Ice, snow, polar vortexes…I think it’s time to mix a rum drink and hop a fast plane to the lower latitudes. If the cold weather doesn’t have you dreaming about the islands, this Caribbean Wrap Up will. Seclusion on Andros, bird watching in Jamaica, rum bar beach bars, and a St. Lucian resort that boggles the imagination–there’s plenty of motivation here to keep you a few degrees warmer.

Caribbean Weekly Wrap Up

The Caribbean’s Best Beach Rum Bar: We’ve long extolled the virtues of the rum bar in these pages: that is, bars that go beyond trivial cocktail rum and offer a serious, diverse offering of rums on the menu.

But many people do not know that bird watching in Jamaica is another past time that has quietly flown under the radar. Now, the secret is out. –Story by Endless Caribbean

These special rums, including selections from some of the world’s leading rum experts, range from mixers appropriate for the finest cocktails to spirits to be sipped and savored whether you’re celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, or just the joys of the holiday season. –Story by
