Ever been standing in the rum aisle, eyes glazed over, wondering which rum you should try? We all have. In this week’s Caribbean Wrap Up Bahama Bob talks about the Houston Chronicle’s list of the top 100 rums under $100. A good list but some notable rums are missing.
After that, find out how you will soon be able to fly direct to the BVI from Miami, sailing adventures around St. Barths, explore the other side of Jamaica, and last but not least, how to stay hydrated in the BVI.
Enjoy the escape!
Caribbean Weekly Wrap Up
Ocho Rios, Jamaica: the other side of the island: When we are in Jamaica, we try to get off the resort to experience some of the real Jamaica. We hired a driver, Orville, to escort us to Scotchie’s, rumored to have the best jerk on the island. –Story by juniperdisco.com
First-Ever Nonstop Flights Planned Between Miami, British Virgin Islands: A long awaited air link could soon become a reality. And it could be a game-changer for British Virgin Islands tourism. The government of the British Virgin Islands has partnered with air carrier BVI Airways on what will be the first-ever direct, nonstop flights between Miami and the British Virgin Islands. –Story by Caribbean Journal
St. Barths West Indies Regatta 2015 – Reconnecting Caribbean Islands With Traditional Sail: Uniting the Caribbean island of St. Barths with the tradition of sailing, the West Indies Regatta represents the ultimate three days of fun on exotic beaches and turquoise-blue seas! Taking place from April 30 – May 3 (and coinciding in its first day with the St. Barths Film Festival 2015), this event is certain to be a main highlight of one of the best seasons here in the Caribbean. –Story by Caribbean Charter Flights
Top 100 Rums That Cost Less Than $100: The Houston Chronicle has issued its top 100 rums list that cost less than $100.00. I find the list very interesting, but I cant believe there are several rums like Ron Zacapa 23 Solera, Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, Havana Club Seven Year Old and a few others that were not included. –Story by Bahama Bob
