Elegant hotels dating from the 19th century (the Kura Hulanda Hotel is best) Willemstad make the perfect place to start exploring the city’s floating markets, the bridges named after Dutch queens, a museum which displays relics of the slave trade and café that looks very much like those in Amsterdam. The beaches are also excellent so make good and rent a car to discover the hidden coves and isolated north and see the plantations of Christoffel National Park.
Haiti is not for everyone, but as this nation has struggled to revive after the earthquake of 2010, tourism began to gain momentum and impetus to some extent and the country’s economic development. Nearly 130 kilometers south of the capital Port-au-Prince, Jacmel is a charming city that has not been so destroyed by the earthquake. Here there are many Victorian era buildings, cafes, bazaars that sell beautiful handicrafts and beautiful beaches. Make a day trip to the grotto waterfalls or you can ride in exchange for 20 or 25 dollars to the area where water pools are cobalt color. Located in a residence dating from the Victorian, Flora Hotel, destroyed but rebuilt, evokes the spirit of a century ago, which is found in furniture and room balconies. From Port-au-Prince can take bus to Jacmel, the journey lasts 3 hours.
Cockburn Town, Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos
This multi-island country’s capital, Cockburn is where they live 5500 inhabitants, situated on an island that measures only 10 kilometers long. Boats anchor here for several hours, but rustic and charming place requires much more time to explore. In town you will find houses in colonial style, color, aligned along the narrow streets, where you can see donkeys and carts now and here there are many historical sites, including the place – as the locals say – where Christopher Columbus first set foot in the so-called New World, in 1492. Northern beaches, including Pillory or Corktree, are mostly empty, while the best locations for snorkeling and diving is in the south (Oasis Divers offers equipment for practicing these sports). Best place where you can accommodate is Island House, a location with Mediterranean and where guests can use the hotel free of cars. But what you really need in Grand Turk, is a bicycle.
