If you're planning a holiday to the Caribbean, you should know a few things. First, prices fluctuate depending on the season, with high season typically lasting from December-April.
Second, some more secluded locations may have less cell phone service, so this may be something you want to inquire about.
Third, Caribbean destinations vary greatly from island to island, and even within the same island, so be sure to do some research or ask a Rental Escapes villa specialist about different destinations to find the one that is right for you.
It's easy to get a flight into the Caribbean, with Jamaica and Saint Martin being home to the most popular airports. From there, your concierge can assist with getting to your destination, whether that involves fairies, connecting flights, or just a simple airport transfer.
The Caribbean has a very sophisticated tourism infrastructure in place, so you should be able to get around relatively easily, including through private drivers, taxis, buses, and rental cars. You can also find domestic ferry routes between some islands if you want to explore. Again, speak to your concierge to arrange any sort of transportation.
This depends on what your goal is. If you want to go at a time when there will be lots of flights, tourists, and activities, you're better off visiting during the high season, which is late December to early April. However, prices will be better in the off-season (mid-April to mid-December), though we do suggest taking Hurricane season (mid-August to late-October) into account - even though your chances of running into a hurricane are still very low during this season (many Caribbean destinations are also off the hurricane belt, which further lowers your chance of being caught in a significant storm).
The Caribbean has more than enough activities to keep anyone busy, with some favorites being water sports (jet skiing, wakeboarding, kite surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking, and much more), as well as fishing, hiking, golfing, zip lining, snorkeling, and, of course, chilling out by the beach. And if you want to cut loose, there's usually a bustling nightlife scene in many Caribbean destinations as well.
Each island usually has its own specialty, from cracked conch in Turks & Caicos, fish & fungi in the British Virgin Islands, ackee and saltfish in Jamaica, and more. In general, though, you can expect tons of fresh seafood, French and West Indian cuisine, and well-crafted takes on Italian, Japanese, and American favorites.
During the high season, you can expect very little rain and comfortable, warm temperatures in the high 80s Fahrenheit (low 30s Celsius). During low season, the heat is more potent, as is the humidity, so expect the high 80s or low 90s (about 33°C), as well as a chance of showers in the afternoon.
When you book a Caribbean villa with Rental Escapes, you can rest assured that your holiday will be worry-free. Your concierge works with you up to and during your trip to make sure everything is perfectly suited to your tastes, and we have partners on the ground at all destinations who will help us coordinate your arrival and departure and provide you with plenty of help throughout your stay.
