Island Girl’s Guide to Carriacou, Grenada

There’s island life and then there’s island life in Carriacou. So small you can drive around the entire island and the gas needle barely moves; so slow-paced, time is indicated in vague terms with tour guides scheduling pick-ups and drop-offs ‘around’ a certain hour; and so idyllic the white sand and clear water look like scenes …

5 Things to Do in Tobago (Beyond the Beaches)

There’s a lot to be said about Tobago’s beaches, but I’ll keep it brief: They’re awesome. More awesome than a quarter of the beaches in the Caribbean. Just as awesome as half the stretches of coastline throughout the archipelago. And admittedly less awesome than the remaining quarter of truly idyllic real estate, where crystal clear waters …

My First Night Dive: Crazy, Scary, Beautiful

Dive No. 14 Location: Kariwak Reef, Tobago Depth: 40 ft Dive Shop: Undersea Tobago, Coco Reef Beach Resort, Tobago Highlights: First night dive…nuff said. Details: Night diving is an awesome, mind-blowing, life-altering experience, but it is not for the faint of heart. At present, my heart is still slightly faint. But with practice, I’m confident …
