Saba, the Netherlands’ smallest municipality at five square miles, lies just off St. Maarten and can be accessed from there via a twelve-minute plane ride. You’ll find no white sandy beaches in Saba, as the island consists largely of the potentially active volcano and lush rainforest. Even better, you’ll find no... Read More

What does “affordable” mean when you’re Richard Branson?

Curaçao, former Dutch Caribbean colony of the Netherlands Antilles, may be known for spectacular underwater dive sites as much as its eponymous blue liqueur, but there are plenty of seafaring activities to do on the surface of its cerulean waters as well — a popular one being windsurfing.

Every September, hotels ramp up their wellness offerings to honor National Yoga Month. While a discounted yoga package with your stay is nice, the beauty of yoga is that you can do it anytime, anywhere.

We know how hard it is to find an all-inclusive deal in Puerto Rico. So we were thrilled when the Wyndham Grand Rio Mar launched a new program last month that gives guests unlimited access to its bars, restaurants, and other amenities. Because, let’s face it — it’s nice to... Read More

Between the crystal blue water, dense foliage, and sweeping waterfalls, Dominica has rightfully earned its nickname the Nature Island. Not to be confused with the Dominican Republic (which shares Hispaniola with Haiti), Dominica is just a stone’s throw from Martinique — and is accessible from the French island without an...
