Island Girl’s Travel Guide to Petite Martinique

Disclaimer: Petite Martinique isn’t for everyone. But it just might be for you…That is, if you’re the kind of traveler who appreciates a waaaay off-the-grid experience. One defined by a raw, unassuming landscape and authentic small-island living, which facilitates an almost complete disconnect from the rest of the world. On PM, as the locals fondly refer to …

First Impressions: Petite Martinique

Less than a day in Petite Martinique and already I’m blogging about it. Unusual for me, but there’s absolutely nothing ‘usual’ about Petite Martinique (by my medium-sized-island-girl standards). Plus, the fact is there’s little else to do at 9:05 on a Thursday night. Already, all doors are closed, lights are off and there is nary a …

Island Girl’s Travel Guide to Cuba

An eclectic mix of architectural designs through the ages, some immaculately maintained others crumbling and weathered. Kaleidoscopic facades straddling faded exteriors. Mint condition vintage cars cruising beside struggling antiques. Live music. Colorful art. And some of the most friendly and accommodating people I’ve ever encountered. Welcome to Cuba. Finally!

Grenada: The Great Escape to Sandy Island, Carriacou

Sandals off. Locks loose. Body stretched out on a surprisingly comfortable bed of fallen coconut tree branches…that was my conduct for most of the afternoon I spent on Sandy Island. To say I painted a cliched picture of #islandlife would be an understatement, but I make no apologies for it. Because for all the times I used …

Grenada: Hog Island, Uninterrupted

Visiting Hog Island during the week is like purchasing a private island at the bargain price of $20 EC per head. For the cost of roundtrip boat passage from the fishing village of Woburn to the island, you could find yourself blissfully undisturbed on this tiny L-shaped strip of beach. That’s a pretty sweet deal in my book. I …

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 …
