One of the largest islands in the Eastern Caribbean, Puerto Rico combines glitzy resorts with a bustling business and nightlife with quiet beaches and a massive, untouched rainforest. No visit to the island would be complete without a trip to the Bacardi Rum Distillery (and the chance to sample the product). Other must sees include the El Yunque Rainforest. Stunningly beautiful, it offers natural swimming pools, waterfalls and lush, green fauna.

Stroll through Blackbeard's 17th century castle and colonial estates housing three manor houses. See the rum factory, and the amazing Amber Museum with its beautiful amber waterfall. Take a schooner to Christmas and Turtle Cove for an opportunity to snorkel before heading to Honeymoon Beach for idyllic relaxation.
Day 6 Samana (Dominican Republic) Arrive at 09:00 Depart at 16:00
A step removed from the well-trodden tourist trail, this Caribbean island feels like new territory, yet to be discovered; a sense that is enhanced by its crystal clear waters, where in some well hidden diving spots, you can see up to 150ft. Explore inland on a 4X4 safari adventure which will take you along unpaved roads to local farms and deserted beaches. Highlights of the Samana Peninsula include the imported 19th century English church, La Churcha, the Whale Museum and the sleepy fishing village of Las Terrenas.
Day 7 Labadee (Haiti) Arrive at 08:00 Depart at 16:00
