While pristine beaches and clear blue waters are the biggest draw of the Southern Caribbean islands, there are a variety of activities to try.
Experience the natural wonders of Aruba, and visit places like the butterfly farm or the Aruba Aloe Balm facility. Aruba also offers fantastic opportunities for scuba diving. See the wreck of a World War II German freighter or the beautiful coral reefs that are teeming with aquatic life.
In Barbados, take a 4x4 adventure and encounter the Green Monkey. This charming animal is responsible for 70% of the world’s Polio vaccine. Or, take an aerial trek zipline adventure and enjoy beautiful views of the island as you zip through the trees. Hikers can venture into Coals Cave and marvel at the naturally formed sculptures within the walls of this underground wonder.
Try a cooking workshop in Curacao and learn how to make delicious Caribbean dishes, then sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Take a kayaking adventure and paddle through the Spanish Water. Drive through Curacao’s nature terrain on a jeep safari and see some of the wildlife that make their home on the island.
Of course, there will be plenty of time to relax on the beach. Brighton Beach in Barbados, Seaquarium Beach in Curacao and Grand Anse Beach in Grenada are some of the best beaches in the Caribbean.
