TAPESTRY OF BRAZIL & THE CARIBBEAN

An overnight stay in the iconic Rio de Janeiro gives you time to explore all the main highlights, like Sugar Loaf Mountain, the Christ the Redeemer Statue, the beach of Ipanema, Copacabana and much more. Staying overnight in Belém, you have time to traverse every corner of “The City of Mango Trees.” Explore its cultural center filled with art galleries, museums, and historic sites, or find your way to Mercado Ver-o-Peso, the largest open-air market in Latin America that dates back to 1625. A scenic navigation of Breves Narrows takes you through the equatorial forest of lush scenes of exotic flora and fauna. As you cross the equator, you enter King Neptune’s territory. In Charlotteville, climb down into Pirates’ Bay, where, according to legend, Black Beard and Henry Morgan once buried their treasures.

Apr 27    Devils Island, French Guiana   Arrive: 9:00AM Depart: 6:00PM
Devils Island, French Guiana

Devil’s Island, its true name Cayenne, is a penal colony of French Guiana with a haunted history. Here lie the crumbled remains of a prison opened in 1852 and shut down in 1953. Infamous for housing French political prisoners, it even served as the backdrop for the 1973 action-thriller film Papillon. Nestled among the palm trees and tropical setting hides a turbulent past truth.

The currents near Devil’s Island are so strong, visitors can only access by Zodiac. Once they arrive on the island, they can roam among the ruins, gazing at the fallen walls that once housed the likes of prisoners like Captain Alfred Dreyfus. A quiet befalls this uninhabited island weighed with such a troubled history.

As the wind blows through the palm trees and you traverse the remains of the island, you cannot help but sense the eerie calm of its isolation. Moss and vines grown over the remains of the buildings make it seem like a part of history that happened so long ago, but really only came to an end within the last century.

A walk through what remains of the corridors leading to the former prison cells is accompanied by the rustle of the winds and the distant sounds of animals scurrying about the island. A solemn air permeates the atmosphere until you step back out of the shade of the palms and into the warm sunlight.

Apr 30    Charlotteville, Tobago   Arrive: 8:00AM Depart: 10:00PM
Charlotteville, Tobago

The sleepy fishing village of Charlotteville offers the charms of a tropical Caribbean expedition with the remote feel of small-town living away from mainstream tourism. Located on the northeast tip of Tobago along Man-o-War Bay, the quiet, beachside getaway gives travelers the blue waters and palm trees they desire with less crowds.

Tobago’s history of pirates calls out to the adventurer in all. Explorers can climb down the stone steps leading into the Pirates’ Bay cove where the likes of Black Beard, Henry Morgan, and Captain Finn once made the base of their escapades. Legend has it their treasure is still buried under the sands.

For a truly secluded experience, check out the small strip of Lover’s Beach, accessible only by boat. With pink sands that sparkle in the sun, the effects of a shoreline made of crushed seashells, and surrounding cliffs lush with green, it’s easy to see how this bay earned its romantic reputation.

A short walk away from the village of Charlotteville lies the historic site of Fort Campbellton. The cannons at the hilltop of the old fort point out toward Man-o-War Bay, leading the eye to a mesmerizing landscape. From this vantage point you can take in the sight of the surrounding mountains and sandy beaches below.

Along Tobago’s beaches you can stop in at a local bar and restaurant and order a dish of the catch of the day. As fishing is the island’s main industry, you are always guaranteed fresh seafood plates wherever you roam in Charlotteville.

May 01    Mayreau, St. Vincent & Grenadines   Arrive: 8:00AM Depart: 6:00PM
Mayreau, St. Vincent & Grenadines

Located in the heart of the Caribbean Sea, St. Vincent and the Grenadines bring to mind idyllic island living in a destination less traveled. Perhaps the most remote among these islands is Mayreau, the smallest of the Grenadines. Among Mayreau’s most well-known spots is Salt Whistle Bay, an unspoiled beach protected from rough Atlantic waves by a strip of land extending out into the ocean. This makes it the perfect locale to spend a calm and soothing day taking in the sun’s rays with a craft cocktail in hand. Bask in the sun all day as you revel in a beach party along its immaculate shores.

May 02    Bridgetown, Barbados   Arrive: 6:00AM
Bridgetown, Barbados

The historic capital of Barbados, Bridgetown, contains centuries of colonial architecture that display the spread of the British Empire. The Barbados Garrison, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, consists of many old buildings filled with the fascinating history of how the island grew into what it is today. Lying along the southwest coast of Carlisle Bay, it also offers beautiful and serene beach scenes with soft, white sand. And it’s an enticing destination with ancient shipwrecks to dive and explore near the coast, like the S.S. Stavronikita, one of the most popular dive sites in the entire Caribbean. A trip to Barbados is not complete without a sampling of the local rum at St. Nicholas Abbey, one of the oldest distilleries in the Caribbean.
