Caribbean Weekly Wrap Up

Bahamian Peas n’ Rice Recipe: One of the most popular nights here is “Bahamian Night”. This is the night when the chef prepares traditional Bahamian food. Bahamian cuisine has a similarity to Southern cooking, but with a distinct island flare! –Story by Small Hope Bay

St. Martin’s Pinel Island: But sometimes you want to get away and see something different. I have just the place for you if you go to St. Martin. Pinel Island. It’s not hard to find. At one of the roundabouts between the Orient Beach Area and Marigot which is the main city on the French side, you will see a sign saying Pinel Island with an arrow. Nothing fancy. Nothing on this island is fancy (one of the reasons I love it there). Take the turn and look for other signs leading you to the ferry dock for Pinel Island. –Story by Uncover Your Caribbean

How On Earth Did This Get Here: There’s a mystery lurking underneath the water just off of Hawksnest. A rather large Buddha recently appeared over near the reef, and no one seems to know how it got there. –Story by News of St. John

The Best Puerto Rico Hotels: What’s not to love about the “isle of enchantment?” Visitors rightly rave about Puerto Rico’s diversity, a unique and fascinating blend of African, Spanish and other European influences that’s reflected in its history, food, arts and culture. And with no passport required for U.S. citizens; frequent flights from the US mainland; and an American dollar-based economy, Puerto Rico is a slam-dunk for a quick getaway or a longer stay. And after you touch down, here’s where we recommend you check in. These are the Best Puerto Rico Hotels. –Story by Caribbean Journal

A Look At San Pedro, Belize: This is what happens when you fly a drone over Belize’s San Pedro. – Story by Oyster.com
