HOW TO BOOK THE BEST CARIBBEAN VACATION
Traveling to the Caribbean does not need to be all about ‘package holidays’. Sometimes in life, you have to treat yourself to the best that life has to offer and why not! Yes, the Caribbean is seen as ‘millionaires paradise’ but that does not mean that you have to be a millionaire to get there. Here are some tips on Maximising your Buck and enjoying the luxury vacation in the condo, villa, or apartment of your dreams on an island in the Caribbean of pure Paradise…
Do your research online to find the TYPE of island you will like best. They all have lovely sandy beaches, beautiful palm trees, and blue waters. But what kind of CULTURE would you like to experience? Latin (Puerto Rico, Cuba)? French (St Martin, Guadaloupe)? Dutch (Curacao, Saba)? British (British Virgin Islands, Anguilla, St Kitts). Each will have its type of food and religion and history. So choose a language and culture that will also interest you as well as the beaches!
Closely linked to culture are activities. Saba is all about climbing and beautiful forests, Cuba has a little of everything, St Martin is renowned for tax-free goods, partying and the Heineken Regatta! What other activities do you want to undertake besides snorkeling, boating, and fishing (available on all islands!!)

So check out what currency is accepted and if they do deals with Euro or the currency you use. Can you pay on arrival rather than with a credit card and receive a better value pricing …
