  • Meet the Kooky Coconut Man of Costa Rica
    The prevailing style of dress in Tortuguero, the wild and wonderfully remote village on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, is anything but fancy. Clean and/or dry shirts are fairly uncommon. Shoes? They’re optional. Ties? In the jungle? Are you serious? Visitors and locals alike here tend to dress down, loosely soiled and slightly tattered threads of a style and type you might more closely associate with yard work or auto repair de rigueur all along Tortuguero’s muddy streets. The exception: The Kooky Coconut Man pictured above. We met along the path that leads out of town toward Mawamba Lodge, his decidedly atypical and eccentric (that hat!) fashion just part of what forced me to stop.

  • Take a Moment to Rise Above it All in Antigua
    What does it feel like to rise above it all? It seems like “all” is just so many things! The traffic. That family member. The subways! That smell! That person in line ordering the most elaborate drink known to man, while you’re just trying to grab a coffee. That thing you bought, which now you hate. That friend that hasn’t texted back. The people who have texted back! “All” is every one of the incessant notifications vibrating and pinging that needy device in your pocket. Look at this! Look at that! Stop what you’re doing! Stop thinking! Just look! That coworker. The post Take a Moment to Rise Above it All in Antigua appeared first on Uncommon Caribbean.

  • Snorkeling Tugboat Beach, Curacao
    The beach itself is nothing to write home about. Dirt-brown sand, rocks; an altogether arid landscape devoid of the shade trees and soaring palms so common of most everyone’s ideal vision of Caribbean shores. You don’t go to Tugboat Beach for common seaside lounging, though. It’s the beach’s namesake, a tugboat wreck sitting just offshore, that’s the real draw. The depth of the wreck: about 15 feet. The water: crystal-clear as is typical of Curacao. The snorkeling fun: endless. Wish you were here..?   *Photo credit: Flickr user f. ermert.

  • Escape to White Island In The Grenadines? Permanently!
    Current events have a lot us hankering for a permanent getaway to a tropical island somewhere. (Maybe not so much here, though.) For those with the means that want the ultimate in seclusion with their permanent getaway, there’s no shortage of private island real estate for sale in the Caribbean. The latest one on our wish list: White Island. Located in Grenada’s section of the Grenadines, White Island sits just one mile off the southern tip of Carriacou. It’s name is derived from the positively pristine white sands that line the 10-acre land mass. The other surrounds here aren’t too shabby either… Pretty sweet, right?

  • Introducing The Caribe Ginger Smith Rum Cocktail
    When life gives you lemons… Yeah, yeah, we all know you make lemonade. But, what do you do when the lemons are rum? More specifically, Ron Caribe? A product of Mexico aged five years and produced, according to boasts printed on the bottle, using “traditional methods of Rum Masters since 1935,” Ron Caribe is many things. Ron Caribe de Mexico | SBPR Most of all. it’s affordable. Only $17 per bottle. Second most of all, it’s very light in color. No amber waves of extra-added caramel-coloring here. At least none that I can discern. Third most of all, it’s super-heavy on the vanilla and toffee notes. The post Introducing The Caribe Ginger Smith Rum Cocktail appeared first on Uncommon Caribbean.

  • New Haitian-Egyptian Culinary Treats at Marriott Port-au-Prince
    There’s a new executive chef at The Marriott Port-au-Prince, news that in and of itself is not necessarily a huge deal. I mean, lots of amazing hotels all over Haiti and the rest of the Caribbean sign on new chefs all the time. I’m particularly excited about this new chef hire, though. In fact, there are 10,208 reasons for my excitement. That’s the number of miles separating Chef Karem Khater’s hometown, Cairo, with his new home in Haiti. While Haiti and Egypt might seem an odd match to those unfamiliar with Haitian history, culture, and cuisine, the pairing actually makes a lot of sense to those of us in the know.

  • Thanks For Cancelling My Flight to Jamaica, Spirit Airlines? No Really!
    Eyes narrowed simmering with anger… View most any commercial jet airliner head-on as above and it’s almost impossible to avoid ascribing some similarly perfunctory personification. For many travelers, this applies exponentially when the air carrier in question is Spirit Airlines. The airline everyone loves to hate… You know Spirit Airlines, Home Of The Bare Fare, distasteful marketing, and notorious nickel-and-diming over seemingly ever aspect of the inflight experience. There’s scarcely ever been a more disliked airline. (For more on this, see spirit-sucks.net.) You never know… So, knowing all of this negative stuff, as any travel industry vet like me should, I’ve long made a point of avoiding Spirit Airlines at all costs.

  • Forget Broadway! Get To Know The REAL Alexander Hamilton in St. Croix
    I came to know the real Alexander Hamilton in the shadow of this building, the historic Old Danish Customs House (est. 1734) located within the Christiansted National Historic Site on my home island of St. Croix. The occasion: an elementary school field trip into our storied island’s colorful past. Now, when I say the real Alexander Hamilton I don’t mean all the major things he did to help establish the United States of America. We covered that stuff in history class. No, the Hamilton I got to know here was the guy who spent his formative years, just like me, living and working in St. The post Forget Broadway!

  • Swimming With Sharks In Exuma, The Bahamas
    Any week can be Shark Week when you’re visiting the Exuma Islands where controlled encounters with docile nurse sharks are a top attraction. That’s nice and all, but it’s scenes like this that REALLY get our adrenaline juices flowing! Caribbean reef sharks like these are among the most notoriously aggressive of the species. They’re also the most common type of sharks found throughout the Exuma chain. Thankfully, though, they barely pay us humans any mind. Dive into fun on most any offshore reef in the Exumas and you’re bound to see these guys in action, darting about sharply over the reefs in search of food; an breathtaking show well beyond any Sharknado silliness.

  • Photo of the Day: Wet with Wildlife on Little Cayman
    I take a lot of photos on our trips. It’s not uncommon for me to return with thousands and thousands of them. In the heat of the moment, something catches my eye, I try my best to frame it up and capture not just the action, but also the feeling of what it’s like to be at that exact place and time. But sometimes something doesn’t go as planned. It’s usually because very little we do is planned. Moments just happen. So, as much as I’m trying to capture the moment, I’m also trying to live in the moment. Such was the case with this photo.
