The Southern Caribbean caters for a range of diverse interests both above and below the water.
Bonaire and Curacao lie just north of Venezuela and form part of the Dutch Antilles. There is little rainfall and diving conditions are excellent year round. Diving Freedom, pioneered in Bonaire, allows divers to enjoy 24-hour access to stress free diving. Beautiful corals and marine life combined with excellent visibility make both Bonaire and Curacao a mecca for photographers. Above water both islands offer a complete range of activities. With daily flights between the two islands a 2 centre holiday is an excellent option.
Lying in the path of the Guyana current, Grenada and Carriacou are mountainous islands of volcanic origin. Their dramatic interiors are defined by cascading waterfalls, mountain lakes and tropical rainforest. Underwater, the marine life is prolific and compliments the wrecks that distinguish Grenada as a world class dive destination.
The Northeastern Caribbean is an intriguing area offering a blend of Dutch, British, French and native cultures on some of the most scenic islands of the Caribbean. Sitting north-east of Monserrat, Guadeloupe and Dominica, these colourful and multi-cultural islands offer a lovely mix of above and below water beauty. The diving is diverse, with a wealth of coral colours on shallow pinnacles, walls, sandy gullies and deeper marine sea mounts. On land, picturesque coves with brightly coloured fishing boats, laid back villages and lush rainforests offer the chance to experience a little Caribbean life.
Tobago lies a short distance from Grenada and justifies its position as one of the Caribbean's finest dive destinations with a combination of fine coral reefs and a wonderful variety of species which includes a variety of sharks and rays. Pristine and laid back Tobago is a great place to unwind. The island retains much of its uncomplicated charm and the local costs make it more affordable than many Caribbean islands. Tobago has something to appeal to everyone, from the excellent diving opportunities to beautiful beaches and indigenous tropical forests.
Cuba has a vast and beautiful coastline, with an extensive range of dive sites, as well as a rich cultural heritage. Cuba's south coast is characterised by dramatic underwater walls that drop vertically from the surface down in to the blue. Spectacular sponges add colour to the reef, which is alive with an excellent range of exotic Caribbean species and colourful corals. On land centuries as a Spanish colony have left their mark on Cuba. The country is an exotic blend of elegant Spanish buildings and vibrant Latin culture. Havana, the capital, is a listed world heritage site and is renowned for its bars, restaurants and live music.
