Getting Around - In Style

A trip to the Caribbean can take some preparation, but what about once you’re there? If you plan it right, you can have an adventure-packed vacation, bouncing among various islets in the region or short-distance traveling throughout the island you landed on.

Of course, there are plenty of ways to travel once you’ve arrived but why not travel in style? Discover some of the best ways to get around and sightsee with these over-the-top and highly convenient recommendations!

By Luxury Car Service

Some like it hot but when you’re not from the islands, it’s likely you’ll crave air-conditioned transport. Cruise the Havana streets in a chauffeured Gran Car, a classic vintage Chevy, Ford, or other American car from the 1950s. These stylish beauties feature well-maintained leather seats, air conditioning, and friendly, professional service.

Premium transportation service is nothing new to the Caribbean. Countless destinations offer luxury vehicles with personalized amenities for a unique experience. Spacious and most often equipped with Wi-Fi, surround sound, on-screen entertainment, independent-controlled air, and knowledgeable guides, you can’t go wrong with a luxury car or SUV excursion taking in one breathtaking view after the next. For events and large groups, many Caribbean islands also offer hummer limousines and party bus transportation options. So, whether you’re on a Punta Cana honeymoon or cruising to find the best beach in Antigua, some of the most memorable island experiences start with a scenic trip in a luxury car.

By Air

Island hopping is one of the best ways to see the vast beauty of the Caribbean. While you’ll find a sun-kissed warm blue waterscape wherever you go here, each island has its own unique history, culture, and even distinct ecosystems. Traveling between islands can be surprisingly difficult in some parts of the region but not if you’re landing in the Bahamas. Tagging on a flight to any Bahamas tour is a lavish way to explore more. With various islets, each with its own distinct character, the Bahamas island chain is a popular destination for intra-island flights for the ultimate Bahamas sightseeing experience. Flying between these islands is made simple with scheduled and chartered air service that is available through certified domestic and international carriers.

With this travel option, you’ll be in for more bespoke experiences and can visit off-the-beaten-path, smaller islands that are only accessed by plane from other Caribbean destinations. If there is availability, you can opt for a giant Airbus flight or something as small as a nine-seater. Just keep in mind, it’s best to plan any travel by air well in advance.

By E-bike or Segway

From Antigua, St. Lucia, and Barbados to the Bahamas and more, touring in style just keeps getting more and more innovative. Some islands offer excursions that allow you to take in the beautiful sights and sounds while cruising through a charming town or on an off-the-beaten-path adventure while on your electric bike cruiser. Or glide along a beautiful beach or journey to historical landmarks on your own personal Segway.

From bike tours in Curacao to a waterfront Nassau excursion by Segway, all e-bike and Segway tours throughout the Caribbean generally include the vehicle, equipment, a knowledgeable guide, and sometimes even a traditional delicious Caribbean lunch!

By Bus

If private charters and multiple island-hop flights just aren’t in the budget, you can still travel in comfort and style. When you think of a bus, you probably don’t associate it with luxury or comfort, but such transport does exist. Jamaica’s Knutsford Express, for example, is a comfortable and cost-effective service with scheduled transportation from convenient locations on Jamaica's north and south coasts including connections to Portland, St. Mary, and Negril. Jamaica bus tours too, are a great way to see the island and are offered to allow you to quickly and conveniently parish-hop throughout the island.

By Private Boat Charter

Various Caribbean islands provide the ideal waterscape for traveling via private charter. Find a locale with excellent trade winds, crystal-clear blue water, and complex coral reef systems and the rest will take care of itself. Whichever location you decide on, your all-inclusive charter — most often including a captain, chef, host, and crew, plus up to three meals and snacks each day — is the ultimate experience when it comes to getting around in style. You’ll find a number of exciting things to do while docked too.

Chartering a boat or yacht always includes stops at the local marina with cafes, bars, shops, and restaurants. On your stop, venture out further into the city to enjoy the area hiking spots and adventure tours. Seek out beautiful beaches for water sports like kayaking, snorkeling, stand-up paddleboarding, and scuba-diving amid the offshore reefs. The most convenient way to plan for this level of comfort and style is to work with a travel advisor or agent. Turks and Caicos boating adventures, cruises from St. Lucia, over-the-water Exuma excursions, and more await!

By Ferry

If you’d rather see various islands without splurging on a private yacht, traveling by ferry is an ideal way to get around in the islands. You can enjoy the breeze, the Caribbean sun, and panoramic view of the water. Ferries can make hopping from island to island relatively convenient. A ferry from St. Maarten to Anguilla, for example, is only a 25-minute ride!

There are several Caribbean destinations that offer opportunities for multi-island vacations with domestic ferry links, like routes from Trinidad to Tobago, Grenada to Carriacou, St. Vincent to the Grenadines, and within the Bahamas archipelago. Plus, you can opt for international island trips to the islands of Dominica, Guadeloupe, Martinique, St. Lucia, and more. You’re sure to meet lots of folks too—a mix of day trippers, business commuters, yacht renters, and sightseeing couples and families. One thing to keep in mind: you might need your passport so don’t leave your room (or villa) without it if you have a day of island hopping via ferry planned!
