A Caribbean honeymoon is your typical summery, beachy, sunshine-washed vacation ... on steroids. Exactly what that looks like depends on the island you choose. Popular Jamaica, for example, is the birthplace of reggae, as well as the Rastafarian culture and a homegrown food scene that includes spicy jerk chicken and rich beef patties covered in pastry and served with coconut bread and habanero sauce. St. Lucia, on the other hand, is the home of the conical green Grand Teton Mountains, a volcano, black-sand beaches, and savory local delicacies like banana and saltfish, plantains, and breadfruit and saltfish. Each island is unique: Their personalities are as distinct as their landscapes, cuisine, and music.
No matter which island you choose, though, you'll be treated to a honeymoon rainbow found only in nature: green palm trees, blue water and skies, white clouds, golden sand, red flowers, and black birds. All of the Caribbean isles offer a brightly colorful kaleidoscope that belies the subtly quiet tranquility. Here, you can stretch out on the beach or by the pool, budging only to take a cooling dip in the pool, sip a cocktail, or turn over to spread more sunscreen on your gently toasting skin. Of course, you can also hit the spa, swim, snorkel, and try your hand at other sports, both on land and in the water. But we suggest taking some time to rest and just enjoy the company on this most deserved vacation for two.
