DON’T JUST visit the Caribbean this year. Experience it. Go outside of your comfort zone and find something new. That’s the advice of our Where to Travel list for 2015, featuring some of our favourite places in the Caribbean: some are a bit off the beaten path, some a bit new, some a bit different. Some are more untouched, others are undiscovered parts of more established destinations. All are just begging to be explored. Here is our Where to Travel list for 2015.
We’ve long been big fans of this French Caribbean island, blessed with lush scenery, magnificent food, one of the most vibrant cultures in the region and, of course, its 11 rum distilleries. It’s as diverse a tourism product as you’ll find. And now it’s easier to get to than ever before, with direct flights from Miami that will increase in frequency in 2015. Simply put, Martinique isn’t the Caribbean you know. It’s an exotic, foreign, beautiful island that will make you love traveling all over again. For luxe accommodations, try the Cap-Est Lagoon Resort; for a boutique gem, it’s the Hotel Plein Soleil, or for a more affordable stay try the Villa Saint-Pierre in the historic town of Saint-Pierre.
