Martinique Island
Martinique is directly north of St. Lucia, northwest of Barbados and south of Dominica. Land mass is 420 square miles of which 15 square miles is water. The island is volcanic in origin. The population is estimated at approximately 390,000. Martinique owes its name to Christopher Columbus who sited the island in 1493 and later to return in 1502 naming the island Martinica.

Historically, Martinique's economy relied on sugar cane farming which has since dwindled. Today tourism is the main source of income as well as the export of bananas to France.

The island has quirky historical sites which compliment European flair and Caribbean beauty. It is fashionable and elegant with an abundance of flora. A leading destination for European vacationers, it offers gorgeous beaches, great food and a variety of accommodations. Tourism is an important economic base yet, so are banana farming, cane raising and rum to a lesser degree.


Dominica
People say that the 'Nature Island' is the only Caribbean island that Columbus would recognize today. Virgin rainforests stand proud and tall. Waterfalls cascade from glorious heights where birds fill the forest with color and song. Dominica is a dream-like island, full of surprises. The steep mountainsides and lush jungle-like beauty might remind you of a Rousseau landscape. Glide through a steamy orchid-festooned rainforest in a fascinating boat ride up the winding Layrou River. Or, hike to breathtaking Trafalgar Falls and a bubbling lake.

Isle des Saintes, Guadeloupe
The Îles des Saintes (literally, "Islands of the (female) Saints"), also called simply Les Saintes, are a group of islands within the French overseas department of Guadeloupe. They are located about 8 miles southwest of Guadeloupe and as such belong to the Lesser Antilles. Their land area is 4.9 sq. miles and they had a population of 2,883 inhabitants at the 2005 census.

Nalunega, San Blas Islands
Discover the beautiful and colorful Kuna Indians as you spend the day in the village watching traditional song and dance, shopping for the famous Mola handicrafts, and interacting with the locals.

Kuna society is matriarchal. Land rights pass down to female members of a family. The women are the keepers of the culture, teaching traditions to their daughters, in succeeding generations. Among their traditions is the sewing and wearing of Molas, the brightly colored, multi-layered embroidered fabrics that are the best-recognized symbol of Kuna culture. Blouses, skirts, masks and other Mola items are available for sale. If the timing is right, you can view a performance of native dances.
