Why go to the Caribbean?

The most drawing attraction of the Caribbean Islands is the sun, sea and sand. There are other great activities such as sailing, scuba diving, snorkeling, wind surfing and enjoying the cool ocean breezes.

There are a four common ways to visit the Caribbean Islands on vacation.

1. Choose a Caribbean Cruise Vacation Package that goes to islands you would like to visit. This has an advantage of being a prepackaged no muss no fuss vacation. The disadvantage is your time at the various locations is clearly defined with no flexibility.

2. Get one of the Cheap Caribbean Vacation Packages - This also has the advantage of being a prepackaged no muss no fuss vacation. The disadvantage is that you will be restricted in certain areas. For example, you may be at a resort that provides you all your activities and meals. For some this is great. Others may find it restricting.

3. Consider a 4 Day Caribbean Cruises if you have not cruised before, are limited on time or money, or a combination.

4. Create your own itinerary - You will have the most flexibility with your vacation. If you have an adventurous spirit this may be the way to go. It will usually take more time since you will do all the booking for the hotel (or beach house), the airline flights, determining your itinerary, choosing places to eat, site see and more.
