This includes the stunning islands in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Northrop-Johnson Caribbean yacht charters is the perfect way to explore these lush islands that are full of unspoiled landscapes and unique cultures.

The Caribbean was impacted by hurricanes last year, most notably islands stretching from Barbuda to Puerto Rico. While hurricanes Maria and Irma wreaked havoc on territories such as Dominica, the British Virgin Islands, and Barbuda, they spared other areas of the Southern Caribbean.

Thankfully, great progress has been made in restoring the five-star resorts, luxury spas, and fine dining restaurants on the islands impacted by the hurricanes. In fact, according to the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association, about half of the 129 CHTA member hotels are open. By December of this year, all of the hotels are expected to reopen.
