The Caribbean, located southeast of the Gulf of Mexico and the North American mainland, comprises of more than 700 islands, islets, reefs, and cays. The geography and climate varies greatly in the Caribbean based on the region. While some of the islands are relatively flat terrain or non-volcanic origin, others are rugged mountain-ranges towering over the islands. There is a tropical climate; however, rainfall varies with elevation, size, and water currents. Easterly trade winds are warm and moist blowing consistently and creating rainforest/semi desert divisions on the mountainous islands. There is year-round sunshine with the seasons being divided into six months of dry weather with the remaining six months wetter than the first. The great climate and beautiful seas make the Caribbean the perfect year round vacation spot to visit and relax.

Having a catamaran or motorboat on hand for a day or so would be spectacular in order to check out the marine life living in hidden coves and bays which are much harder to reach and explore by foot.
The Caribbean lifestyle is greatly influenced by its tropical setting.
Each island’s music, architecture, attitudes, and customs have all been shaped, not only by the physical landscape and climate, but the mixture of the African slaves’ heritage, European colonists, and the enduring legacies of the Indian tribes. This rich cultural identity is shared with the many visitors of the islands through dance performances, richly designed clothing, and delectable foods offered.
