Holy Guacamole Day! Fabulous Caribbean Food

Holy Guacamole Day! Fabulous Caribbean Food

by Kevin Patterson

A few hundred years ago, the Aztecs whipped up a dish with a few avocados, tomatoes and onions and came up with that green gold, Guacamole. It's something nearly everyone loves. Best of all, it pairs perfectly with chips, burgers and salads.

And in honor of National Guacamole Day (September 16th), we're sharing our secret family recipe, along with two fabulous Caribbean resorts. One boasts authentic Mexican food and another reveals a Bermuda restaurant you'll adore.

Dreaming of a fabulous Caribbean vacation and gourmet dining? Start packing for Secrets The Vine Cancun! This adults-only paradise boasts menus ranging from authentic Mexican food, steaks, fresh seafood and pizza to Tunisian and Moroccan cuisine. It also has an extensive wine cellar, candlelit dinners for two by the sea and seven gourmet venues. If that's not enough, the resort participates in the Sip, Savor & See Dining Experience at neighboring Secrets resorts. Just be sure to take advantage of the resort's excellent calorie burning activities. Though we promise not to tell if you spend that time lounging with a top-shelf drink, courtesy of one of the three bars.

Named the best in Bermuda by the World Travel Awards, and home to a fabulous Bermuda restaurant, the picture perfect Coco Reef Bermuda is a sure-fire winner. Helmed by award-winning Chef Jason Prangnell, Coco Cafe offers yummy international fare and gorgeous Caribbean views. We dare you to pick a favorite among such offerings as olive oil poached Bermuda wahoo, and spiny lobster cassoulet. And a well-stocked wine cellar makes pairing a snap. Or, try Darnell's Bloody Marys. They're the best we've tasted.

Wondering how to keep the kids happy and dine like a king on vacation? Dreams Tulum is the answer. The dining choices easily match the world-class facilities. And you'll please everyone at the World Cafe, an international buffet where children get a special Kid's Corner. For more variety, take your pick of international favorites like a la carte Japanese and Mexican delicacies, grilled seafood served at a location on the beach, or an Adults-Only romantic French dinner.

Whether you're just looking for the perfect guacamole recipe or are ready to sample the best Caribbean food around, our travel agents can steer you to a resort with authentic Mexican food and an authentic, idyllic setting that's perfect for you.
