Chill out with some rum punch after an adventure-filled day in the Eastern Caribbean.
Leave your troubles behind and get on island time with a journey to the Eastern Caribbean. Hike through dense jungle and pass by thunderous waterfalls in Puerto Rico's El Yunque National Forest, or take on the longest zip-line in the world over water in Labadee, Haiti. Dive into the crystal-clear waters of St. Maarten and go for a snorkel or swim with dolphins at Blue Lagoon Island in the Bahamas. With your Eastern Caribbean cruise, grab your eye patch and set sail on a schooner to Buck Island before dropping anchor at Turtle Bay, where you can learn about the pirate history of St. Thomas.
Whether your idea of adventure is historical or adrenaline-pumping, the Eastern Caribbean has something that will light up your senses during your vacation. Explore the colonial past of the region's vibrant cities, or take a trek through dense rainforests full of singing tree frogs and exotic parrots.
Explore the area in style. Hop on the St. Kitts Scenic Railway and be transported back in time as you visit the old sugar plantation. Wander down the cobblestone streets of San Juan and admire the colonial houses of the old town. Or visit Blackbeard's Castle in St. Thomas and learn all about the pirates who once came there.
The Eastern Caribbean is home to some of the best zip-lining courses in the world, and adrenaline lovers will have more than one chance to soar through the sky.

Window-shop for traditional Taino arts and crafts like straw hats in Nassau, Bahamas. Visit the Caribbean to peruse upscale fashions at the Port Zante Mall in St. Kitts.
Kick back, relax and listen to the calming sounds of the ocean while the soothing tones of the steel drum fill the air. Sip on a Bahama-mama or mojito as your toes glide through the white sand of picture-perfect spots like Junkanoo Beach in the Bahamas or Condado Beach in San Juan.
Imagine yourself laying on a white sand beach, the waves of the crystal-clear Caribbean Sea crashing around you. Soar over jungle canopies or horseback riding through the rain forest. Or flex your sense of wonder and immerse yourself in the culture of some of the oldest cities in the region.
Cruises to the Caribbean are perfect for a quick weekend getaway. Soak up the sun for a few days and use the time to relax and recharge. Head to Nassau, Bahamas, to explore 18th-century Fort Fincastle and wade into the turquoise waters with a mojito in hand at Paradise Island.
The Eastern Caribbean lets you pair the opportunity to jump into adventure head-first with relaxing afternoons when you can tune out the world and relax on the white sand beaches. Adrenaline junkies can hike volcanoes in St. Kitts, dive coral reefs in the Bahamas, horseback ride through the jungle in Puerto Rico, or catch some rays in Labadee before shopping till you drop in St. Thomas.
