Swimming with dolphins is no longer fashionable — swimming and a photo session with pigs happily living on the “Pig island” is in trend. By the way, how many friends do you have on Instagram? These little animals have more than 300 thousand subscribers. Those interested in the history of the appearance of pigs on the island, local guides tell that pirates for food brought their distant descendants to the island (but where are these pirates now?).

On the tropical island of Curacao, which was born after a volcanic eruption, there is a “little Amsterdam” — the capital Willemstad.

Bermuda is synonymous with beach holidays, but if you look deeper, the islands will reveal to you the main of their secrets. This is exactly what happened a century ago, when two local boys, looking for a football ball, discovered the first cave. For the transparency of the waters of its underground lake, the cave was named Crystal, and the neighboring cave — Fantasy. Now about 150 caves have been explored in Bermuda, but the first two remain the main ones.

Saint Lucia Bungee Ride

Saint Lucia is the greenest Caribbean island, and the summits of the volcanoes Petit Piton and Gros Piton make its silhouette unforgettable. You can get a bird’s eye view of the island and fly at high speeds over densely populated exotic jungle animals using a zip-line or bungee. You can continue your acquaintance with the jungle and watch birds at the Capella Marigot Bay Resort&Marina hotel, located on the most beautiful beach of the Caribbean islands.

Dominican Republic: Ride the Natural Waterslide

The Dominicans believe that nature created the best water park in the world, and ride right on the waterfalls of the Damajagua River. The river flows down the hill, forming 27 waterfalls along the way, which you will overcome with the help of a guide. The places around are almost wild, so not only an adrenaline rush but also beautiful photos are guaranteed to every traveler.

Picturesque beaches, tropical forests, lost bays, gentle sandy beaches – all this attracts travelers from different parts of the world.
