Spend the best days of your life here with Dook’s Caribbean Travel Packages
Located to the southeast of North America and the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean region is adorned with more than 7,000 islands, islets, coral reefs and cays that are covered across an area of approx 2,754,000 sq km. It is a region generously blessed with warm, tropical climate stunning natural scenery and vibrant cultures and that’s the key reason why it is most commonly known as a biodiversity hotspot. There are in total 13 independent countries in the region including Antigua and Barbuda, The Bahamas, Barbados, Cuba, Dominica, Grenada, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Trinidad and Tobago. And the fact that makes exploration interesting in all these is that the Caribbean countries are all islands, all of them sitting close to each other, along the Caribbean Sea! So appealing, isn’t it?
It is not just this insanely large variety of the islands that has made the Caribbean stand out in the crowd; the culture and history have played a major role too. Here, different people, including indigenous groups that still existed since the colonization times, Europeans and Africans have helped shape the cultural mosaic of the region. So when you are daydreaming of an island getaway amidst the interesting cultural spots to explore, the Caribbean will always be on the top of your mind. With countless sun-kissed beaches, volcanic islands, rich flora and fauna and almost 9 % of the world’s coral reefs to its credit, how can the Caribbean not be everyone's favourite vacation spot!

Jamaica ranks number three in terms of the largest countries in the Caribbean, based solely on the size of the area. The country is heavily composed of mountains and the reason why you’ll see a magnificent palette of outdoor experiences and engaging activities here. It is one of the offbeat countries of the Caribbean that offers a pleasant mix of culture and nature. While on one hand you’ll be dancing to the beats of live reggae or capturing the Jamaican favourite-jerk cuisine, on the other, you’ll love spending your time hiking across the half-exotic jungles filled with endless sunshine or lounging on the tropically blessed beaches. Don’t forget to visit Montego Bay city, St. James Parish and try some Jamaican rum. If you are looking for a place to reset, relax and recharge, Jamaica it is!
2. The Bahamas:
Situated very near to the coastline of Jamaica and to the north of the Greater Antilles, The Bahamas is a stunning archipelago with 51 per cent of forested land and more than 700 tropical islands. A significant percentage of these islands are officially cays, or coral reef islands and most are uninhabited which makes the place a top bucket list destination for beach bums. Tourism, in particular, is the key thing driving the economy here, so the locals you will come across will warmly cater to visitors. So if you are looking for a break from the fast-paced daily life, secluded retreats on pink-sand beaches surrounded by irresistibly blue waters, the Bahamas is a sure-shot go-to holiday destination!
The largest country in the region, Cuba is in the north of the Caribbean with a land area encompassing 106,440 sq. km. It is one of the island nations of the Greater Antilles, popular for its chic capital Havana. Here, you will find opportunities to explore the abundance of museums, art galleries and the oh-so-gorgeous jazz clubs that are too good to miss. While you can easily spend your days here dancing in the salsa clubs or exploring the booming art scene of the city, you must not miss a tour to the nearby UNESCO World Heritage Site of Trinidad, whose buildings look back into the time of the 17th century.
4. Trinidad and Tobago:
Even though Trinidad and Tobago are two separate islands, they are a single country combined under one name and sold under two-in-one packages. These two wonderful Caribbean islands are off the coast of the South American country of Venezuela and their surrounding waters include the Gulf de Pana, the Atlantic Ocean and, of course, the Caribbean Sea. They are highly unexplored and therefore, you will see the huge untouched expanses of wilderness that adorn the islands like jewels. While here, you can opt to hike or bike across the mountains, climb the forts, dive inside the magnificent coral reefs, see the goat racing, lounge on the beaches or enjoy the local flatbreads with a glass of locally produced rum.
This island country in the eastern part of the Caribbean is the most densely populated and offers delightful bits of everything. Considering tourism is the main economic activity in Barbados, this portion of the Caribbean is full of beaches, history and culture and a lot of rum. Yes, you heard it right! Being the birthplace of rum, it is surprising to note that there are more than 15,000 rum shops for you to do bulk rum shopping and the oldest rum distillery in the world. You can also learn about the island’s history in Bridgetown, snorkel with sea turtles, soak in the vibes at Treasure Beach or Dover, try hands-on surfing at Bathsheba Beach and more.
