The Caribbean doesn't do drab. It's a riot of natural and man-made colour across 7,000 islands. Starkest aquamarine with white foam froth, velvet-green sumptuousness of hinterland forests; flashes of gold in trinkets and talismans and the bullion of banks. There are at least 12 types of mango grown here and your hunt for the perfect beach won't take long.

World famous for a reason
Cuba is the largest Caribbean island and Havana delights with faded architecture, kicking nightlife and the ever-photogenic classic cars. There are hundreds of dive spots in Cuba and its unspoilt coral and excellent underwater visibility draw visitors from across the globe. Diving with stingrays is a highlight in the Cayman Islands and Barbados is still the isle of rum. The Bahamas paint the natural appeal of the Caribbean in (not so small) miniature. No one chills out quite like a Jamaican.
