Tips for enjoying Caribbean’s natural treasures

There’s more to the Caribbean than lazing on beaches
There’s much more to the Caribbean than lazing on beaches with a rum punch, TTG Digital writes. There are natural wonders that travel agency clients will have to see to believe.
The Bahamas isn’t short on coastline, but arguably there is no more striking a spot than Glass Window Bridge on Eleuthera Island. A sliver of road stretches over the water, joining the northern and southern parts of the island and providing a panoramic view with the choppy water of the Atlantic on one side and the tranquil aquamarine Caribbean on the other.
“Take an early morning flight from Nassau, then a taxi tour,” recommends Anthony Stuart, director for UK & Europe at the Bahamas Tourist Office. “The Queen’s Highway runs the length of Eleuthera. Pull off the road just past Glass Window Bridge to pause and marvel at this narrow stretch. Then take in some history at Preacher’s Cave and the Queen’s Baths and visit one of the pink-sand beaches before heading to North Eleuthera for the flight back to Nassau.”
The article also suggests taking the electric tram that descends into the vast limestone caverns and tunnels of Harrison’s Cave in Barbados; scuba diving in the Great Blue Hole, Belize; experiencing the world’s only “drive-in volcano” at Sulphur Springs, St Lucia; climbing the terraced limestone cascades at Dunn’s River Falls, Jamaica; walking in the pine forests of Parc National la Visite, Haiti; diving and swimming in the hidden lagoon and underwater tunnels of Laguna Dudu, Dominican Republic; and discovering the wild beaches lined with tall palms and thick emerald-green rainforest in the Tayrona National Natural Park, Colombia’s best-kept secret.
