  • In Praise of Le Piment, The Best Resto on Orient Bay, St. Martin
    Long lines must be avoided at all costs! This has long ranked among my top travel rules, the better to avoid the touristy and all-too-common. (Plus, I hate to wait.) Exceptions, though, are most definitely made when amazing food is at the end of said lines. Chicken Shack back home in St. Croix, Cavelle’s Cook Shop in Antigua, Zeerover’s in Aruba, Scotchie’s in Jamaica, Ziouka Glaces in Martinique ? all have proven well worth the wait through the years. On a recent trip to St. Martin, I was happy to add Le Piment to this distinguished list. It was a Saturday night, and contrary to my norm, I was intent on a quick and quiet meal.

  • How Best To Celebrate World Turtle Day
    Happy World Turtle Day! What? You didn’t know there was a special day dedicated to drawing attention to, and increasing knowledge of, and respect for one of the world’s most beloved sea creatures? Indeed, today is that day! To help us all celebrate World Turtle Day to the fullest, we’ve put together this handy list of amazing conservation organizations offering volunteer opportunities for uncommon travelers like you and me to help sea turtles shed their endangered status once and for all. From day trips working with conservationists to mark turtle nests, to weeks-long fully-immersive expeditions tagging, measuring, and monitoring sea turtles alongside leading scientists, these opportunities allow us to put our words of support for sea turtles into substantive action.

  • Uncommon Envy: Convent Cottage, Saba
    Anything I might write about Saba these days could fall under the “envy” category. Sure, I realized a lifelong dream by finally setting foot on this most uncommon corner of the Caribbean a couple years ago, but I only managed to stick around for a few hours. After one great lunch, a sneak-preview “hike,” and a little wandering up from The Bottom to Windwardside and back again, I was definitely left wanting more. MUCH more… Now comes word of a new villa option that has me more anxious than ever to spend a few days getting know all of Saba’s charms.

  • Hobie Sailing Through Sunday in Antigua
    Any Sunday spent by the sea in the Caribbean is a good one. Sundays spent on the sea are even better, of course. This is especially true amid the azure awesomeness of Carlisle Bay on Antigua’s southern coast.   *Photo credit: Flickr user Paul Drummond.

  • Time Out For TCI Pups
    Recently, we introduced you to the cute and cuddly pups at Potcake Place in Providenciales, TCI. Today, we’re actually taking you inside the place to meet a few of these special little guys up-close… As noted in that earlier story, Potcake Place is an all-volunteer organization doing amazing things to help stray dogs in the Turks and Caicos Islands. There are lots of different ways you can help when next you’re in Provo. From donating cash, old towels, blankets, and other needed items, to dropping by to help with beach outings, or even adopting one of these great pups and taking them home with you, Potcake Place provides a wide range of ways of all of us to help these disadvantaged dogs live a healthy and happy life.

  • Sunset At Ô Bar in Terre-de-Haut, Guadeloupe
    Experiencing sunrise from the highest point of Terre-de-Haut, the charming fairytale islet in the Les Saintes enclave of the Guadeloupe Islands, certainly took my breath away. The Sunset show in this special place is equally as amazing. The first sunset I enjoyed shortly after arriving in Terre-de-Haut, this awesome spectacle from the lookout point just below Fort Napoléon, was really nice. The scene above, though, truly blew me away. To get this view, amble over to Ô Bar, the funky little cantina sitting right next to the main dock in the center of town. The drink menu here is long and imaginative, though you don’t need to get fancy to enjoy the show. The post Sunset At Ô Bar in Terre-de-Haut, Guadeloupe appeared first on Uncommon Caribbean.

  • Casting Off From Bananier Beach, Haiti
    A salty liquid clouded my eyes. If anyone had asked, I’d have said it was just residue from the alluring azure seas we’d spent the day splashing about. The expression on my face would’ve no doubt betrayed my lies, though. We were leaving Bananier Beach, as sweet a secret beach as I’d ever come across on my Caribbean travels. Accessible solely by boat and completely inaccessible to cell phone reception, this secluded slice of beach heaven in southern Haiti is not the kind of place you leave easily. The struggle is both figurative and literal, as evidenced by the young man pictured here. The post Casting Off From Bananier Beach, Haiti appeared first on Uncommon Caribbean.

  • Uncommon Attraction: Le Tombolo de Sainte-Marie, Martinique
    Timing isn’t much of a determining factor for most uncommon travelers when planning trips to the Caribbean. The weather’s always great, food festivals, Carnival, and other cultural celebrations run year-round, and most adventure options are, of course, never out of season. Those keen on visiting this island particular, though, will want to keep an eye on a calendar. This is Îlet Sainte-Marie. It sits just over 650 feet offshore of its namesake town on the northeast coast of Martinique. The area, a few miles north of Trinite and the amazing natural wonders of the Caravelle Peninsula, rests in the shadow of Mt.

  • Wish You Were Here: Floating Around The Exumas at Sunset
    Sunset. The water, clear, cool, and inviting. The shore, deserted. The sun, fading fabulously, a few final streaks of technicolor stretching across the darkening sky, the stars remaining faint flickers in the twilight… for now. No better time for a quick dip. No better place than the Exumas.   *Photo credit: Colin Ruggiero.   The post Wish You Were Here: Floating Around The Exumas at Sunset appeared first on Uncommon Caribbean.

  • How Best To Go Chasing Waterfalls in Grenada
    Somehow, surprisingly, I’ve never taken the time to go chasing waterfalls during the scant few times I’ve been lucky enough to find myself in Grenada. This, in many ways, suggests that I never really got to know the real Grenada at all. Lush rainforests born of the island’s ancient volcanic origins drape interior highlands, spawning a life-giving network of 50+ rivers and streams stretching to the sea. Along the way, waterfalls of varying size await intrepid, and not-so-adventurous travelers alike, roadways skirting virtually to the doorstep of the more accessible falls. As elsewhere in the Caribbean where rivers and waterfalls abound, these freshwater oases carry strong cultural significance in Grenada.
