Delta Guide 2013

Freeport, The Bahamas

Unlike New Providence Island, long and skinny Grand Bahama Island, with a western tip that curves and an eastern tip that curves south and ends in a string of cays, boasts great expanses of pristine nature and undeveloped beaches.

Nassau, The Bahamas

Just 75 miles from Palm Beach, New Providence Island is home to capital city Nassau, a magnet for cruise ship passengers and other visitors who want to eat well and shop even better.

Bermuda

More than 600 miles north of the tropics, Bermuda is not where you go for guaranteed hot weather in January, but it more than makes up for that in so many ways.

Bonaire

Bonaire is to diving as Colorado is to skiing, which is to say, there’s plenty to enjoy if you don’t dive, but if you do dive, it’s on your bucket list—and after you’ve crossed it off the list, it goes right back on again.

Grand Cayman

Grand Cayman is one of the most prosperous islands in the region, thanks to its banking and other industries, but as with Bonaire, it’s the lure of world-class diving that attracts many of its visitors.

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Where to begin? Barcelo, Dreams, Iberostar, Paradisus, Secrets, Zoëtry and Hard Rock all have resorts here, in Punta Cana, as do many independents.

Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic

This, the second-largest city in the Dominican Republic, is an inland metropolis that, instead of offering beaches and golf, welcomes business travelers and other visitors to an untouristed destination with urban nightlife and culture.

Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

This city has some of the most stunning sights in the Western Hemisphere, because this was where the Columbus family settled down and the Spanish crown established an empire.

Grenada

Nobody ever accused Grenada of being a big island, but within its 100 sq. miles it manages to offer visitors both the bucolic scenery and quietude of the old Caribbean and the luxuries of the new.

Port-au-Prince

Most people know that Haiti was an unstable country in the last days of the Duvalier regime and for a decade or so after it fell.
