Get Your Adrenaline Pumping: Eight Thrilling Caribbean Adventures

Many vacationers travel to the Caribbean strictly to relax – to sink their toes into the creamy, white sand, soak up the sun and sip a cocktail (or two). Sounds heavenly, right? But if you’re craving a little more adventure during your island getaway, you’re in luck, because many memorable excursions are waiting for you in the Caribbean. Blow off some steam during your vacation with one of these exciting activities!

1.Ziplining: It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s…you! Buzz your way through the treetops on an unforgettable zipline outdoor adventure tour and experience breathtaking bird’s-eye views of exotic flora and fauna.

2.Volcano Excursions: Fancy yourself a daredevil? Prove it! Explore the depths of an active Caribbean volcano – it’s much more thrilling than another trip to the sauna.

3.Deep Sea Fishing: Snorkeling may be enough fun for an amateur, but advanced adventure seekers like you, may be far more interested in navigating the rolling waves and catching fish big enough to hang over your fireplace with pride. A deep sea fishing excursion will give you memories for a lifetime – and may even be tonight’s dinner!

4.Off-Road Safaris: Ditch the beautiful white sand for something a little rougher. Travel by dune buggy, ATV or four wheeler through exotic Caribbean jungles seldom seen by beach-bumming tourists.

5.Kayaking: Become one with paradise as you swiftly paddle through the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. It’s a great opportunity for sightseeing and toning those arm muscles!

6.Swim with the Stingrays: Dolphins are docile – swim with the stingrays, instead! Get up close and personal with these majestic creatures for an experience that is definitely worth bragging about.

7.Beach Horseback Riding: It may sound like the cover of a cheesy romance novel, but few tropical island tours are as thrilling and remarkable as riding along the surf on horseback. Just make sure you can keep up with Fabio while you survey the beautiful landscape.

8.SCUBA Diving: They say there are plenty of fish in the sea…so get out there and meet some! Exploring the ocean depths in a (super awesome, but perhaps not very flattering) SCUBA suit is one of the most popular activities in the islands – and with good reason. The Caribbean features an abundance of colorful fish and award-winning reefs.

There you have it – eight unforgettable Caribbean adventures to get your adrenaline pumping (that is, when you’re not already doing so on the dance floor). Once you’ve had your fill of spa treatments, sunbathing and the occasional mojito, embark on one of these exciting excursions to make your next trip to the exotic islands even more memorable!
