From tropical rainforests found in Dominica to swaying street music in Puerto Rico, these islands are filled with mystery and interests that quench nature lovers’ thirst. Here’s what you should do on your vacation to the Caribbean:

1.   Visit Mosquito Bay

Mosquito Bay is our earth’s brightest bioluminescent cove on Vieques island in Puerto Rico. During the nighttime, the bay develops into a dazzling bioluminescent. It’s because of the dinoflagellates organisms present in the water that turn it into blue lights. Go when there’s no moon in the night sky. The bioluminescence is more visible then.

2.   Old Havana

Old Havana is a historic neighborhood created by the Spanish in 1519. It was labeled a UNESCO World Heritage site because of its architectural gems and forts. Explore the Spanish fortresses and charming plazas of Art Nouveau Cuban Baroque. Don’t forget to experience stunning Cuban music.

3.   Stingray City

In the North Sound area of Grand Cayman, Stingray City has beautiful sandy shorelines, crystal-like waters, and hospitable residents. Stingray City is one of the tourists’ must-visit attractions.

The city is full of blue and green clear waters and coral reefs, looking mind-blowing with gigantic southern Atlantic stingrays. These stingrays are super friendly. So, you don’t need to fear them.

Also, you can only reach this city by boat. So, book a glass-bottom boat tour to reach this beauty. Don’t forget your snorkeling session. Petting a stingray and feeding it in their home is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Don’t miss out on it!

4.   Playing Online Poker

This 28,000 acres of lush green heaven is a tropical rainforest established in 1903. It’s even listed in the US’s National Park System. When you get tired of exploring the bustling cities of the Caribbean, make sure you find your haven in this exotic rainforest.

The forest is full of majestic waterfalls and trails. You can hike while witnessing the ethereal beauty the rainforest is native to. Hike up to El Toro peak. It’s more than 3500 feet above sea level and is the highest peak of El Yunque National Forest. But don’t forget to pack your water bottles, as the hike there is just as challenging as fun.

6.   Exploring the Pig Beach

8.   Time for Maho Beach

Located on Saint Martin’s Dutch side, Maho Beach is popular for its unparalleled view of low-flying planes. A trip to St. Martin is like that of Europe. You can travel from the Dutch to the French side within a few minutes.

But visiting Maho Beach is the main priority, as it’s free to visit. Don’t take this beach as a place to relax. People typically visit this place to watch the overhead planes soaring in the air. So, enjoy the never-experienced Maho Beach now.
