  3. Flamingos, Lighthouses, and…Salt - Inagua Islands, The Bahamas

    With 140 different species of exotic birds, including over 80,000 flamingos, Inagua is a birdwatcher’s dream. The mangroves are also a natural habitat for nesting hawkbill and green sea turtles.

  6. Jamaica’s Hidden Retreat - Port Antonio, Jamaica

    Once a beach escape for celebrities in the 1940s, this quiet town is tucked well away from Jamaica’s more touristy areas.

Trek to the stunning Reach Waterfall and famed Blue Lagoon or take a bamboo raft to the aptly named Monkey Island.
