Waterfalls, Salsa, Pub-Crawls and Dog Sledding: Top Picks for Island Touring


The Garden of Eden
Venture into the heart of Dominica, "The Nature Island of the Caribbean." Ken’s Hinterland Adventures will take you deep into Dominica’s lush rainforest to pools of crystal water and natural mineral baths where you can soak your cares away and frolic under cascading waterfalls. On Ken’s To Ti Tour you scramble over boulders, hiking up a forgotten river and swimming through steep canyon walls to a freshwater waterfall hidden inside the gorge. Ken’s offers tours for travelers of various fitness levels from several hours to several days long.

Salsa in the Sand
If a week of white sand beaches and Salsa dancing day and night sounds like a dream come true, consider Tambó Cuba's Salsa at the Beach tour. Classes for every level dancer from aspiring to expert are provided by Cuba’s most recognized artists. The tour combines one class a day with coached practice, and relaxing and exploring the island solo or with Tambó. In the evening, the Cuban clubs pulse with island rhythms and provide an excellent opportunity to put the day’s lessons to use. If dancing isn't enough, stay an extra week for Afrocuban Folkloric Dance and Drum. Dates for the dancing are March 26-April 2.
