Julie Epstein: This year, many Americans will follow the siren song of the Caribbean to escape to the dreary cold winter weather. To help you plan here are our picks for this winter's top Caribbean vacation spots.
The Twin Island of St. Kitts and Nevis fulfills every tropical dream. The sun will be shining and the start will out at night. These islands pack in the Hollywood glamour with movie starts competing for the best rooms at many resorts.
And if you visit during carnival, you will combine relaxing beach time with varietous fun. Another one of our picks at St. Martin, this island has a split personality, juggling both bustling excitement and rejuvenating calm. Visitors are torn between French and Dutch culture, beaches and casinos, spa treatments and zip lines. This island has it all. If pure relaxation is what you seek, we suggest Turks & Caicos, where you will be rewarded with private time on secluded beaches and in abandoned coves. For more adventurous types, scuba diving is the sport of choice, with many incredible reefs and dive sites to explore.
For many the Caribbean represents the Pinnacle of winter escapes. So be aware that it's the high season. Room rates and air fair will be costly, but the high rates are for good reason, the weather is simply heavenly and the island life always delivers an unforgettable holiday vacation.
