There is a great collection of stories in this week’s Caribbean Wrap Up. The most interesting story in my opinion is the inter-island Caribbean ferry story by Caribbean Journal. I couldn’t agree more that a ferry system similar to what they have in the Greek islands is needed for the Caribbean. Air travel through the Caribbean with LIAT is a headache on a good day.
Enjoy and cheers!
Caribbean Weekly Wrap Up
A Look at St. Lucia Distillers: We got a chance to visit St. Lucia for a look at the facility responsible for Chairman’s Reserve, Bounty and the Admiral Rodney line of rums. –Story by Rum Connection
Swimming With Pigs In The Bahamas: The island of Big Major Cay is located in Exuma in The Bahamas and is often described as uninhabited. However, it does have an unusual group of residents – a small population of feral pigs who have been living on the island for a number of years, leading to the island to be renamed by locals as Pig Beach or Pig Island. -Story by Caribbean & Co.
The Best-Kept Secret in Puerto Rico: It’s a long road, even longer once you get to Rincon. Before the sun set, my car passed through the large, red-yellow-technicolor Rincon welcome arch, and soon the only color left was night. –Story by Caribbean Journal
Case for an Eastern Caribbean Ferry: There’s no cheap travel within the Caribbean. Unlike Greece and other island archipelagos, virtually all travel within the Caribbean is by air. And as we all know, traveling by air within the Caribbean is, to put it mildly, “challenging”. –Story by Caribbean Journal
On the Market – Born to Rhumb Charter Boat: Born to Rhumb is a 15-passenger, Coast Guard-inspected charter boat that’s been operating on St. John for the past 10 years. –Story by News of St. John
