5 Essential Places to Visit in Cuba

Ever since December when there were public comments by the government about potentially lifting the 50-year embargo on Cuba, people have been asking me non-stop about Cuba. Is it safe to go to Cuba? What’s it like in Cuba? Is everything going to change once Americans are allowed to go to Cuba? How can you […]

Americans Should Manage Expectations on Havana

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past month or so, you’ve no doubt heard that the US is and will be curbing travel restrictions to Cuba and may soon end the trade embargo that has existed for 50+ years. I get asked constantly about Havana and Cuba in general. Everyone is so […]

A Culinary Tour of Grand Bahama Island

I was invited to do a culinary tour of Grand Bahama Island and I couldn’t pass up the chance to see the best of what the island had to offer. I had never been to Grand Bahama so I was also interested in seeing how it measured up to other Bahamian islands I’ve visited like […]

Aruba 10 Years Later

I was really excited to get back to Aruba for my third trip to the Dutch island. Aruba was actually the first Caribbean island that I visited back in 1999 with a group of 15 friends when we chartered a plane from nearby Margarita Island, Venezuela. That trip was so much fun and was matched […]

Guantanamo Bay, Cuba: What It’s Really Like

I went to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba (GTMO) with no expectations, no preconceived notions and an open mind. Of course, I had heard all the criticisms, opinions, and negative media coverage but as always, I wanted to see it for myself and form my own opinion. So after five days on the Guantanamo Bay Naval Station, […]

The Best of Bermuda

Bermuda is simply put, one of the best islands in the world. That said, the best of Bermuda is obviously something that is different for each person as every person has a different experience. However, after two great visits to Bermuda I believe I have a pretty good feel for the best of Bermuda…or at […]

I Want to Visit Barbados Again

This is a sponsored post I have wanted to visit Barbados again for a while. I was there back in 2008 for just a day on the only cruise I’ve ever taken and I know there is so much more to see. World-class beaches, hotels, rum distilleries, cricket and botanical gardens-Barbados offers a lot to […]

Eleuthera Island, Bahamas

Eleuthera is a tough word to spell and almost as tough to pronounce but don’t hold the tongue twisting against it! Eleuthera is an island of the Bahamas about 50 miles east of Nassau, the capital. It is a pretty long and thin island; about 110 miles long by only a mile wide. Three airports […]

A Day on Harbour Island

Ahhhh the Bahamas. I love the name Bahamas, it just sounds like it should be in the Caribbean. It just sounds colorful, tropical, and full of life with amazing beaches. That’s pretty much accurate too! The Bahamas are made up of hundreds of islands spread out over a pretty vast area not too far off […]

San Juan Sizzles

San Juan doesn’t get the respect it deserves. Most people use it as a transit stop coming or going from a cruise or a flight. The city itself is hardly given a look aside from the compulsory Old San Juan meandering from the nearby cruise ship dock. The most cosmopolitan city in the Caribbean is […]
