Caribbean/West Indies - Recommendations & Raves
I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move.

These are some of my best islands but still don't forget Barbados, Puerto Rico,St. Martin. and this is only the beginning. I live in St. Thomas and I just love exploring the Caribbean
Boxing Day and New Year's Day there is a parade of these costumes, all made from "junk" - i.e. paper, cardboard, plastic bags, no fabric or permanent structure. The parades are incredible with color and it is such a great time
I heard from a friend that Rick's was trashed by a storm in 2003 and they rebuilt it? It would be cool to go back for sure.
Tobago is much more typical Carribean - tourism is the main business, lots of soft and sandy beaches with pretty people on them, etc. From what I hear, great scuba diving and bird watching. I didn't do any of these though - I just hung out and took it easy as a giant wave kinda kicked my butt while I was on Trinidad. Stayed at Footprints Eco Resort on Tobago - a bit of a splurge but a great place to recoup. Very cool place, and great to unwind there. Looks like the prices went up a bit since I was there...
All in all, had a great time on the islands and now I know how to make a mean rum-punch!
