6. Underwater Adventures in the Cayman Islands
When much of the country is freezing, the Cayman Islands offer a perfect Caribbean climate: warm, sunny, did we mention warm? This is a vacation for the ocean lovers looking to explore the undersea world. You can do everything from snorkel to explore a shipwreck to play with sea turtles. Perhaps the most famous attraction is Stingray City, where you can get up close and personal with stingrays; we’re not talking about watching these creatures from a boat–you actually get to swim with them and pet them. Yikes! It’s a once in a lifetime experience that needs to be shared with your family.
