Located south of Florida and north of South America, with Central America on its west and the Atlantic Ocean on its east, the Caribbean boasts the best balmy weather that is the closest to the continental United States. Even the cities contain glorious architecture and the towns in the region have been established long ago. The Caribbean waters are clear and the sun is hot; a Caribbean island vacation has something for everyone - whether you want to hike, swim, dive, snorkel or just play on the white sand beaches.

Take a tour of the rain forest in Puerto Rico or a tour the Arecibo Observatory, which is the worlds largest radar/radio telescope. A 20-acre radar dish sits in a large 565-foot deep sinkhole. The telescope can probe the ionosphere, examine planets and monitor natural radio emissions from distant galaxies, pulsars and quasars. Or learn how Bacardi Rum is distilled and bottled as you visit their building. Or to save big bucks and get back to nature, go camping on St. John, in the US Virgin Islands. The National Park has places to set up tents or if you don't want to rough it, they have shelters with two opposite ends screened in to allow the trade winds to keep you cool. The shelters also have platforms that keep you off the ground. With so many places to go and so many activities to do, picking the right place and things to do for your Caribbean vacations may seem overwhelming. That's why it's good to look before you leap.
