Goodbye, boring Caribbean resort vacations! A new generation of travelers is looking for something different from their warm-weather getaways, ditching overcrowded beaches and packed resorts for a unique travel experience.
As Skift reports that up to 70% of Gen Z and Millennial travelers are looking for off-the-beaten-path travel experiences, ones their family and friends might not have heard of or considered, it's time for new Caribbean destinations to shine.
The colorful southern Caribbean island of Curaçao is more than just trending; it's a bonafide new Caribbean hotspot. A crop of new and recently-refurbished hotels and resorts await first-time visitors and returnees to this Caribbean destination. Curaçao has so much to love.
Beach bars and local restaurants with delicious Caribbean food await, with peaceful, uncrowded streets and lush jungles just beyond. World-class resorts like Jungle Bay are hidden on the hillside, waiting to welcome new and returning visitors.
Long a favorite with backpackers passing between Panama and Colombia, the San Blas Islands can be a bit challenging to get to even though they are close to the coast. It is a contributing factor to their untouched, local feel.
