Caribbean Weekly Wrap Up

March, my favorite month of the year. Warm temps have officially invaded southwest Florida, Spring Break is in the air, March Madness is gearing up, and St. Patrick’s Day is just a couple weeks away. Yeah, March kicks ass.

But I would trade all the joys of this month for an island hopping adventure that took me to the places in this week’s Caribbean Wrap Up! St. Lucia, St. Maarten, St. Barths–it’s a St. Somewhere party!

Enjoy the Caribbean escape!

Caribbean Weekly Wrap Up

Saint Lucia: An insider’s View: The Caribbean in general and Saint Lucia in particular has changed almost beyond recognition during the past 40 years. Back in 1973 tourism in Saint Lucia was in its infancy, we had no charter flights, very few package tours and limited air lift. –Story by

St. Maarten’s Best Beach Bar: Today’s trip is all about tranquility. Which is how my husband and I find ourselves the lone passengers in a cab headed 20 minutes across the island to Simpson Bay’s… –Story by JetSetSarah

The 10 Best Caribbean Airports – 2015: These days, getting there isn’t always half the fun. Long lines and having to practically undress at the Security checkpoint can make flying more fraught than fab. Which is why we love transiting through these Caribbean hubs, which take the drudgery out of departing with perks every passenger can appreciate. Here are is our annual Best Caribbean Airports ranking, with a new name at the top. –Story by Caribbean Journal

Pooping in Paradise: You know how they say cruising is really just “fixing boats in exotic places?” (That is true btw.) Well, we would also add that cruising with pets is mostly just “letting your dog poop in exotic places.” –Story by LahoWind

The 3-Day Cheat Sheet To St. Bart’s: The truth is, St. Bart’s (officially Saint Barthélemy, if you want to get French about it) is a truly magical, Eden-like place. Given my previous notions about this tiny, clandestine island, I was inspired to go by my friend. –Story by
