Warm Sun and Hot Nights: Best of the Caribbean
If your idea of one of the best Caribbean vacations is an island that's warm by day and hot at night, then you've come to the right place! Luscious beaches and crystal-blue waters serve up picture-perfect tropical retreats. And when the sun goes down, it's time to kick your vacation into high gear.
Party-loving travelers have long known that Cancun is one of the best hotspots in the Caribbean for non-stop action. Now, the spectacular Riu Palace Las Americas gives them a terrific starting point for memorable Caribbean vacations. Whether it's perfecting their tan on Caracol Beach, around the yummy pool graced by Greco-Roman architecture, or sampling the extensive nightlife of the energetic Hotel Zone, hotel guests are never at a loss for something to do. Don't forget that this all inclusive resort boasts its own trendy nightclub, Pacha!
Head east to Jamaica for a jammin' experience that lasts all day and all night. Throughout the island, all the major resorts have hopping bars and happening dance clubs. In Montego Bay, the Hip Strip buzzes with activity late into the night, and Gloucester Avenue is lined with some of the island's top watering holes and clubs for easy bar-hopping. Directly on the Hip Strip in Montego Bay, you'll find the Royal Decameron Club Caribbean. With all meals, snacks and drinks included, all you have to do is show up, gussy up and head out for a great night on the town.
A little closer to home, Puerto Rico's San Juan draws visitors galore thanks to year-round sun and lack of passport requirements for US citizens. The lure of hitting it big in the 24-hour casino ups the ante for guests of the luxurious Conrad San Juan Condado Plaza. There's an irresistible beach, three pools and a swim-up bar to keep you happy while the sun smiles on you. Toss on your favorite party clothes and hit the tables to test your poker face and skill with the dice in a 15,000-sq-ft casino. Celebrate your winnings by hitting high-energy venues like Club Brava and Ultra Lounge. Not sure how to meringue or salsa? Ask the hotel's staff to arrange lessons for you and your favorite partner.
