Caribbean Islands for Senior Travel, Part 2

Jan 7th, 2011 | By James E Becker | Category: Senior Travel

Seems like there was just too much to describe the Caribbean on one travel blog  a couple of weeks ago, so I added #2 with additional information. Still have questions?

Caribbean Island Vacations can help. Unlike most secure online booking sites, they answer travelers questions prior to booking, or after booking. They have traveled extensively throughout the Caribbean islands, and are quite familiar with island culture, things to do, where to stay, along with many other travel tips and information to make your next Caribbean island vacation enjoyable.
