Do you have a Caribbean trip planned? If you do then you know the joy of having something to look forward to. You begin counting the days, planning on what to pack, researching places to visit and foods to eat–the build up to an island escape is nearly (nearly) as much fun as the trip itself.

If you don’t have a trip planned, then I highly recommend you grab a calendar and start marking off days. It could be a quick weekend hiatus, or a week long adventure. Whatever your groove…just do it.

If you’re looking for ideas then maybe this week’s Caribbean wrap up will spark the flame of inspiration. Maybe a rum tour in Martinique, a private island escape, the 365 beaches of Antigua, or some off-the-beaten track fun in Jamaica. The Caribbean is your oyster, just go.
