Sun, sea and sand aren’t the only things you can enjoy on a Caribbean vacation. Beyond the beach lie remnants of a bygone era that remind us of where we’ve come from as a region, and even today influence where we’re going. But you don’t have to visit a fort or museum to get in touch with the Caribbean’s storied heritage. Just book a room at any of these legendary resorts, and enjoy a dose of history with your holiday. CJ Travel Editor Sarah Greaves-Gabbadon has the story.
