Counting down the Top Ten Reasons Why I Love the Caribbean (especially in winter):
7. Tropical animals and plants:
Iguana feeding frenzy in Honduras.
Mama sloth and baby in Costa Rica
Higuero tree in the Dominican Republic (for making maracas, not eating!)
6. Sunsets & libations:
No green flash.
Sailing past Cuba.
A mimosa greets us upon boarding.
5. Shopping!!! (not that I bought much)
Carved mahogany tables in Honduras.
Sundresses in Panama.
The shopping mall in Cartagena.
