Many people who have traveled to the Caribbean would tell you that the biggest factor determining how much it will cost is which island you choose to visit. The Caribbean has so many options, from Mustique, the private island retreat famous for being the beach holiday of Mick Jagger and famous movie stars, to less expensive Trinidad and Tobago, which offer the same amazing beaches for a fraction of the cost of the more upscale islands.
Trinidad Tobago are a natural paradise…if you love eco-tours check out these new tours:
