OUR CARIBBEAN…….

From sunrise to sunset and around every corner, there’s something exciting in the Caribbean…….The Caribbean is a lively array of cultures, set like jewels in a landscape of white beaches, blue mountains and emerald jungle.  Along with steel drums, relaxed island culture, and cuisine both spicy and sweet, the charm and vibrancy of it’s people, makes an amazing tapestry that provides a backdrop for wonderful tropical island pictures. The landscape of the Caribbean is truly diverse.

The awe-inspiring Caribbean islands are made up of over 7000 islands, islets and reefs, and are situated south of the United States and just east of Mexico. Scattered between the larger islands of Cuba, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic are the smaller islands of the Bahamas, Barbados and Antigua.

One of the largest islands in the Eastern Caribbean, Puerto Rico’s landscape encompasses mountains, underground caves, coral reefs, white-sand beaches and an incredibly massive rain forest that supplies fresh water to most of the island. At the same time San Juan, the capital of the commonwealth, is a big city with a bustling business district, glitzy resorts and casinos, as well as one of the most stunning examples of colonial life in the Western world.(Some photos courtesy of Dario Endara: “A Taste of the Caribbean”)

Volcanic activity on the tiny island of Dominica yields natural gems like boiling pools, geysers, and black-sand beaches. Here, Caribbean water turns to steam as lava meets ocean………(Photograph by Michael Melford)

Weathered formations like Mushroom Rock dot the white-sand beaches of Bathsheba on the rugged east coast of Barbados.

Stormy waters breaking over the Malecón, Havana, Cuba’s famed seaside avenue, don’t slow the flow of rickshaws and antique U.S. automobiles. Like its classic cars, Havana’s seawall—built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers—is another relic of a bygone age. (Photograph by David Alan Harvey)
