Whether you want to go scuba diving and snorkeling or deep sea fishing and bungee jumping, the Caribbean has it all. Climb waterfalls in Jamaica, aerial trek zip line in exotic Barbados, visit ancient ruins on the island of Nevis or snorkel through schools of colourful fish in St. Maarten. The opportunities for fun in the sun, sand and surf are endless and almost every 4 or 5 star all inclusive hotel has a wide range of activities to offer their guests as well.

#3: Nothing Say's "I Beat The Winter Blues" Like Attending Carnival!

Beginning in February and thorughout the year, the Caribbean launches its annual 'Carnival' which are events full of parades, colourful costumes, wild beach parties, unlimited local food and snacks, non-stop activities and more! If you want to get away from routine days and dark, cold weather, then book a trip to the Caribbean and head to one of the carnivals! There is no point in wasting time sitting around and being a couch potato when you could be sampling exotic Caribbean street snacks, dancing to the beat of an island and meeting new friends. Be prepared this time around and plan to escape the 'blah' days of winter this year.

#4: Accessible From All Ends Of The Earth

The Caribbean is easy accessible from every part of the world so forget thinking you will lose out if you live in the UK, Spain or Australia. There are flights from every part of the world, and even if you have to take a connecting flight, it will be worth it. You will also find major cruise lines offering packages that feature Caribbean port stops. Don't allow your location to deter you from seeing all the beauty and natural charm that the Caribbean has to offer.

#5: Who Can Say No To 365 Days Of Sun?

While you may experience a thunderstorm or rain showers here and there, it never stays around for long. The Caribbean offers some of the best sunny weather in the world and you always have a chance of experiencing multiple days of sun while on vacation there. (Just be cautious around hurricane season) If you love to sun bathe or if you just have a special attachment to tropical weather and temperatures, make sure you spend some time in the Caribbean this upcoming winter.

#6: Friendly Locals and Happy People

Maybe it's the warm weather and non-stop sunny days, or perhaps it is just how the island spirit is experienced when living there. When you visit any island in the Caribbean you will always be greeted with warmth and kindness. The Caribbean people are warm and friendly and you will always feel welcome in some way or another.
