2010 has been a good year here at RSR. We have made lots of new friends (Castaways) and have continued to live the island lifestyle to the best of our ability. A big part of running this blog is reading. I constantly browse the interweb looking for new and fun Caribbean sites that I can learn from. Needless to say there is a lot of great Caribbean Travel blogs out there and the number is growing.  It’s hard to keep up with them all. I wish I could because I love following people’s island adventures and looking at their beautiful pictures. They charge my engine and keep me excited about life in the islands.

To close out the year I thought I’d give you a list of the top Island Lifestyle Blogs that I read. Each one of them has a great person or team behind it and will give you great insight in to their part of the Caribbean or their unique niche.

The list is in no particular order. Don’t be offended if you aren’t on the list. I read a lot more than just these, I just can’t list hundreds of blogs. If you have an Island/Beach/Caribbean style blog and would like to be mentioned just leave a comment and link below and I’ll check you out. Always looking for more island info! I soak up the stuff like a good rum.
