THE JUNGLE IS CALLING

CARIBBEAN RAINFOREST AND PARKS

Run through rainforests and wander with wildlife when you cruise to Caribbean Rainforest Destinations.

The Caribbean is a lush, mysterious land filled with rainforests and nature reserves of tropical beauty. Stop in Puerto Rico and head to El Yunque National Rainforest to trek along tree-lined, misty trails that lead to cascading waterfalls. If you're searching for serenity, swing by the Grand Etang National Park in Grenada, where peaceful greenery surrounds a shimmering lake. If animal adventures are more what you're looking for, visit the island of Dominica, where you can try to keep pace with quick-footed agoutis (think of a guinea pig, but cuter) or be on the lookout for agile hummingbirds in the protected lands of the nature reserves. Or stop in Costa Rica and venture into San Luis Park, where you can zip-line through the forest and capture its wild beauty from above. Discover the magic of nature with a Caribbean cruise.

BRANCH OUT AMONG TROPICAL TREES

Choose the best Caribbean Rainforest vacation and find yourself in awe of the beauty of waterfalls, jungle creatures, birdsong and refreshing forest air. Be sure to snap photos — there's no other place in the world where you'll find the coqui tree frog of Puerto Rico or the mysterious, dark-eyed oilbird of Trinidad.

IT'S RAINING TROPICS!

Known as the only tropical rainforest in the United States, El Yunque — less than an hour's drive from San Juan, in the eastern town of Fajardo, Puerto Rico — is home to La Mina waterfall, multiple trails and a visitor center. Take a self-tour with the provided trail maps or join a group tour to trek through the forest with companions. Either way, you'll be enchanted by the fresh smells, earthy sounds and refreshing waters of the splashing waterfalls during your vacation.

NO RESERVE-ATIONS REQUIRED

With a myriad of ecological subsystems all existing in harmony within the same compound, the Grand Etang Forest Reserve in Grenada is home to stunning mahogany and gommier trees. As you explore the indigenous flora surrounding the Grand Etang Lake, keep your eyes peeled for local beauties like soursop, a creamy-textured fruit with a distinctive spiked skin.

THE PEAK OF EXCITEMENT

Go on an vacation adventure in the Blue and John Crow Mountains National Park in Jamaica, a UNESCO World Heritage Site just a stone's throw away from Ocho Rios, where you can walk amongst endemic species of flora and fauna, explore historic maroon communities and indulge in what is arguably Jamaica's best coffee: Blue Mountain.

PARK AND PLAY

From zip-lining to bridge-crossing, travel adventures abound in some of the best national parks of the Caribbean. Take an expedition through the wonders of rainforests and reserves to witness waterfalls, blue holes, hiking trails and visitor centers. There is a wide selection of Caribbean islands offering outstanding hiking experiences.

GET READY TO COSTA-WAY

San Luis Park, the adventure park of Costa Rica — about a 90-minute drive from the port at Puntarenas — offers canopy tours, rappelling, river rafting, hiking trails, a butterfly farm and a tour called the Tarzan Swing. For family fun, raft through the rapids or howl along with the local monkeys.

DIVE INTO THE DEPTHS OF THE CARIBBEAN

One of nine national parks in the Dominican Republic, Parque Nacional del Este — a quick 50-minute drive from Punta Cana — hosts over 500 species of flowers and 300 species of birds. If you're looking for aquatic adventures, dive with dolphins or capture the beauty of the coral reefs in the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea right off the coast of the park.

THE WILD, THE WINGED AND THE WONDERFUL

Get to know wild creatures like the cute, beaver-like hutia that lives in the mangrove park of Los Haitises National Park, found in the Dominican Republic, about a two-hour drive from Punta Cana. On your adventure through this wonderland, which is home to the biggest population of native birds on the entire island, you're sure to fix your eyes on some fabulous flyers.

KEEPIN' IT TROPICAL
