Departure: 6:00 PM
If you associate Puerto Rico's capital with the colonial streets of Old San Juan, then you know only part of the picture. San Juan is a major metropolis, radiating out from the bay on the Atlantic Ocean that was discovered by Juan Ponce de León. More than a third of the island's nearly 4 million citizens proudly call themselves “Sanjuaneros”. The city may be rooted in the past, but it has its eye on the future. Locals go about their business surrounded by colonial architecture and towering modern structures.
Monday, 02 Dec
Arrival: 8:00 AM, Departure: 6:00 PM
Stretching just over 20 km, Anguilla is the discrete gem of the Caribbean. Still to be featured in the spotlight of Caribbean tourism, the white-sanded beaches, pristine waters and palm trees of the island make it a paradisiac destination that regularly attracts the likes of many American actors such as Denzel Washington, Robert de Niro and more recently Brad Pitt. A must-see for the avid traveler.
ST. KITTS (Basseterre)
Tuesday, 03 Dec
Arrival: 8:00 AM, Departure: 6:00 PM
Mountainous St. Kitts, the first English settlement in the Leeward Islands, crams some stunning scenery into its 65 square miles (168 square km). Vast, brilliant green fields of sugarcane (the former cash crop, now slowly being replanted) run to the shore. The fertile, lush island has some fascinating natural and historical attractions: a rain forest replete with waterfalls, thick vines, and secret trails; a central mountain range dominated by the 3,792-foot Mt. Liamuiga, whose crater has long been dormant, and Brimstone Hill, known in the 18th century as the Gibraltar of the West Indies St.
Wednesday, 04 Dec
Arrival: 8:00 AM, Departure: 11:00 PM
Although it's one of the smallest capitals in the Caribbean, Roseau has the highest concentration of inhabitants of any town in the eastern Caribbean. Caribbean vernacular architecture and a bustling marketplace transport take visitors back in time. Although you can walk the entire town in about an hour, you'll get a much better feel for the place on a leisurely stroll. For some years now, the Society for Historical Architectural Preservation and Enhancement (SHAPE) has organized programs and projects to preserve the city's architectural heritage.
CASTRIES (St. Lucia)
Thursday, 05 Dec
Arrival: 9:00 AM, Departure: 6:00 PM
With a lush interior featuring towering mountains, dense rainforest, fertile valleys, and acres of banana plantations, St. Lucia is mostly distinguished by the Pitons – twin peaks that soar high above the ocean floor on the southwest coast. Whether you stay in Soufrière, in the north or around Rodney Bay Village, or even farther north at Cap Estate, exploring the iconic natural sights – and local history – in Soufrière is a day well spent. Except for a small area in the extreme northeast, one main highway circles all of St. Lucia.
FALMOUTH (English Harbour)
Friday, 06 Dec
Arrival: 8:00 AM, Departure: 6:00 PM
The British colonial influence is everywhere in pretty English Harbour. And yet, located on Antigua’s south coast, you are just minutes away from some of the loveliest beaches in the Caribbean. With its long ribbons of white sandy shores including the superbly named Rendez-Vous Bay Beach, the cold English drizzle and chimes of big ben have never been farther away! English Harbour is how the Caribbean is meant to be. Beautifully restored, the area still retains much in the way of its rich historic past.
Saturday, 07 Dec
Arrival: 8:00 AM, Departure: 6:00 PM
The bustling capital of the BVI looks out over Road Harbour. It takes only an hour or so to stroll down Main Street and along the waterfront, checking out the traditional West Indian buildings painted in pastel colors and with corrugated-tin roofs, bright shutters, and delicate fretwork trim. For sightseeing brochures and the latest information on everything from taxi rates to ferry schedules, stop in at the BVI Tourist Board office.
