From breathtaking beaches and waters to friendly locals and old-world charm
Breathtaking natural beauty combined with old-world charm defines the magical allure of the Eastern Caribbean. With a distinctive fusion of European, African and Latin American influences, this region boasts quaint towns alive with diverse cultures amongst a breathtaking backdrop of swaying palm trees, velveteen sands and turquoise waters accented with rainbow fish. The locals are friendly, the duty-free shops bustling and the cultures fascinating. Soak up the sun, adopt its laid-back island mindset and explore coral reefs teeming with marine life on an Eastern Caribbean cruise vacation, roundtrip from Ft. Lauderdale for a quick weekend getaway, one week, or even longer!
This Caribbean region boasts a richly diverse heritage with British colonial roots in Antigua, Grand Turk's Bermudan influences, and of course, the rich Dutch and French cultures of extraordinary St. Maarten.
The natural beauty of the Eastern Caribbean is sure to delight, from St. Lucia's twin volcanic peaks, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to the Antiguan and Puerto Rican rainforests, Grand Turk’s renowned coral reefs and more.
The Caribbean is a shopper's paradise. Head to St. Maarten's Front Street, Grenada's St. George Harbor or the Venezuelan village of Tacuantar for local crafts. For fine leather, cameras, jewelry and art, the U.S. Virgin Island's Charlotte Amalie and San Juan's Condado and Isla Verde are your best bets.
