DID YOU KNOW? Caribbean Travel Fun Facts

• Only two percent of the Caribbean is inhabited by humans! So it's the perfect place to get away from it all.

• There is sun, sea, and sand - with plenty of room to roam in the company of shy iguanas, or to watch dolphin playfully swim offshore.

Sun, sand, sea ... and romance.

• The Caribbean remains the world's top location for honeymoon destinations. So without further ado here is our survey of the Top Ten Romantic Spots in the Caribbean.

• Ecotourism is another growing industry within the Caribbean travel circuit. For example, ecotourism in Puerto Rico has exploded in recent years as travelers discover that those "all inclusive" resorts often shield them from the island's mind-blowing natural beauty.

• Sit back and enjoy fresh mangoes, oranges, watermelon, and bananas which are in abundance on many Caribbean islands. Don't go without also trying more exotic local fruits such as guava, tamarind, and papaya.

• Carnival is celebrated on almost every Caribbean island just before the Lenten season. But the partying never really ends. Other street spectacles like Junkanoo in the Bahamas are also celebrated throughout the year.

Have fun!
