Originally a fort built by the U.S. Army in 1838, during the Second Seminole War, Ft. Lauderdale has little left of its warlike past.

St. Kitts remains uncrowded and unspoiled, famous around the world for excellent preservation of ecosystems. Take advantage of tours through lava formations, tropical forest areas, and seaside lagoons. Boating tours and scuba diving expeditions are also favorite activities. Plantation homes have been transformed into grand, intimate inns. Quaint shopping areas and beautiful Colonial architecture draw visitors to tiny towns. Spectacular Mount Liamuiga, a dormant volcano at the island's center, dominates the landscape. Hike through the dense tropical forest of central slopes and tramp across the lava formations. Black, white and golden sand beaches invite lounging and sipping frozen drinks. Home to the Federation's capital city, Basseterre, St Kitts is known for its well-preserved, picturesque colonial structures. Due to the sunken vessels, virgin reefs and other submerged natural wonders, dive enthusiasts are now discovering that beauty runs deep. St. Kitts is best known for its relaxed atmosphere and stunning natural beauty.

The largest of the Les Saintes islands, off the southern coast of Guadeloupe, Terre-de-Haut is a tropical paradise.  Its calm waters provide an excellent environment for snorkeling.  Rent a moped and explore the island, visit the 19th century penitentiary turned museum at Fort Napoleon or simply relax on the sandy shores of Terre-de-Haut.

A lush volcanic island, just 18 miles north to south and 11 miles wide, St. Vincent's windward coast is lined with cliffs and rocky shores pounded by the Atlantic ocean. The leeward coast has spectacular slopes and valleys running down to beaches lapped by the tranquil Caribbean Sea. The Capital, Kingstown, combines reminders of its colonial past with the bright and bustling life of a modern market town.

Devil's Island

11/3/2017 6:00:00 PM

In addition to being site of France's satellite launching base, French Guiana is perhaps best known for the infamous penal colony to which convicts and undesirables were deported from France. For a long time the small archipelago (the Safety Islands) was known by the name of "Devil's Island." The three islands - Devil's Island, Ile Royale and Ile St. Joseph - are about one hour by boat from the mainland. Their notorious convict settlements were built in 1852. On the almost inaccessible Devil's Island, political prisoners like Alfred Dreyfus were held in isolation. The prisoner who became most famous was doubtless Henri Charrière, who was immortalized in the movie "Papillon" for supposedly being the only convict who managed to escape from "the Green Hell." Of 80,000 prisoners sent to the islands, some 50,000 died here. Visit the prison ruins or the Kourou Space Centre.

Alter Do Chão (Amazon River)

11/6/2017 5:00:00 PM

Turning out of the muddy Amazon is the blue Rio Tapajos and the village of Alter do Chao. Tour the Center for Preservation of Indigenous Arts, with displays on the lifestyles of local tribes. Or cross to a white sand beach for a refreshing swim in the clear river waters.

Parintins (Amazon River)
11/7/2017 8:00:00 AM
11/7/2017 5:00:00 PM

The little Indian village of Parintins lies beside the river on Tupinambarana Island, amid the largest archipelago of the Lower Amazon. The community can trace its history back through two centuries and still proudly celebrates its traditional Indian culture. On a shore visit you will be entertained at a special recreation of the villagers' annual 'Boi Bumba' festival, featuring some truly spectacular costumes and unique traditional music.

Manaus (Amazon River)
11/8/2017 7:00:00 AM
11/8/2017


The capital of the State of Amazonas, the belle époque splendor of Manaus is still evident in the graceful mansions and the Teatro Amazonas opera house. This city, resting on the Rio Negro, was created by the rubber boom of the mid-19th-century, when steam navigation opened up the Amazon to entrepreneurs and the social elite. Today, stroll down the Parisian-styled boulevards and Italian piazzas, or watch the fisherman at Municipal Market unload their catch of the day on the river’s edge.

Boca Da Valeria is a remote little Indian community, set at the entrance of the Valeria river on a 400ft hill overlooking the Amazon River and is reached by zodiac or tender. It is located between Parintins and Santarem. Calls allow exploration of the jungle in quest of monkeys, butterflies and the colourful birdlife, - and the opportunity to buy wooden carvings and gourd masks, and see something of the, simple traditional lifestyle of the villagers.

Santarem
11/11/2017 8:00:00 AM
11/11/2017 5:00:00 PM

Today, Santarem is one of the Amazon’s most important trading centers, and is rich in legend and nature. The town is situated at the point where the Tapajos and the Amazon waters meet. This is called the “Wedding of the waters” and is one of Santarem’s major attractions. The lakes and forests of this area are home to numerous species of birds, particularly the white egret.

The capital of Tobago, Scarborough, is also one of its busiest tourist destinations. While visiting the city, see the historical Fort King George which was built in the 1780’s as a British colonial outpost. And what town would be complete without an open-air market? At the Scarborough Market, shop with the locals for fruits, vegetables, livestock and other goods.

St. John's, Antigua
11/17/2017 8:00:00 AM
11/17/2017 3:00:00 PM

The skyline of St. John's, the capital and largest city of Antigua and Barbuda, is dominated by the magnificently evocative white baroque towers of St. John's Cathedral. Built in 1845, the church is now in its third incarnation, as earthquakes in 1683 and in 1745 destroyed the previous structures. The towers are the first sight of Antigua for about half of the island's visitors each year, many of whom arrive by boat. St. John's is a lively hub for shopping and dining.
