Helicopter to Montserrat

On my recent trip to the Caribbean I visited nine new countries and the highlight was undoubtably my helicopter trip to Montserrat. Montserrat is a British overseas territory located in the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean Sea. The former capital city of Plymouth was completely destroyed and two-thirds of the island’s population forced to flee […]

San Andrés Island, Colombia

San Andrés is the largest and principal island of the Colombian department of San Andrés y Providencia which consists of two island groups about 480 miles northwest of Colombia and 140 miles from the coast of Nicaragua. The archipelago has been claimed by Nicaragua, England and is now under the control of Colombia. San Andrés […]

The Resignation of Fidel Castro

I have been flooded with questions since yesterday’s announcement of Fidel Castro’s resignation after nearly 50 years of rule in Cuba. I am not surprised that he resigned as his health deterioration has been rumored for many years. I do not know how it will shake out with his brother Raul taking over and promising […]

Trinidad and Tobago

I found out Friday night at around 9:30pm that there was an air traffic controller strike set to begin at midnight last night, when my flight was scheduled for 4am. Needless to say, I was fairly nonplussed about the situation and had to scramble to check out of my hotel and get to the airport […]

Margarita Island, Venezuela

Bonbini! Aruba

Aruba is one of those places that people marvel about. It is a beautiful island that is everything an island is supposed to be. It has something for everyone to do and some of the best beaches you can imagine. I have been there twice and both times left wanting more. Palm Beach is the […]

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Punta Cana is the jewel in the crown of the Dominican Republic. The beaches are spectacular and the seafood is great. The resorts are top notch with idyllic pools and palm lined properties. Relaxation is the theme in the DR and If you dare escape the allure of the all inclusive resorts then you can […]

The Bay Islands

Ever hear of a place called Roatan? Of course not, who has? What country is that in? The answer is…it’s a small island in the western Caribbean belonging to Honduras. The island of Roatan is home to some of the best diving and snorkeling in the entire world. It is contained in the second largest […]


Bermuda is often forgotten about by most people I know because it’s so close to New York. It’s only a 2 hour flight but it doesn’t often come up as a place to shoot off to for a getaway. The more mainstream Caribbean places generally come up more often. However, Bermuda is awesome. The restaurants […]
