Two weeks ago I took a week off to spend some family time in the Caribbean. In preparation for the trip I binge watched Black Sails to set the mood. Unfortunately, the islands have changed quite a bit since the early 16th century. However, they're equally as beautiful and much more enjoyable now.
I stayed at the Ritz-Carlton for most of my stay. Most time was spent by the pool or beach drinking rum from sunrise to sunset, but we also explored the island a bit and took a cruise over to St. John for a day.
Given its primarily a tourist destination these days, the local cuisine was mediocre to say the best. My favorite meal would've been from a small surf bar on St. John where they served fresh poke.
Needless to say it was a fantastic week with family, lots of sunshine, and I almost got a tan. If you're planning a trip anytime soon feel free to drop me a message and I'll be happy to help!
