Readers' Choice: These Are the 2017 Caribbean Winners


Check out the Caribbean's best restaurants, resorts, beaches and attractions

[post_ads_2]
There were nearly 29 million arrivals in the Caribbean in 2015, according to the Caribbean Tourism Organization, with that number growing as much as seven percent per year. With beautiful beaches, rich heritage, stellar weather, luxe resorts and some of the world's best seafood, it's no wonder that the Caribbean is such a popular destination.

10Best set out to find the best resorts, restaurants, beaches, attractions, golf courses and dive sites in the region, and to do so, we asked a panel of Caribbean travel experts to select 20 nominees in each category. For the past four weeks, our readers have been voting daily for their favorites, and the results are in.

Best Caribbean Resort - Jade Mountain, St. Lucia

Located above Anse Chastanet Beach on St. Lucia's southwestern coast, Jade Mountain is perhaps most famous for its 24 infinity pool sanctuaries and five sky jacuzzi suites overlooking the majestic Pitons and the Caribbean sea. 


Best Restaurant in the Caribbean - Casa Cortés ChocoBar, Puerto Rico

Located in Old San Juan, Casa Cortés ChocoBar earns accolades for its weekend brunch, with dishes like Chocolicious French Toast and artisanal yogurt mousse with granola. Its pastry and hot chocolate menus also shine.


Best Caribbean Beach - Anse Chastanet, St. Lucia

Those lucky enough to be sprawled out on the sands of Anse Chastanet Beach on St. Lucia enjoy stellar views of the Piton Mountains and snorkeling just 10 yards from the beach.


Best Caribbean Attraction - La Soufriere Drive-In Volcano, St. Lucia

The Sulphur Springs of St. Lucia rank as the hottest and most active geothermal area in the Lesser Antilles – an island attraction that proudly calls itself the only drive-in volcano in the Caribbean. Hot springs, mud pools and steam vents dominate the landscape.


Best Caribbean Golf Course - The Green Monkey at Sandy Lane, Barbados

This exclusive Tom Fazio-designed 72 par course in Barbados was carved from an old limestone quarry. The course features exposed rock, rolling greens and a serious elevation change for a memorable Caribbean golfing experience.


Best Caribbean Dive Site - Utila, Honduras

Located along the second largest barrier reef in the world, Utila offers diverse topography for divers of all skill levels. Sites surrounding the tiny island include wrecks, deep drop-offs, shallow reefs and caves.


Congratulations to all of our Caribbean winners. Next time you're planning a Caribbean vacation, make sure to keep these 10Best lists handy.
