Trinidad’s old town
Trinidad de Cuba is a small, friendly place with a long history as a centre for sugar cane farming. Its charming coastal setting, lovingly restored facades and gentle pace of life can be experienced in any of the town’s beautiful squares and in the narrow, historic alleyways. This small town has a well-deserved place on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list.
The spirited music of Cuba
If Cuba is the birthplace of almost every Latin dance style, then Santiago de Cuba is the stage on which they are performed. Nowhere else will you find so much live music or dancing. In the town’s clubs, bars and dance schools, the rhythms of salsa, son and rumba are omnipresent and just as thrilling as in the world-famous Buena Vista Social Club.
Port Antonio – natural beauty in Jamaica
Known for its reggae, Rastafarians and rum, Jamaica has many magical and serene natural settings to offer alongside its rousing rhythms. Port Antonio in the northeast is the spot on the island with the most beautiful scenery. With its perfect beaches, lush tropical vegetation and countless caves, rivers and waterfalls, the area surrounding this small colonial town has been a celebrity hotspot since the nineteen-forties, attracting famous visitors like Errol Flynn and providing the exotic backdrop for a number of films.
The British Virgin Islands – a sailor’s paradise
With more than 60 islands and reefs (of which only 16 are inhabited), the British Virgin Islands are a real dream destination. Fans of sailing from all around the world are drawn to their idyllic and tropically warm waters; and the quaint beach bars bring together everyone from luxury yacht owners to solo sailors. It is so easy to get used to the carefree lifestyle; and with your feet in the sand as you gaze out over green hills and the tranquil sea, you will soon forget about the stresses of everyday life back home.
Luxury in a relaxed atmosphere on St Barths
Known for attracting a certain class of visitor, St Barthé- lemy has been a top holiday destination for the rich and famous ever since billionaire David Rockefeller discovered the island back in the nineteen-sixties.
St Barths is all about quality not quantity, so you are more likely to brush shoulders with Hollywood stars
than with tourists on its 22 white sandy beaches. In the capital Gustavia, houses with red roofs nestled into the green hills look just like rows of spectators in an amphitheatre, transforming the idyllic port into an impressive stage. As you walk along the luxurious promenade, you will be sure to pass by some spectacular yachts.
