Caribbean Islands: Every island has its unique flavor, and hopefully, you'll get out and explore during your Caribbean vacation. Some islands have colonial towns (-- like Willemstad in Curacao, left, a World Heritage Site) or other sightseeing; some islands are known for beautiful tropical underseas. If you're staying in a resort, it's easy to arrange for tours, scuba, snorkeling trips, etc. On some islands, it's practical to rent a car and explore on your own.
Hurricane Season in the Caribbean: Hurricanes are a fact of life in the Caribbean, and even if you're far from its direct path, a hurricane still spreads bad weather around. Read about hurricane season and about strategies for protecting your Caribbean vacation if you choose to travel -- and take advantage of off-season bargains -- during affected months.
Vacation Home Rentals: Another way to have a Caribbean beach getaway is to rent a villa or condo, complete with kitchen, laundry, and other conveniences. Often, in the Caribbean, your rental will include maid services.
