Describe the perfect day in your destination?
Within the Caribbean, the perfect day begins with a sunrise by the ocean and taking that fresh sea breeze followed by an easy going fresh fruit breakfast. From there let's actually head onto the water and spend the day cruising the coast on a catamaran where you can swim with the sea life and snorkel among some reefs and wrecks. After your cruise a short nap is order and then it's time for cocktail sundowners as we take in the rich colors of a Caribbean sunset followed by rum inspired dinner.

What local cuisine would you recommend to people staying in your destination?
Within the Caribbean, each destination has a national dish and this a must to try whilst you are on island. In Barbados the national dish is Cou cou, served with flying fish. Somewhat similar to polenta or grits, Cou-cou is made with corn meal and okra. The signature meal you should have in Saint Lucia is green figs and salt fish where you enjoy boiled unripe bananas and salt-cured boiled or flaked cod. It's a hearty dish made with various herbs and spices. In Antigua, the national dish is Fungee (a dish similar to Italian Polenta like Cou Cou, made mostly with cornmeal) and Pepperpot (a flavourful and hearty stew of meat and vegetables containsing spinach, okra, eggplant, squash, peas, dumplings and meats such as salted pork, beef and chicken. While in Grenada, Oildown is the national dish. This savory one-pot meal is usually prepared once a week or during anniversary of Independence celebrations across the island. The most essential ingredients are coconut milk, turmeric, breadfruit, and callaloo and you can add any meat, seafood or just stick with vegetables.
