Basseterre’s volcanic past seeps into the present at its black sand beaches, and its fruit is so sweet thanks to its rich soil. Sip a rum punch made with fresh citrus and you’ll immediately be a fan. While its beaches and diving are quite enticing, the curious can discover the island’s interior, lush with history. Colorful Willemstad boasts 35 beaches and a downtown area that’s a UNESCO World Heritage site. Most citizens here have Dutch passports, but you only need good walking shoes to explore Punda, a neighborhood of floating markets, shops and sidewalk cafes. Since this itinerary is roundtrip from San Juan, there are so many inviting options within easy reach, from gorgeous beaches like “Escambron” to 500-year-old historic forts. Do not miss the opportunity to roam the vibrant streets of Old Town with its mixture of architecture and authentic restaurants.
