Pinkies up, Caribbean lovers! Because despite the balmy weather, the ritual of afternoon tea is alive and well in the Caribbean – and not just in formerly British destinations, either.

So when you’re ready for a scrumptious post-lunch, pre-dinner pick-me-up, consider our choice of the top Caribbean hotels for afternoon tea.
