Like much of this capital city, Faro a Colon, a bold and imposing cross-shaped structure, serves as a tribute to one of the world’s most famous explorers.

Columbus Lighthouse projects a unique cross-shaped beam with a light so bright it can be seen from the shores of Puerto Rico.

Travelers who venture to this concrete structure can explore a vast collection of Columbian jewelry, an ancient boat from Cuba and what locals say are the remains of Christopher Columbus.

Dark View Falls are two spectacular waterfalls in St Vincent, cascading down a sheer cliff face one above the other into natural pools below. The falls flow from a tributary of the Richmond River at the southern foot of La Soufrière volcano in the northwest of the island.

Ideal for children and those who enjoy nature but who don’t wish to complete long hikes, the short 15-minute walk from the main center to the falls is perfect. The path to the lower waterfall is both scenic and exhilarating, with a rickety bamboo bridge spanning the tumbling river leading to a pretty bamboo grove within the forest. A steeper trail then leads to the upper waterfall, where you’ll find a larger bathing pool to splash around in.

You can visit this attraction by booking a hiking tour to Dark View Falls, which includes the entrance fee and a professional guide. Don’t forget your swimwear if you’re planning to take a dip in the bathing pools.

The River Antoine Estate is home to the oldest rum distillery in Grenada, where the originaly owners began producing rum in 1785.

Visitors can learn about and witness the process of production, from the initial picking of the sugarcane plant, which is compressed by a water wheel and boiled, to the fermentation and distilling processes. The site's water wheel is actually the oldest in the whole of the Caribbean. Of course there are opportunities to sample and taste the famous finished product, which is completely organic.

River Antoine rum is made entirely from the sugarcane juice during Grenada’s dry season (January to May) and supplemented with molasses in the wet season (June to December). Two different strengths are produced here, one of which is illegal to bring on a plane home, as it contains more than 70 percent alcohol!

Finished in 1848, St. John's Anglican Cathedral (St. John the Divine), an impressive freestone structure, serves as a reminder of Antigua's European roots. Built in the neo-baroque style, the cathedral seems out of place on the Caribbean island, with its iron fence, stained-glass windows and two lofty towers with cupolas on top.

The 70-foot (21-meter) towers serve as distinctive landmarks of the island, as they are the first structures that people see when approaching Antigua by boat. While the view is impressive to some, the sight of the towers once struck fear into the hearts of slaves who were arriving, as it reminded them of the oppressive power of the British who ruled over Antigua.

Stop by the cathedral and see the famed bronze statues of the two St Johns: St John the Baptist and the St. John who the temple was named after. The stoic, European look of the cathedral is a unique departure from the relaxed ocean vibe of this Caribbean island.
