Caribbean Islands with a European Vibe

Caribbean Islands with a European Vibe | Caribbean Castaway-RumShopRyan | Scoop.it

At these tropical destinations, the best of the West Indies and Europe come together

 

Poking around a seaside village in Provence, loitering in a creperie with the Mediterranean stretching away just outside the window, browsing boutiques filled with small things that are useless—but beautiful—to be brought home.

 

There are places in the Caribbean that evoke that same languorous vibe and have the charm and the spirit of Europe. While you won’t mistake Martinique for the Cote d’Azur or Santo Domingo for Seville, they do offer experiences—food, atmosphere and accent—that satisfy in ways a trip to the Continent never could. Plus, the beaches are a whole lot better.

Sugar Beach, St. Lucia – Welcome to Fantasy Island! | Caribbean Castaway-RumShopRyan | Scoop.it
OK, so we all remember or have at least heard of Fantasy Island, with Tattoo yelling, “De plane! De plane!” and Mr. Roarke, toasting his new guests with a, “Welcome to Fantasy Island.”  Well they may not have had us arrive by plane, but Sugar Beach Resort in St. Lucia is not far off.

Rugged, Unpretentious and Real...This is Union Island! | Caribbean Castaway-RumShopRyan | Scoop.it
“You know when you arrive somewhere and you get the feeling that it’s a place you’d like to stay awhile? For us, that was Union. This island wasn’t being “put-on” for tourists. It was rugged, unpretentious, real and had a very Caribbean vibe to it.

Today's boat drink recipe was created by Castaway mixologist Jeremy McDaniel, and its been titled the Jamaican Redhead. It's called the Jamaican Redhead because the drink is blue. No...obviously the drink is red, the color coming from a refreshing watermelon purée.

Saba: Your Unspoiled Caribbean Paradise | Caribbean Castaway-RumShopRyan | Scoop.it

This Dutch Caribbean island is off the beaten track, and distinctly different from the typical beach-lined landscapes of the region. The first view from land or sea shows a massive vertical green mountain rising 3,000 feet above sea level with a halo of misty white clouds.

The Caribbean’s Hottest Destination

The Caribbean’s Hottest Destination | Caribbean Castaway-RumShopRyan | Scoop.it

Above: Wotten Waven, Dominica (All photos by CJ)

WOTTEN WAVEN — It’s hot here. 

 

Yes, it’s the Caribbean. And yes, the sun is heavy.

But there’s another source of heat; something beneath my shoes.

 

You can see it in the copper-orange pools of boiling water; in the fumes that rise to the clouds. It’s a pulse, under the surface, but sometimes it escapes.

10 REASONS TO CHOOSE A CREWED CHARTER YACHT INSTEAD OF A CRUISE SHIP | iyachtclub - iYachtClub

10 REASONS TO CHOOSE A CREWED CHARTER YACHT INSTEAD OF A CRUISE SHIP | iyachtclub - iYachtClub | Caribbean Castaway-RumShopRyan | Scoop.it
Don't take a big, crowed cruise ship for your next Caribbean vacation. Choose a crewed charter yacht and sailing vacation instead.
RumShopRyan-Caribbean Travel's insight:

Cruising has its place, but in my opinion it's not a true Caribbean experience. You need to go slow and soak in an experience, not be hustled from port to port as fast as possible. 


Chartering a crewed sailing vessels like our friends One Love is a great way to really experience a destination.
