Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Fly UK to Miami

After relaxing in the included airport lounge, fly to Miami, arriving the same day. Take your included private transfer to your hotel for a 2 night stay on a room only basis.

Stay: Hyatt Regency, Pier 66

Day 2
Miami

It has the largest city population in Florida, is the third most visited American city among international travelers and showcases an Art Deco Historic District encompassing one of the largest neighborhoods entered on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. Miami certainly boasts its share of impressive characteristics, even before adding to the list its gorgeous beaches, spirited Cuban population and ritzy enclaves of Coral Gables and Coconut Grove. Miami wasn't always the glamorous and energetic city you see today. Until the late 1800s, it was mostly swamp, disconnected from the rest of the country thanks to its position on the edge of the continent and lack of the essential link of the day: a railroad. All that changed in 1896, when the railroad in northern Florida was extended to the latent tropical paradise of the south. The rest, as they say, is history, as Miami has since seen recurrent booms fueled by surges of immigration, perennially good weather and an insouciant refusal to do anything halfway. Admire the full glory of Miami Beach with a stroll along South Beach's famous Ocean Boulevard, where splendidly restored art deco buildings compete with fashion models and sun worshipers for attention. For a taste of Cuban cuisine and culture, visit Little Havana on the mainland (Miami Beach is separate both in its municipality and its geography: it sits on a barrier island four miles off the coast, and is reached by a causeway). Also outside mainland Miami are the acres of rare tropical plants nurtured to their fragrant and beautiful best in Fairchild Tropical Gardens. The aforementioned slice of heaven known as Coral Gables lies to the southwest.

Stay: Hyatt Regency, Pier 66

Bonaire/Kralendijk, Netherlands. Antilles

The "B" of Netherlands Antilles' ABC islands (with Aruba and Curaçao), Bonaire is the easternmost of the three.

The charming beachside town of Kralendijk fits snugly into the leeward curve of the island. This capital of Bonaire features the ABC islands' signature pastel-colored buildings and old Dutch homes, reminders of the "home country." Sights include a colorful boat harbor and fish market, historical Fort Orange, the Old Fort museum, jewelry and duty-free shops, plus a pretty main square shaded by mimosa trees and surrounded by brightly colored flowers.

Day 10
Grenada, West Indies

The rich aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and other spices hovers over the fertile, volcanic hills of Grenada. Often called the Spice Island, Grenada has a lot more to offer then just spices. St. George's, the picturesque, small capital with terraces of pale, color-washed houses and cheerful red roofs, has long enjoyed the reputation of having the prettiest harbor in the Caribbean. Established in 1705 by French settlers, who called it Fort Royal, much of the town's present-day charm results from the blend of two colonial cultures, which are reflected in typical 18th-century French provincial houses and fine examples of English Georgian architecture. The mountainous interior rises from a generally rugged coast, which in part is blessed with dazzling white beaches. As the trade winds rustle palms on idyllic beaches, they carry hints of spice- nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and vanilla that entice you to discover the Spice Island.

Day 11
Barbados/Bridgetown, West Indies

Barbados offers sun-drenched beaches, clear blue-green waters and cool trade winds. Inland are lovingly preserved plantation houses, lush sugar cane fields and fragrant gardens. This charming former British colony is one of the most stable independent Caribbean nations. Reminders of British rule abound, from cricket fields to Lord Nelson's statue and the original Trafalgar Square. Don't miss Bridgetown's bustling Careenage and the shops on Broad Street, which offer exceptional deals on luxury imports from Britain.

Day 12
Guadeloupe/Pointe-a-Pitre, West Indies

Shaped like a butterfly with two wing-shaped islands connected by a narrow channel, Guadeloupe alights in the hearts of travelers as a favorite tropical escape, brimming with natural wonders and touched with French panache. Grande-Terre, the left of the two “wings,— draws visitors with its white-sand beaches and main town with outdoor cafes, colorful marketplaces and boutiques proffering European imports that would make it look right at home in France. The mountainous right “wing— of Guadeloupe, Basse-Terre, is more rugged, with a 4,813-foot volcano at its center and vast national park with 74,000 acres of thick rainforest to explore. A taste of the isles’ Caribbean culture can be savored with a tumbler of Guadeloupe’s famed rum or visit to an old colonial sugar mill.
