Planning a Caribbean holiday
When Planning a Caribbean holiday what do you need to consider when choosing which island will be best for you? There are several factors to look in to when you start planning a Caribbean Holiday. We can help you with the whole process. Think about the questions below.
What time of year do you want to travel? The Caribbean does have a hurricane season, which means although there will be rain, you can get some great prices. Remember just because it’s hurricane season, it doesn’t mean there will be a hurricane and some islands are outside the hurricane belt.
Do you want a small quiet island or somewhere more lively?
Do you want more activity, with a lots of water-sports available?
Do you want to go diving or to learn to dive? How close are the dive sites to the island?
Do you want to be All Inclusive, or do you want to explore and dine around the Islands?
Not all of the islands have direct flights, are you happy to take 2 flights?
Do you wanting to stay on the beach or just near the beach?
What board do you want, All Inclusive, Full Board, Half Board, Bed & Breakfast? (Not all islands offer All Inclusive)?
How important is luxury to you?
The above 3 are the main considerations to take in to account when planning a Caribbean holiday as they affect the price the most. The higher the star rating, the more then hotel will offer as standard, and so the higher the cost. Seaview rooms are more than inland or mountain view rooms. If this is a one off holiday of a lifetime, where luxury is all important, find a wonderful 5* resort by taking into account all of the questions above. If you are planning on spending the vast majority of your time exploring the island or diving in the Caribbean Sea and high end luxury and choice of restaurants isn’t so important, you can find some lovely 3* resorts.
Once you have taken the above factors in to consideration you can then narrow down which islands would suit you best and from there which resort will be perfect for you. See Choosing a Caribbean Island.
