All About the Caribbean

Caribbean FAQ Everything you need to know -- from cell phone service to time zones -- to plan for your Caribbean getaway.

Cell Phones in the Caribbean

US cellular phones work in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands; some carriers offer special plans and roaming agreements for other islands. For example, some T-Mobile phones come with global SIM cards that can be used internationally. If you have a world phone, you'll find service on most islands.

Packing List What should you pack--both for your kids and yourselves--for a few days in the Caribbean?

High Season vs. Low Season When should you travel to the Caribbean? The highest prices coincide with the best weather but school vacations coincide with good prices and (usually) good weather as well. Find out which part of the summer is best for planning an island vacation.

Caribbean Foods What are some traditional foods you can introduce your family to during your stay? What dishes will you find on local menus? And what can you do about young, restless diners during long Caribbean meals?

Languages What destinations speak a language other than English?
