Vacation like the Real Pirates of the Caribbean

Vacation like the Real Pirates of the Caribbean

by Hope Heldmar

Pirates and Caribbean are forever connected. So find out what all of the hubub's about and "maroon" yourself next to a magnificent resort, on a beauty of a beach with your favorite parrot or sweetheart. We've got three resorts, set amid waters once roamed by the real pirates of the Caribbean, that would be the envy of Blackbeard and Captain Jack Sparrow.

From the Bahamas to Roatan, many islands claim to be the major stronghold for the 'real' Caribbean pirates. A good place to start is to drop your anchor at British Colonial Hilton Nassau. There, you'll find it easy to walk in the footsteps of history. This sophisticated five-star resort offers a luxurious oasis from which to venture. Amass your loot from the nearby Straw Market, visit the interactive pirate museum or simply perfect your tan on the private beach. Then, ponder the history of pirates and the Caribbean with a cool rum concoction.

Named for that rascal English buccaneer, Henry Morgan Resort on Roatan is our choice for the perfect escape from reality. Up to 5,000 Caribbean pirates, including Henry Morgan and Captain John Coxen (for whom Coxen Hole is named), once roamed this Caribbean hotspot. If you can tear yourself away from Roberto's salsa dance classes on the beach or the terrific spa, you'll find countless island adventures. You can walk the plank and swim with dolphins, visit a pirate cave at Gumbalimba Park or fly by zipline, from a mountaintop, down to a sugar-white beach.

While Jamaica's claim to piratical fame, Port Royal, was destroyed by an earthquake, the island boasts other spots that keep the legends alive. But if you're not inclined to follow National Geographic's pirate trail, head to the opposite end of Jamaica and make Iberostar Rose Hall Suites your port of call. Luxurious accommodations, five-star service and fine dining let you live large in this corner of tropical paradise.

Gather yer mates, lift anchor and savor a vacation that's worth a pirate's treasure. There may not be Caribbean pirates sailing these crystalline waters, but you'll feel like the master of your world at these cool resorts!
