Delta Guide 2012

Freeport, Bahamas

Though visitors fly into the small town of Freeport, the most prominent part of Grand Bahama Island is the Grand Lucayan resort.

Exuma, Bahamas

The Exuma Islands of The Bahamas epitomize the “deserted island” ideal. A string of cays and islands—365 in total, one for every day of the year—they’re known for their beautiful beaches and the breezy attitude of their locals.

Bermuda

Posh is the word for this island set north of the Caribbean, closer to the coast of North Carolina than to its island neighbors to the south. You’ll feel the English influence strongly here, especially in its capital city of Hamilton, home to a wealth of 19th century buildings built by colonists from England.

Bonaire

This quiet island in the southern Caribbean is famous for exactly one thing, diving. If you’re a diver, this is your holy grail—an island in the middle of a diverse underwater ecosystem, giving deep-sea explorers the chance to encounter more fish, plants and animals than anyplace else in the islands.

George Town, Cayman Islands

Grand Cayman’s most popular tourist attractions rank among the best-known in the Caribbean.

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Several decades ago, Punta Cana played host to an explosion of large-scale resorts—many of them all-inclusive—so today, the region is largely defined by its tourism industry.

Santiago, Dominican Republic

The city of Santiago doesn’t get the number of tourists you’ll find in Punta Cana or Santo Domingo, a blessing for the travelers who do visit this second largest city in the Dominican Republic.

Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

The capital of the Dominican Republic blends old and new unlike anyplace else on earth. This is the birthplace of European colonialism in the Western Hemisphere, with a wealth of historic sites that rank among the oldest of their kind in the new world.

Grenada

They call it the Spice Island for a reason, mainly because this island measuring a little over 100 sq. miles, is one of the world’s leading exporters of nutmeg.

Port-au-Prince, Haiti

Haiti’s rich Creole culture has long been overshadowed by natural disaster, most recently an earthquake in January of 2010 that destroyed much of the gateway city of Port-au-Prince.
