The main Caribbean yacht charter season might be coming to an end, but there are still a few fantastic weeks to enjoy. For many travelers the Caribbean seems drenched in ideas of loose and laid back shores, coconut rum in a swinging hammock and superyachts gleaming in prestigious marinas. Of course the Caribbean is flooded with azure waters, powder soft pink sands, swaying palms and sheer luxury, but under the glistening surface there is a vibrant culture that resonates with music, spicy food, laughter and plenty of love. Stepping off your superyacht charter and immersing yourself in the evocative nature of the Caribbean is incredibly rewarding.
The melting pot of cultures, the balmy weather, the pirate bay history and the Spanish, African, French, Dutch and American influences all seem to collide in a mesmerizing haze. MOTOR YACHT STARFIRE is the only way to discover the bounty of the Caribbean Sea; opulent surroundings invite you to sigh away all your worries, to sip spiced rum cocktails in the steaming Jacuzzi, to dive from the swim deck into crystalline waters and to sleep in blissful master suites adorned in designer style.
African rhythms blend with bountiful blue sea bliss on the lively shores of Antigua. This Caribbean paradise is infused with a hint of European old world magic and Creole colour that seeps into the sound of the steel drums, the spice of local cuisine and the lyrical language that resonates in starry festival nights. Every July carnival spirit fills the streets of Antigua and you can spend days preparing on your superyacht with a touch of rest, rejuvenation and perfect pampering before hitting the feathered clubs for the biggest rum soaked party of the year. In St Johns’ you can explore the bright and bustling local markets, visit the museum of Antigua and admire the handcrafted pottery, the abundant flora and fauna and find out all about the sorrows of the islands former slave industry.
Taino, African and Spanish weave together on the sun soaked shores of colourful Puerto Rico resulting in a hedonistic mix of singing, dancing, flamboyant architecture and fine food doused in flavour. From your superyacht deck you can snorkel and swim in the warmth of the sea and soak up the sheer tranquility, but as soon as you step ashore your senses are sure to be set on fire. Start the day with a thick dark and dreamy cup of native coffee on the sundeck before wandering around old San Juan and see the romantic Spanish balconies, the pretty pastel colours and the baroque style cathedrals. Duck into Botánica shops to find out all about the rich and mysterious folklore and the demons that haunt the island and breathe in the aroma of lime juice and spices rubbed into succulent meats every time you pass a kitchen.
Traditional tree art, floating markets, playing the cow horn and a rich heritage steeped in African roots makes Curacao a culture lover’s dream. Curacao seems to boast barefoot luxury at its finest meaning that you can swim from your superyacht charter to sugary sands should you wish and relax on the beach with a cold beer and delicious dinner free from conformity. The Dutch influence is sprinkled generously across the island especially when it comes to the language and the pastel painted toy town architecture of Willemstad. The museum Kura Hulanda is a treasure trove of African art and the Aloe Vera plantation gives you a glimpse into the agricultural side of the island away from the trendsetting blue shores of postcard perfect paradise.
Trinidad always seems to be boasting bright and beautiful celebrations, which is why it seems such an exotic port of call for superyacht charters. Carnival is filled with splashes of colour and edges of drama that help to bring the history to life. The island is also brimming with natural pleasures from turtle watching to deep cave exploration, but it’s the culture that will really leave shining smiles. Go with the chef from luxury yacht SATRFIRE to witness the bounty of mangos and exotic fruits at the local market, dance to the steel drums around a blazing beach fire and go wild with the crowd over a simple cricket match. Another joy of venturing to Trinidad on a luxury superyacht is that it’s only a short sail away to discover the sister shores of Tobago.
