In so many ways, Bermuda stands alone. Geographically speaking, it’s by itself in the Atlantic, well to the north of the Caribbean islands it’s normally lumped in with.

  Belize might not be a large country, even by Central American standards, but there are so many layers it’s worth a deep dive — and not just into the Great Blue Hole, which none other than Jacques Cousteau declared one of the best SCUBA sites in the world.  The Maya thrived here, and there […]

In Horatio Nelson’s time, the safe harbors and protective reef that define Antigua’s 95 miles of coastline made for a great Caribbean base for the Royal Navy.
