Originally a fort built by the U.S. Army in 1838, during the Second Seminole War, Ft. Lauderdale has little left of its warlike past. Instead the city welcomes visitors with broad beaches and an easy pace of life, plus convenient air and water connections that make the city a perfect place to visit.

Exuma's cays form one of the prettiest and most hospitable Bahamian chains. Bright white sand of deserted beaches contrast the deep aquamarine and jade hues of the water. Lord Rolle imported the first cottonseeds in late 18th century and had more than 300 slaves working on Great Exuma - who adopted their master's surname. When cotton was a financial failure for him and emancipation loomed, Lord John Rolle deeded 2,300 acres of land given to him by the British Government to his foremen slaves. This land has been passed on to each new generation and can never be sold to outsiders. Today almost half the residents go by the name Rolle; one of the largest settlements is named Rolleville. George Town is home to Government Administration Building, a pink and white building modeled after Government House in Nassau. St. Andrew's Anglican Church is a beautiful 150-year old white building with blue doors and shutters and an active place of worship today. Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park is a natural preserve for brilliant coral reefs and exotic marine life.

Some say movie star Errol Flynn was the first to float down the Rio Grande River on a raft. In this part of Jamaica, it's still a good way to spend a few idyllic hours.
Cayman Brac is the middle sister of the three Cayman Islands. It is a coral island surrounded by reef with a population of about 1200 residents. It has changed little since it was discovered in 1503 by Christopher Columbus. Despite its history of pirate adventure and hidden treasure, it remains a peaceful quiet hideaway not only for divers and snorkelers, but also for sports fishermen, bird watchers, rock climbers, and those who just want to relax. The Brac retains the distinct charm of the Caribbean of many years ago. Gingerbread details on pastel colored houses are creations of local carpenters trained as woodcraft artists for shipbuilding. The quiet of the streets is broken only by friendly greetings and welcomes for visiting tourists. On the bluff, cattle are tended and locals utilize the land for vegetable crops. Hikers will find unlimited areas to explore. The natural vegetation of the island includes many tropical plants and fruit trees - mango and papaya - as well as beautiful wild orchids.

Providencia, is one of a group of islands in the Caribbean, to the north of the coast of Panama but belonging to Colombia. It is the second largest island of the group and is volcanic island and much older than San Andrés, the largest island. The highest peak is El Pico, which is well worth a walk. Providencia is rapidly becoming a fashionable spot for Colombian tourists. Aguadulce on the western coast has already been converted into a tourist centre with hotels, restaurants, boat and snorkelling gear rental. However, the rest of the island has remained virtually unspoiled. The coral reefs around Providencia are extensive and provide for good snorkeling and diving. There is much fine Caribbean English-style architecture and the locals are very friendly.
San Andres is located to the northeast of Colombia's Caribbean coast and has beautiful beaches characterized by white sand, red corals, and transparent water with seven different shades of blue, and for this reason it is known as the "Sea of Seven Colors." Its vegetation consists mainly of coconut trees. The San Andres Island and Providence Archipelago were discovered in 1510 by Spanish navigators while traveling from Jamaica to Miskitos. It was settled by the English and Dutch and later ceded to the Spanish government, giving rise to its Spanish heritage, however today, most of the island's inhabitants speak "Bende" or Caribbean English.
Suggested Private Excursion
Puerto Límon, on a palm-fringed shore backed by mountains, is the country's most important port. It was built on the site of an ancient Indian village, Cariari, where Columbus landed on his fourth and last voyage. Though he felt this was potentially a very rich land and named it Costa Rica, it never quite lived up to his expectations. However the spot where he anchored has proved to be the best port of the Caribbean coast. It was from here that the first shipments of bananas headed to North America in the late 19th century.
Suggested Private Excursions
In the islands of Bocas you know you are on vacation the moment you arrive. You have an inmediate sense of unspoiled and unpolluted nature. The islands offer a great diversity of attractions and natural environments, uncommon to other regions of the continent: luxurious rain forests with an abundance of fauna and flora, sunny islands, beaches that compete with the Caribbean best, coral reefs in crystal clear water, mangrove islets in a lake-like scenery, guaymi indian villages and a national marine park that protects examples of the ecosystems and natural resources coexisting within the Archipelago boundaries, as a tribute to our future generations.
There’s more to Panama than the canal. Panama’s ethnic mix is reflected in its arts. This is a proud nation that honors its many Indian tribes and its rich Spanish legacy. And with some of the finest deep-sea fishing, snorkeling and birding, once you embrace Panama, you’ll find it hard to leave.
