For the traveller planning to explore the Caribbean, there are many places of interest to visit, however, holidays are more often than not planned for a short period and one has to pick and choose a few must do things and must visit places to cover during a trip. There are seven places in the Caribbean that one should not miss out on during a tour to the region.
Soufriere Hills Volcano in Montserrat is one such attraction. The volcano is highly active but despite that many gather here to see it erupting and also the remnants of lava left by the previous eruptions. For those who are keen on finding out more there is the Montserrat Volcano Observatory, which keeps a close watch on the activities in the mountain region. It is a wonderful experience and is a definite ‘must visit.’
The Pitons, St. Lucia is a UNESCO world heritage site and has its own attractions including coral reefs and mountains as well as hot springs. Pitch Lake in Trinidad is another highlight amongst the seven natural wonders. A real amazing experience, its odorous and hissing liquid asphalt is regarded to be the only one of its kind in the world and some consider it to be the ugliest ever tourist attraction.
One should surely take a boat ride along the Bioluminescent Bay, Vieques, Puerto Rico to see the shining one-celled protozoa living in the bay which emanates light as a defense mechanism. When they shine at night the setting is truly magical. El Yunque Rain Forest, Puerto Rico is another highlight amongst the seven wonders. It is undoubtedly the most famous and the prettiest waterfall in the whole of the Caribbean. Avid snorkelers and marine life enthusiast should not miss the Bonaire National Marine Park. It is regarded to be the best protected reef area in the region and tourists can engage in a number of water based activities here.
Tourists exploring the region can stay at one of the Turks and Caicos luxury resorts or choose a Turks and Caicos beach resort such as Parrot Cay Turks & Caicos and enjoy the best of Private Island living while exploring the many attractions in the region.
