WHY WE RECOMMEND Caribbean CRUISES
Arguably one of the world’s most popular and iconic cruise destinations, the Caribbean is a holidaymaker’s paradise. This famous archipelago is made up of a number of secluded and picturesque tropical islands, each with its own beautiful and scenic landscape alongside a laid-back local culture, all complemented by a wonderfully warm climate.
The Caribbean’s many idyllic island destinations boast plenty of pristine golden sandy beaches, crystal clear ocean waters and friendly locals, so visitors will always feel welcome wherever in the region they travel. However, the islands are not limited to their natural beauty, as much of the Caribbean also has a rich local culture and an illustrious history, often on display in the form of landmarks and fascinating museums as well as charming dining venues and bustling marketplaces.

In Brazil, there are giant stretches of unexplored rainforest, islands with pristine beaches and endless rivers. The small city of Cabo Frio feels like it’s just been discovered. The principle beach is Praia do Forte, or Fort Beach, which sprawls wide and unbroken for more than four miles. On the left side you will find the São Mateus fort, which is a protected site by the National Historic Heritage Institute. This is also the perfect place to snap a photo of the stunning view of the coast. If you enjoy shelling, visit Concha Beach, which gets its name from the treasures you’ll find in the sand. And if you prefer an active beach day, head to the white sand dunes of Dunas Beach, perfect for surfing, kite surfing and sailing.

French Guiana is best known for the infamous penal colony to which convicts and undesirables were deported from France. For a long time the small archipelago was known by the name of “Devil’s Island.” The notorious convict settlements were built in 1852. Today, discover a lush, green landscape, where tropical foliage has grown over the old prison buildings and softened their aspect from forbidding to quaint. The most famous prisoners were Alfred Dreyfus, the French Army officer falsely convicted of treason, and Henri Charrière, who was immortalized in the movie “Papillon” for supposedly being the only convict to escape from “the Green Hell.” Please be advised that due to the under-developed nature of this destination, organized tours are not available.
