Dare to do something different on your next vacation to the Caribbean

How sad and blue am I that we have reached the end of summer!  However, the great thing about the tropics is that you can enjoy the outdoors, sunshine and warmth year round.  If you are like myself and seek a great adventure, here are a few worth noting and trying on your next trip to the Caribbean!

Swim with pigs in the Bahamas 

The Caribbean is famous for its incredible sea life, boasting some of the world’s best dives, but an uninhabited island of the Exumas in the Bahamas offers you the chance to swim with a different kind of creature…pigs!

The brown and pink wild pigs live freely on the white sandy beach, which has been nicknamed by locals as “pig beach”.  It has become a popular tourist spot and many have enjoyed the experience of petting, feeding and taking selfies with them.  I dare you to take on this adventure!

Swim with stingrays in the Cayman Islands

Stingray City is a series of shallow sandbars found in the North Sound of Grand Cayman, which gives visitors the chance to swim and feed stingrays in crystal waters. The stingrays are used to being fed by the visiting tourists and as a result are very friendly.

Zip line in Labadee, Haiti  

Located in Labadee, Haiti is the Dragon’s Breath Flight Line.  It is the world’s longest over water zip line and can only be experienced if you cruise with Royal Caribbean to their private island in Labadee.  You will be transported in custom made vehicles to the take-off point 500 feet above the beaches of Labadee.  You will enjoy breathtaking views as you zip down a more than 2,600 feet long zip line, at speeds of 40-50mph.  It will land below at Dragon’s Breath Rock.  This is a perfect adventure for the ultimate thrillseeker!

Hike a tropical rainforest in Dominica

The beautiful tropical rainforests of Dominica are known for their hidden waterfalls and lakes.  If you love hiking and the peace and beauty of nature, this is a perfect adventure for you.  You will be exposed to numerous valleys, streams, rivers, gorges, bubbling mud baths and natural springs on this small Caribbean island, still left to be discovered by those who’ve never heard of this exotic little island.

Dive or snorkel in Grenada’s underwater sculpture park 

There are more than sixty-five sculptures sitting beneath the surface of Moliniere Bay in Grenada.  These captivating sculptures have been the attraction of divers and snorkelers for many years now.  Grenada welcomes you to see it’s unique beauty under the sea!
