Posted on: August 15th, 2014 by Quik Shade

The Caribbean Sea offers some of the best Island resorts in the world. The beautiful, sparkling ocean offers incredible diving and snorkeling opportunities, while the resorts provide luxurious locations to relax and unwind while on vacation. The islands in the Caribbean include Jamaica, the British Virgin Islands, Grand Cayman, Aruba, Antigua, St. Lucia, Puerto Rico, Anguilla, St. John, Virgin Gorda, Dominica, St. Martin, the Dominican Republic, the Grenadines, and St. Thomas.

Many travelers list the Caribbean as one of their top destinations, and you do not have to settle for just cruising through the islands. Instead, you can stay at one of these five resorts, which offer the best locations to relax and enjoy the beautiful vistas.
