Aside from stunning beaches and laid back culture, the brilliant colors of the Caribbean and Central America are what keep me coming back. Guatemala and Nicaragua have their colonial cities, islands like Tobago have their stunning blue waters and bright colored flowers.
St John, one of the US Virgin Islands, has quickly become my favorite island in the Western Hemisphere. I love that most of the island is a national park, which means completely natural undeveloped beaches, hiking trails, and very few hotels.
On my most recent trip, I decided to check out the main port town, Cruz Bay. Normally I stay as far away as possible from tourist centers, but since this island is quickly become a place I may return to over and over, I had to see what Cruz Bay is all about.
What did I find? Colors. Brilliant Colors – reminiscent of San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua but with a reggae-inspired edge.
