  • Faith in St. Croix in the Face of Hurricane Maria
    When are you guys coming down..? Her words sang out with the unbridled joy of a church choir in full praise ?? lighthearted, carefree, though unmistakably tinged with resolution… with faith. Miss Jeanne always talks like this. That a Cat 5 hurricane should be bearing down on her, and everyone else on St. Croix, as she spoke to the wife by phone two nights ago mattered little. Me and my twins with Miss Jeanne and Fico in St. Croix a few years ago… She had done this drill before, lived to tell the tale, worked tirelessly along with other Crucians to re-build St. The post Faith in St. Croix in the Face of Hurricane Maria appeared first on Uncommon Caribbean.

  • Making A Run For the Sandbars of Bimini, The Bahamas
    You can seemingly run forever on the sandbars strewn about the Bimini archipelago of islets, rocks, and cays in the most westerly corner of The Bahamas. This particular bar fast became a favorite of ours when we dropped anchor off Gun Cay five Labor Day Weekends ago, the kids especially reveling in the wide open sandy expanse to run… Chasing clouds across a sandbar in Bimini. The Bahamas | SBPR and run… Chasing birds in Bimini | SBPR and run some more, chasing after birds, clouds, fish, and wayward football passes all day long.

  • What Makes Puerto Rico The Most Mystical Place in the Caribbean?
    Recently, Patrick and I had the chance to discuss Caribbean myths and legends with a few UC fans in the Midwest. It was a lively conversation, as you might imagine, touching on many of the childhood myths, legends, and tall tales that formed so much of the foundation for the value system we’ve long followed, and are today imparting to our own kids. The conversation remained fresh in my mind days later when I came across the fantastic image, captured by our old friend and UC photo contributor, José Francisco Salgado, PhD. A fairytale waterfall deep in the heart of El Yunque, the massive (28,000 acres) and mystical rainforest covering much of Puerto Rico’s eastern edge.

  • View With A Room: Tara Suites Over Eagle Beach, Aruba
    It’s a view well worth waking early to savor ?? amazing Eagle Beach, Aruba as seen from the fourth floor balcony of my room at the Bucuti and Tara Beach Resort. “Room” actually doesn’t do justice to the dushi digs I got to enjoy here with the wife last summer. Technically, all the “rooms” on floors one?four in the Tara Wing are called Tara Suites. The only room category above them, literally and figuratively, are the Penthouse Suites that grace the fifth floor. The Penthouse is pretty sweet, as you can see here, though Tara Suites like ours more than hold their own when it comes to romantic elegance.

  • Wading About Le Gosier, Guadeloupe
    It was a hot and steamy Wednesday morning in late-March when I awoke in Le Gosier eager to embark on my first bit of adventuring around Guadeloupe in more than 25 years. The possibilities for fun and uncommon exploration seemed endless. Should I scale La Grande Soufrière, or hop over to Les Saintes? What about trekking over to Marie-Galante to sample some of its amazing rhum agricole, or checking out this sinfully good local restaurant in Deshaies? My head was spinning from all the options, aided in no small part by the initial taste of Guadeloupe rhum I’d enjoyed the night before.

  • Running Free Along The Shores of Five Cays, Turks and Caicos
    Pure, unadulterated joy. Remember what this felt like ?? running as fast as you ever thought you ever could on the beach in the twilight? Total cares: zero. It’s a feeling I like to try and replicate along my travels, especially when I’m adventuring around the Turks and Caicos. Long stretches of brilliant white sand, like those along Grace Bay, invite such sublime exertion, though there are other great spots around these special islands where you can channel your childlike inner Usain Bolt. The beach where sits Bugaloo’s Conch Crawl in Five Cays Settlement is just such a place. That’s where I captured this little girl exemplifying the type of carefree joy we could all use a lot more of these days… The post Running Free Along The Shores of Five Cays, Turks and Caicos appeared first on Uncommon Caribbean.

  • 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.
