If you’re not out for beach bumming, then you should try touring in Cuba’s capital, Havana. Havana is a vibrant city that has lots to offer especially for fans of architecture. There are pastel-colored buildings, centuries-old plazas, and a stream of vintage cars just driving around the streets. Truly, Havana is an eye-candy in every direction!
Make your vacation one of the most memorable and engage with the locals. Eat their distinct and sumptuous cuisines, get your feet wet at the El Malecon, and cap off the day by dancing with the crowds.
Martinique is best for people who just can’t get enough of the great outdoors! Whether it’s hiking, rappelling, or canyoning you want, Martinique is a place that can give you all that! There are also fine-sanded beaches perfect for relaxation after the tiring adventures.
While Martinique has loads to offer, it’s also one of the more expensive places you can visit in the Caribbean. Aside from high prices especially during winter, Martinique’s currency is euro, being an overseas region of France. But then again, their fine dining experience and luxury resorts will make it worth your money.

Curacao is considered one of the best-kept secret of the Caribbean. With 35 picture-perfect beaches, diverse heritage and culture, and majestic European architecture, there’s something in the Curacao for every type of explorer! It’s capital, Willemstad is even a UNESCO World Heritage site and is among the top 5 cities in the Caribbean as voted on by Conde Naste Traveler readers in 2013.
While a vacation in the Curacao can be expensive, there are ways to save money on your trip. Taking the bus, or as they call ‘convoys’ is the most affordable way to get around. Going there on during offseason, which happens to be during summer, can get you up to 50% savings on hotels and flights. Also, opting to hold a barbecue on the beach can not only save you some cash, it can also be fun too!
