America's Tropical Playground
Escape, Island Style
Leave the every day behind with a flight to St. Somewhere, a realm of emerald-green islands that rise from turquoise seas. Some travelers come simply to walk powder-sand beaches, catch some rays and decompress. But there's much more to these islands than lounge chairs and run drinks. Colorful coral reefs beckon snorkelers and divers; skippers stand ready to hoist sail for out islands or ply blue waters for trophy gamefish. Coastlines await exploration by paddlers, while trails through rainforest slopes lead to hidden waterfalls and mountaintop vistas. Upscale resorts offer fine dining and pampering spa services, but equally enjoyable are lively village markets and local beachfront eateries.
