The Dominican Republic is more than just a beach destination. This beautiful country also offers dramatic, lush green landscapes with mangroves, lagoons and waterfalls. It also boasts excellent scuba diving. Jamaica is famously one of the most laid back islands in the Caribbean, where days beg to be spent languidly relaxing at the beach with a rum cocktail in hand. Head inland, and you’ll find tropical forests with cascading waterfalls.
Those looking for both relaxation and adventure should head to Antigua, where both exquisite beaches and a range of water sports are waiting. Alternatively, head to Mexico to explore the fascinating ruins of the ancient Mayan civilisation at Chichen Itza or discover the second largest coral reef in the world. Mexico is perfect for families, too, boasting a range of activities such as zip lining, river tubing and snorkelling.
Luxury holidays in the Caribbean and Mexico are perfect for those looking to enjoy a relaxing, sun soaked retreat. This part of the world won’t disappoint; treating you to upmarket shopping, luxurious hotels, chic bars and, of course, world class beaches. The Caribbean and Mexico are peppered with luxury hotels, but Sovereign has found the best of the bunch. Head to the east coast of the Dominican Republic to stay at Excellence El Carmen, a great choice for an adults only holiday with a huge selection of restaurants to indulge in. The elegant, boutique Galley Bay Resort and Spa is located on a stunning beach in Antigua, surrounded by tropical gardens and boasting sensational views over the lagoon.
St Lucia boasts some of the most dramatic scenery in the Caribbean – rainforest-cloaked volcanoes, thundering waterfalls, hot springs and bubbling mud pools. Its most famous mountains are the Pitons: verdant twin peaks that have starred in hundreds of travel brochures and guidebook.
Mexico is a mammoth country with two coastlines. We focus on the Caribbean coast, where the Yucatan Peninsula serves up everything from glitzy beach resorts to mystical Mayan pyramids.
