Caribbean Festivals & Events – A Great Way to Explore

Posted by on / 0 Comments

Local Festivals & Events are wonderful ways to experience a destination and get to know the people.  There are a multitude of festivals to explore from coffee and rum to any number of other unique and specials occasions.  Some of my fondest memories of traveling to a destination is when I get to interact with people and their culture, learning, understanding, and becoming friends.

I encourage everyone to research what festivals might be occurring in your destination the next time that you travel.  You won’t be sorry.

Here is a short list of upcoming festivals in the Caribbean through the end of 2014.
