The Caribbean Resorts, Not Just A Beach Haven

Mar 15, 2008
A trip to the Caribbean resorts is always an exciting adventure for any holidaymaker. There is nothing more appealing than lazing under the blazing hot sun, on the warm white sand and watching the ocean wave back fourth. This for me is the most relaxing point of my time, whereby all my troubles simply drift away and all I have to worry about is topping up on my sun lotion avoiding a nasty burn.

However, some people prefer not to just lie around in the sun; some people enjoy exploring the area, sampling cultural cuisines and sightseeing. This is certainly not the only activity you can participate in on the Caribbean resorts. There are opportunities to take part in thrill seeking water sports to make your trip interesting.

For those who have never experienced this type of activity will need to seek out good quality instructors who are accredited to teach. These sports include scuba diving, windsurfing, kayaking, water skiing, sailing, snorkelling and of course swimming in the breathtakingly beautiful Caribbean Sea. Each exercise are very different from each other, but if you have never experienced this then it is probably good to talk to someone first, especially if you are looking to scuba dive.

A good way to find out what the experience is like would be to read up on each sport and research what other people had felt from taking part in water sports. Scuba diving is not for people afraid of swimming under water. This is a sport that requires teaching and guidance, which are available at an affordable rate. Some of the most popular spots on the Caribbean resorts are the Cayman Islands, Curacao and the Virgin Islands.

Divers can also experience Stingray City, off the Cayman Islands, whereby people are swimming alongside dozens of tame stingrays. However, for those searching for a bit of excitement and 'hanging ten' can also enjoy surfing the waves, windsurfing or kite boarding. These are all popular in the Caribbean and boards are always available for hire. Kite boarding is a relatively new sport that has developed a large number of avid participators.

Snorkelling is another sport that can be enjoyed by every one of all ages and has been a popular activity for many years. This is a great way to get closer to the underwater life, coming face to face with exotic fishes and witness the colourful sponges and corals. There are also instruction offered from most hotels, with the added bonus of containing equipments needed for the diving.

Along with the fantastic swimming opportunities, one can also be involved with water skiing, which for some is the most exciting part of water sports. Individuals can also hire out jet skis for the independent experience of riding the waves. Operators tend to be readily available nearby the beaches and at hotels.

In conclusion, when considering a holiday in the Caribbean, perhaps the above sports may tickle your fancy for a different kind of adventure. Holidays are about relaxing, but also about experiencing something new and building upon good memories.
