2. Exploring the Rainforest

Is there anything more relaxing than connecting with nature? Are you drawn to the silence of nature? Then you should explore 'El Yunque', a tropical rainforest near 'Puerto Rico'. Hearing nature's melody through a waterfall in the middle of a forest may relieve your stress. Walking through the mountain trails and exploring the different species of plants and animals may give a different perspective while traveling. The tranquil beauty of the forest and the visuals of Mother Nature at its best make this location a must visit at least once in your lifetime.

3. Take a Ride through Submarine

The name itself is so thrilling, right? On St. Martin Island, you may find several adventurous options. But, if you truly want to do something extremely unique, then you should try a submarine trip to explore the wild beauty of the ocean. It is one of the best ways to explore the Eastern Caribbean.

4. Explore the Eco-Tourism

No complete guide to the Eastern Caribbean can end without talking about eco-tourism. Embark on an eco-tour to St. Marteen Island, and discover the true beauty of nature. The eco-friendly homestays and the mountain trails are surrounded by wild forests and at every turn, you may get to satisfy your wanderlust. If you ask for a more adventurous experience, then choose the zip line over the wild forest. No complete guide to the Eastern Caribbean can end without talking about eco-tourism.

5. Activities Around the Sea

Are you fond of singing and dancing? Then on the great bay beach, you can show off your salsa moves. Phillipsburg or Willemstad in Curacao, or Barbados, are likely to have some music festivals. Sounds exciting, right? So, explore the Eastern Caribbean with some beats, rhythms, and melodies.

6. Explore the Caribbean Delicacies

Food always play a vital role in your cruise travel plans. Why not? On each island of the East Caribbean, you may find some signature cuisines.
