Another year and more unrest with the aviation industry work force. It seems every holiday period either baggage handlers, flight attendants or airport workers decide to take industrial action against their employers and who suffers? We the paying public.
If you travel to the Mediterranean resorts there are a large number of countries you have to fly across of which any one can disrupt your travel arrangements. Even if you decide not to fly and travel by car, we in the UK have the added problem of crossing the English Channel by ferry or Channel Tunnel.
If you want a high chance of getting away on your holiday at what ever time of year you plan to go then why not consider a holiday to a Caribbean island? If you live in the UK then once you are airborne and leave UK airspace you will fly across the Atlantic for about eight hours to your destination. The next country you cross will probably be the island you have booked for your Caribbean holiday or vacation.
Also you should consider an all-inclusive holiday as some islands of the Caribbean can be expensive in restaurants for meals and drinks, although not all. The Caribbean describes over 7000 islands and conjures up images of pirates and reggae music. Although the pirates are long gone the reggae music is prevalent in different forms across all the islands of the Caribbean.
700 out of the 7000 islands of the Caribbean are inhabited. Most are surrounded by clear blue waters with un-spoilt white sandy beaches. Some of the islands are volcanic and most have extraordinary reefs which are ideal for exploring the vast range of tropical sea life.
If you venture inland to the interior of some of the islands you will find water falls cascading down beautiful valleys, and every where you will find the most unusual and exotic flowers and plants including a wide range of wildlife.
Most locals who work in the tourist trade on all of the islands speak English along with their own native tongue. The cultures across the Caribbean are diverse and the atmosphere on the all islands is relaxing and happy brought about by the local people who are welcoming and friendly.
