. So , you should prioritize your must-see list by asking some questions, such as “What do I want to see now?”, and “What can wait until the next trip?”. A very good way to see the Caribbean for the first time and cover quite a lot of things is by to enjoy a Caribbean Tour which takes you to most (if not all) must-see locations on your list.

Getting around the Caribbean
Choosing the right transport for you definitely depends on which islands you’ll be visiting. On most of the large ones, renting a car is definitely the best choice. Others have excellent public transport, so taking the buses will solve the problem. Renting a bike or a scooter might prove versatile as well. Whatever you choose make sure to always get a map of the city/island before you start exploring on your own. And don’t assume you can always relay on the GPS.
