12 Reasons We Love Caribbean Christmas

12 Reasons We Love Caribbean Christmas

by Kevin Patterson

A visit to the Caribbean is always a good thing, but a Caribbean Christmas is the best time of all. Tipping our hat to a favorite holiday tune, we've got 12 reasons why a Christmas vacation in the Caribbean should be on your list this year.

Caribbean Christmas Vacation Caribbean Christmas Vacation - St. Lucia
Who wants a partridge in a tree? Visit the Caribbean for crystal-blue waters, perfect white-sand beaches and resorts that cater to your every whim. Now that's a gift. While turtle doves are for lovers, your special someone might appreciate an escape to a couples-only resort even more. Head to Rendezvous St. Lucia for some of the best pampering and couples only fun around!

Caribbean Christmas Vacation - Cancun Caribbean Christmas Vacation - Puerto Rico
You can't do better than Cancun, which garners rave reviews from travelers in the know. Although the secret is out on how great Cancun is, you're still going to love Secrets Playa Mujeres with its romantic setting, all-inclusive luxury and gorgeous views. Need four calling birds to make the perfect Caribbean Christmas? Visit tropical US national parks to hear those calling birds. San Juan NHS includes Castillo San Felipe del Morro. Virgin Islands National Park spans 7,000+ plus acres over two islands.

Caribbean Christmas Vacation - Puerto Rico Caribbean Christmas Vacation - Turtle Beach
With the price of gold, forget the five rings. Stay at one of Conde Nast Traveler's Gold List resorts! St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort offers pure luxury and pure secluded paradise. Sea turtles are way better than geese (or turtle doves), and at Turtle Beach Resort you can spot a hatchling making its way to the water in December!

Caribbean Christmas Vacation - Atlantis Paradise Island Caribbean Christmas Vacation - Mayan Ruins
Swans would give anything to be a guest at Atlantis Paradise Island Beach Tower! That 141-acre water park easily replaces sugar plums in our dreams. You might have to travel back in time to find maids doing the milking, but Christmas travel lets you mix history with fun as you walk in the footsteps of Christopher Columbus, learn about pirates or discover Mayan wonders.

Caribbean Christmas Vacation - Aruba Caribbean Christmas Vacation - Adventure
Head to Aruba, and dance, dance, dance. Palm Beach is home to hip clubs, and Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino wins our vote for where to wind down after the party. The talented staff at Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach Resort teaches guests to leap through the air with trapeze lessons!

Caribbean Christmas Vacation - Music Festivals Caribbean Christmas Vacation - Beaches
For fans of cool jazz and reggae, a vacation in the Caribbean makes it easy to attend some of the best music festivals around. And finally, drum-roll please! The main reason why we love Caribbean getaways? It's all about the beaches!

So this year, ask Santa for the gift of a Caribbean Christmas. It's easy to wrap, fits under any tree and comes with a lifetime of memories.
