Caribbean Vacations

DO IT ALL ON THESE ISLANDS OF DIVERSITY

Whether you fashion yourself a luxury resort jet-setter, an adventurous eco-tourist, or a parent in search of a relaxing holiday the whole family can enjoy, look no farther than the beautiful isles of the Caribbean.

Just a short distance from the U.S. - yet seemingly a world away - the Caribbean offers emerald waters, sugary white-sand beaches and a host of beautiful resorts from Endless Vacations Rentals. Here you can explore underwater treasures, backpack through mountaintop jungles, browse an array of alluring shops and sample heavenly Caribbean cuisine.

The Bahamas offer some of the best options for family fun, as well as many other unique discoveries such as underwater caves, coral reefs and dreamy dunes. Bermuda's tidy pastel cottages and beautiful pink-sand beaches exude an air of sophistication. In the Dominican Republic, visitors looking to party, relax or explore are drawn to this country's impressive mountains, spectacular waterfalls and white sands.

These are just a few samples of what awaits you on the gorgeous islands of the Caribbean.

Bishop's Restaurant (Grand Bahama). For authentic cracked conch, fried grouper and other delectable home-cooked fare, come to this local favorite, a fair distance from the hustle and bustle of the all-inclusive resorts.

Play...

Sail St. Maarten .The marinas of St. Maarten rent watercraft of all types, from canoes to sailboats to speedboats. Deep-sea fishing trips can also be arranged, as well as visits to nearby islands. There's arguably no better place to explore the open water.

Count Basie Square (Grand Bahama). Port Lucaya's entertainment district is constantly abuzz with festivals, parades, concerts and more. Come for the calypso, or just sit and watch the yachts roll in.

Explore...

Grand Bahama's national parks. There are several national parks on Grand Bahama, including the Lucayan National Park (home to the one of the world's longest cave systems) and the Rand Nature Center (a bird-watcher's paradise).

Stingray City (Grand Cayman). Snorkel among tropical fish, coral reefs and graceful stingrays. The water at the Stingray City Sandbar is only three feet deep, allowing you the opportunity to easily feed and touch the Rays.

Shop...

Cayman Craft Market. Sample wood and leather goods crafted by local artisans at this central Georgetown marketplace, where everything feels uniquely Caymanian.

St. Maarten front and center. If you're not too distracted by the flower-filled courtyards, West Indian architecture and stunning ocean views, the duty-free shops lining Front Street offer a wide array of treasures - from electronics to fine leather to locally made arts and crafts.
