Known for its sandy seashell-strewn beaches, high-end hideaways and sumptuous spas, the Caribbean is an island chain 2,500 miles long with more than 7,000 islands, reefs, and cays, both independent nations and affiliated territories of France, Great Britain, the Netherlands and Spain.
Find your own private paradise for an intimate rendezvous or bring along the whole family for a relaxing all-inclusive summer on the shore.

The Caribbean has it all for the asking.
