Tropical islands, rainforests, beautiful beaches and hash dealers are what I think of when I think about the Caribbean. Maybe the last bit is unfair but its been my experience and after all, like it says at the top, view the world through my eyes.
It could be tempting to say that all these places are the same and that may will be true if all you ever do is stay in your 4/5 star all inclusive hotel with a private beach that banishes the locals.
If your only trip is on the travel company’s bus from the airport to your hotel then there really is no point travelling so far to be here. Actually, this description applies equally to many hotels around the world. The more money you have, the more you can be removed from what is really is happening. Is this what travel is about?
