Divided into what’s commonly known as the Greater and Lesser Antilles, the Caribbean has emerged from its roots as the West Indies to become a region known for its cultural and environmental diversity. From sprawling islands like Saint Maarten full of beachfront Caribbean real estate and large scale entertainment and dining to smaller islands like Saba recognized for its scuba diving and some of the most captivating natural sights, each island within the Caribbean has developed its own individual personality.
Interestingly, there was once a time when the Caribbean was more of a relatively remote region favored and frequented largely by seafarers and scientific beachcombers than the tropical destination epicenter of the world distinction it has earned. The Caribbean’s existing tourism and vacation appeal has consistently made the region a perennial favorite with all ages. Young individuals come to explore the abundant nightlife and entertainment, the working classes visit the unspoiled white sand beaches to get away from the daily grind and retirees come to find a private home or villa in which to spend their golden years while surrounded by the tranquil Caribbean Sea.
Today islands like the Bahamas and Jamaica are recognized globally as some of the best places to plan a vacation and discover cultures that still practice and hold onto the foundations that define Caribbean culture. Festivals like the annually held Carnival are a brilliant display of food, traditional costumes, elaborate parades and the music of the Caribbean including calypso, mambo, reggae, and salsa.
The lively atmosphere, abundant culture, natural backdrops and the “something for everyone” approach contributes greatly to the Caribbean real estate appeal. A hugely diverse collection of properties from small Caribbean island real estate cottages and apartments to large mansions, waterfront villas and all inclusive Caribbean condos offer a great selection of property for anyone seeking Caribbean rental property, vacation rentals or even a permanent Caribbean home. Locations can range anywhere from a home opening right onto the beach as the backyard to a cozy sanctuary tucked deep within the tropical forests completely detached from the city.
