Celebrating New Year's in the Caribbean

Celebrating New Year's in the Caribbean

by Roberto Jaimes

Say good-bye to the old, and ring in the new with a Caribbean getaway. The very first US celebrations of New Year's Eve in the Caribbean are at Point Udall on St. Croix. And from there, every other island joins in. Here are three terrific destinations that offer great ways to celebrate and begin the new year with wonderful memories.

If you've ever dreamed of living like a rock star, and rockin' the Red Carpet with a glam look for New Year's Eve, then Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana is your New Year's dream come true. During the day, there are themed pool and beach activities, live music and DJs. In the evening, prepare for the hottest party on the island with a rock concert, special guest stars and a grand finale. If you're still going strong after midnight, live out your dreams with their picks(TM) Fender guitar room service. Now that's how to rock out!

Yearning for luxury at a boutique resort on world-class Orient Bay? Esmeralda Resort on St. Martin has that covered. Private pools, elegant accommodations in pastel-colored villas and a gourmet French restaurant create an idyllic escape in the French West Indies. Celebrate New Year's Eve with a private champagne toast in a romantic suite, or head to the beach for the celebratory fireworks display. All together now, Oooooh! aaaaah!

Atlantis Paradise Island Royal Tower has what promises to be one of the more extravagant New Year's Eve celebrations in the entire Caribbean. Their New Year's Eve extravaganza begins with cocktails, followed by a lavish dinner. The party theme is Burlesque, a steamy world of sumptuous costumes, dazzling lights and live musical performances. Plus, there's plenty of action in the casinos and nightclubs. After the party, spend the rest of the week exploring the 141-acre water park, practicing your swing on the 18-hole Tom Weiskopf golf course or playing with the kids on the gorgeous beach. 2013 will go down as the best family vacation year in history.

A match made in heaven, the Caribbean and New Year's Eve together are our idea for a perfect vacation. Make your plans for New Year's Eve in the Caribbean now!
