The benefits of travelling to the Caribbean are plain to see. Its inviting weather and warm tropical sea has lured visitors from all over the world since the late 18th century. Tourism is an important economic activity in most of the Caribbean countries. It is, in fact, the main source of income in the US Virgin Islands, the Bahamas, and Antigua and Barbuda. As far as Caribbean hotels go, travellers find five-star luxury hotels, but also less exclusive, more affordable options. All-inclusive resorts are tremendously popular among Caribbean hotels, but some prefer locally-owned establishments.
Some of the best among Caribbean hotels are found in the Bahamas. A popular cruise destination, it is one of the wealthiest nations in the Caribbean, and the tourism sector employs over half of the country's workforce. Another beautiful island, known for having some of the most alluring Caribbean hotels, is Jamaica - all-inclusive resorts abound along its coasts. Cuba is also a very popular destination. In Havana, the Cuban capital, visitors may choose to stay in small, locally-owned hotels, rather than big international chains, mainly for their quaint, picturesque feel.
