DAY 1 | FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA

With an average temperature of 75 degrees and 3,000 hours of sunshine per year, Fort Lauderdale’s gorgeous beaches are just the beginning of the city’s attractions. Venturing into the water allows for scuba diving, deep-sea fishing or an airboat tour of the Everglades with a live gator show. Often called the “Venice of America” for its many canals and waterways, Fort Lauderdale is also a lovely place for a stroll. A trek along the Riverwalk reveals a tropical landscape lined with restaurants, art and entertainment and continues down Las Olas Boulevard for a posh shopping spree. Architectural highlights include the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, Stranahan House and City Hall. Also check out FAT Village, downtown's creative enclave for art, crafts, music and fun. Restaurants showcase the wizardry of celebrity chefs as well as local talent. Settle in for the atmosphere and ambrosia in any number of Jamaican and Brazilian restaurants citywide.

DAY 2 | KEY WEST, FLORIDA

Closer to Cuba than to Miami, the southernmost city in the continental United States can feel like a country all its own. Home to free spirits, scuba divers and six-toed cats, Key West is defined by its quirky charm. People go barefoot, chickens roam the streets and eclectic culture rules. Architecture lovers will appreciate classic Caribbean villas, unique Keys conch houses and Victorian and Queen Anne gingerbread homes. Shopping opportunities range from many music and book shops to trendy designer boutiques. Activities not to miss in Key West include watching the sunset in Mallory Square, seeing the cats and literary relics at the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum and eating an authentic piece of Key lime pie. Speaking of eating, from fantastic waterfront seafood dives to authentic Cuban delicacies to the fine-dining establishments of Duval Street, the choices are many and fresh is the word.

DAY 4 | GRAND TURK

On the island of Grand Turk, it’s all about the gorgeous beaches – and the impossibly clear waters surrounding them. The sea starts shallow at the shore and ever so gradually deepens, which creates a spectacular spectrum of every shade of blue imaginable. Step off your yacht, stroll right onto the beach and relax on the pearly white sands. There are also excellent snorkeling and diving spots around the island, including the offshore coral reefs and Gibbs Cay, where you can swim with friendly stingrays. A modern cruise center that resembles a Bermudian village offers duty-free shopping for jewelry, apparel and souvenirs and also features one of the largest swimming pools in the Caribbean and Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville. Historical landmarks are found amidst the charming 18th- and 19th-century colonial architecture of Cockburn Town, including the Turks and Caicos National Museum.

DAY 6 | SAMANA, 
DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

The Samaná peninsula is the Dominican Republic’s natural treasure, a region of verdant mountains, waterfalls, a beautiful bay and miles of pristine beaches. The port town of Santa Bárbara de Samaná overlooks Samaná Bay, where the annual winter gathering of thousands of Atlantic humpback whales is the top attraction. At the bay’s western end, Los Haitises National Park preserves and protects a diverse collection of subtropical plants and birds amid the forests and mangroves. Samaná’s famous beaches are on the northern coast along the Atlantic. Las Terrenas, the most developed town, has a decidedly cosmopolitan air, thanks to the French and Italian expats drawn to the silky sands and crystalline waters of Playa Bonita and Playa El Portillo. Quiet Las Galeras, at the peninsula’s remote far end, is the closest village to idyllic Playa Rincón.

DAY 7 | LA ROMANA, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

Surrounded by rugged terrain and lush vegetation, La Romana is home to crystalline waters, white sand beaches and impressive coral reef life. It's a gateway to charming villages such as Bayahibe, ecological trails and numerous golf resorts. In the town center is El Obelisco, painted with images of local Dominican life. Nearby Altos de Chavon is a replica 16th-century village and cultural center featuring artist studios, galleries, an archaeological museum and sweeping views of the Chavon River. Due south is Catalina Island, surrounded by stunning coral reefs and the sunken wreck of pirate William Kidd's ship Quedagh Merchant. To the southeast, Parque Nacional Del Este houses hundreds of species of flowers and birds and offers beach access to reef diving amongst manatees, dolphins and other sea creatures. Over 400 caves also make the park a spelunker's dream.

DAY 8 | PONCE, PUERTO RICO  

Puerto Rico's second largest city, Ponce is called many things. Founded in 1692, it was named after Ponce de Leon's great grandson and now holds the titles of “Pearl of the South,” “Cradle of Liberty,” “Museum City” and “Ciudad Señorial,” which peg it as elegant, noble, fascinating and stately. By any name, this tropical beauty offers much to boast about. Neoclassical colonial architecture abounds. Museo de Arte de Ponce, Castillo Serrallés and Museo Casa Armstrong are excellent museums. Filled with fountains and monuments, the main square of Plaza Las Delicias features majestic Ponce Cathedral and the striking, red and black Parque de Bombas, a historic fire station. Take a stroll and grab a drink or a bite on Paseo Tablado La Guancha, a seaside boardwalk with bars and eateries. You might also climb the 100-foot-tall observation tower, La Cruz del Vigía, for an amazing photo op or explore Hacienda Buena Vista, a former coffee plantation.

DAY 9 | SAN JUAN,
PUERTO RICO

San Juan, the capital of Puerto Rico, is an intriguing blend of the old and the new. Founded in 1521, the city was a key port in the Spanish colonial empire, as evidenced by El Morro, the huge fortress that guards the harbor. Behind thick stone walls, Old San Juan retains its original character of blue cobblestone streets, elegant plazas and brightly colored heritage architecture. This lively center is the city’s – and island’s – cultural hub for museums, music, dining and more. The nearby Santurce district has emerged as the city’s hippest, with unique shops, cutting-edge restaurants and trendy nightlife. Just minutes from the heart of San Juan are the iconic beaches of the Condado and Isla Verde, whose stretches of palm-fringed sands are lapped by the azure waves of the Atlantic.
