“Caribbean reality resembles the wildest imagination” wrote Gabriel Garcia Marquez. How could anybody not want to experience such a place? Strings and strings of palm fringed islands are scattered amongst the iridescent sea and white sands glitter against the azure sky. Names like the Grenadines, St Kitts, Mustique, Turks and Caicos and Barbados conjure up images of exotic beauty that exert an inescapable lure. St Lucian born poet Derek Walcott wrote “I consider the sound of the sea to be part of my body”. Everyone should grasp the chance experience that.
