Our annual Where to Travel list isn’t about the Caribbean you know. It’s about the Caribbean you have yet to discover. This is all about the places you may have never thought about, destinations that will fascinate you and move you; it’s about finding your new Caribbean. And this year we’ve gone even deeper, highlighting not just islands or cities but specific places and specific neighborhoods that will make your 2017 travel experience that much richer. This is where to travel in the Caribbean in 2017.
Trois Ilets, Martinique
Martinique isn’t the Caribbean you’re used to. It’s a fascinating, intoxicating place that rewards travelers who journey outside their comfort zone. It’s a place for culture, food and endless discovery. Trois Ilets is the island’s travel hub, with a central location that makes it the perfect jumping off point to explore places like the beaches of Les Anses d’Arlet, the stunning capital, Fort de France, and then try visiting any of the island’s whopping 11 rhum distilleries.
