Life in the Caribbean
For most people, the Caribbean is home to adventure, pirates, rum, cigars, passionate dancing and a measured life. All this attracts travelers from all over the world, and someone, having been there, decides to connect their lives with this paradise. In a programme “Life in the Caribbean” on the Fine Living TV channel, it is about such people that they are ready to radically change their lives for the sake of a dream. With the first step - the search for the perfect home - our brave heroes will be helped by experienced realtors who are able to guess the wishes of even the most demanding client..
And for those who have not yet been to the Caribbean, but really want to visit there, the Fine Living TV channel has compiled a selection of some of the most picturesque islands, where you should definitely go..
Roatan Island, Honduras
Roatan Island is the administrative center of the Islas de la Bahia department, as well as one of the most convenient settlements for travelers in Honduras - thanks to the developed infrastructure, everyone can find a good hotel, restaurant, cafe and bar there. However, do not be afraid to see another ennobled resort, no different from the same “cleaned” for tourist places. The pristine nature and Caribbean flavor are felt there literally in everything, and the proximity of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, the second largest in the world (surpassed only by the Great Barrier Reef in Australia), made Roatan an ideal place for diving and spearfishing..
Turks and Caicos
Despite the fact that the Turks and Caicos are an extension of the Bahamas, it is an independent state that is included in the list “British Overseas Territories”, under British sovereignty, but not part of it. The main tourist center of Turks and Caicos is considered to be the island of Providenciales with its excellent hotels and developed infrastructure..
Due to the fact that there are no large settlements on the island, everyone can feel like Robinson Crusoe for a while. And beaches of white sand, the purest azure sea and an abundance of plants and animals, including even humpback whales, are just a few of what you have to enjoy in Turks and Caicos..
Saint Martin and Sint Maarten
The island of Saint Martin is perhaps one of the most unusual islands not only in the Caribbean, but in the whole world. Being the smallest inhabited island in the world, it belongs to two states at once: the sulfur part - France, where the island is called Saint-Martin, the southern part - to the Netherlands, which calls it Sint-Martin. And if in French territory the official currency is the euro, then in the possessions of the Netherlands in circulation there are still guilders, which were canceled in the Netherlands itself back in 2002. The most unusual airport is also located here: its runway starts from the beach, and planes land right over the heads of the tourists. In general, despite the non-standard nature of this island, Saint-Martin offers travelers quite “usual” recreation kit: crystal clear sea, sandy beaches, unity with nature and the opportunity to do water sports.
Vieques, Puerto Rico
Vieques is often called “Green island”. It really deserves this title, as almost 70% of its territory is a nature reserve, making it the largest protected area in the Caribbean. Due to its status, the island has been preserved in almost its original form, with a huge number of exotic plants, fish and wild animals - even horses there enjoy freedom and graze on their own. Another advantage of Vieques is its perfectly clean wild beaches. And after dark, head to the Mosquito Channel, where the water shimmers with blue-green reflections. Do not be alarmed - this is the work of one of the phytoplankton species that phosphoresces, defending against potential predators..
