Caribbean Destinations : Discover Cuba, Part 1 By Raquel B Tejeda - Cuba, that grand island of mystery, is also a land of timeless beauty, an eco-paradise, the land that time forgot and an other-worldly sort of travel experience as one feels as though they are stuck in a time warp…but certainly a most enchanting one.   The largest Caribbean island, Cuba is all you can dream of and a much more. Pulsating with sensual music, endless sandy beaches, captivating culture, old-age architecture, welcoming locals, and delicious food it is the sort of time warp experience you’ll never want to leave. This is the largest of the Caribbean islands, which is about the size of England. It lies to the west of the Greater Antilles group and about a quarter of its terrain is mountainous. Cuba consists of the main island, the Isle of Youth and about 4,195 Cayes, commonly known as Cayos. Cuba is 140 kilometers from the Bahamas and 180 kilometers from Florida. It’ 13,000,000 inhabitants predominantly speak Spanish.
Caribbean Environment: A Solar Solution for the World’s Poor - Solar Cooling, Dehumidification and Refrigeration – A Hot Idea for the Tropics By James Post - In an evaporator, an ammonia fluid coming from a condenser is being evaporated in a similar manner as with compression cooling. The ammonia vapor is led to an absorption vessel where it immediately dissolves. Hydrogen is used to create a lower pressure in the evaporator compared to the condenser. As the hydrogen does not dissolve in the water, the ammonia and hydrogen are separated in the absorption vessel. The ammonia is dissolved in the water and the hydrogen rises via a separate conduit back to the evaporator. To get the ammonia out of the water the solution is sent to a heater (in our case solar heated water). As the ammonia vapor contains some water vapor the conduit is being widened at which point the water parts let loose and get transported back to the absorption vessel via a separate conduit.  This explains the closed loop cycle that does not require moving parts. The evaporation takes away heat from its surrounding and that is how the cooling takes place – similar to a compressor based refrigerator.
Caribbean Culinary : Mexican Cuisine - A Fusion of the Past  by  S. Mar Carter - During the past year I have traveled and explored (in complete safety) the vast, spectacularly beautiful country of Mexico, and became thoroughly enthralled with its steamy seaside ports, classic colonial cities, tiny fishing villages with white beaches, chilly mountain villages, authentic arts and crafts and its kind, gracious people. Along the way I become thoroughly enthralled with Mexican cuisine as well. By this, I mean the authentic cuisine one finds throughout most of Mexico…not the ‘food’ found in America that is passing itself off as Mexican cuisine. In the food places in these cities and villages in Mexico I’ve yet to see a taco, burrito or chimichanga on the menu.  My new passion for this scrumptious, comfort-food cuisine lead me to explore its origin, which as it turns out is a grand amalgamation of the food products, spices and recipes from many other countries, combined with the now lost recipes of original Mexican cuisine. Original Mexican recipes morphed and fused, decade after decade, as French, Italian, Lebanese, Spanish, Portuguese, and British influences and food products were introduced to the local Mexican cooks.

Caribbean Expats : Designing Mid-Life in Belize by Yvette Dalton - Recently someone asked me how, and why, did I become an “expat.”  I knew what an expat was but had not considered me to be one - and yet here I am living in Belize, my new home.  All things considered, I realize that I have become a part-time resident in that special club of pioneering souls who pack up, say goodbye to their homeland and settle down in a new country. I never thought of myself as a ‘pioneering spirit’ nor did I ever crave to chuck it all and just run away!  I grew up just south of Dayton, Ohio USA, a member of a typical American family. I have always been an independent person and not afraid to try new adventures – well, with the exception of things that have to do with heights. So no jumping out of airplanes, but zip-lining in Hawaii I would recommend for sure!! That was a blast. Once I pried my arms from hugging the tree top, I was on my way.
Caribbean Spirit : Creating Habitat Belize by Reverend Macarena Rose - hab - i - tat   (a noun) - Sociological definition from the dictionary:  the place where a person or thing is most likely to be found.  In other words… HOME.  A very powerful word that brings a lot to mind, doesn't it?  It's a powerful concept and evokes many memories and feelings for each and every one of us....  We all need a home…. that's for sure.  No one has to explain this to us.  It’s been basic to our existence as humans on earth since the beginning.  Overhanging trees, caves, whatever our ancestors could find - they made good use of local options to shelter and protect their young.  Home is a place in which to center our lives. That hasn't changed. It never will. The size and style of housing have varied through the ages according to status and natural materials available - but the concept of "home" has never varied. Home… It's where our heart is, where our loved ones reside with us.  A home is a place of nurturing.
Caribbean Gems : Sybarite Guide to DR Beaches, Pt 3 By: Guitze M. Messina - We have taken a nice tour on the most visited beaches of the Dominican Republic, we are now going to take a look at a region with enormous potential for its diversity and natural beauty: The south west of the Dominican Republic. To have a great feel for the best beaches in the south of the island we need to start early in the day and head out to Bani from Santo Domingo. This region is not as famous because the beaches have   different types of sand from grey to black to pearl white and because until very recently the roads where not as good as the ones   to Samana and Punta Cana. The new road being completed will make it a very pleasant and fast trip where we will make different stops to  enjoy the authentic flavor of the region before we arrive at the different beaches that we want to visit.
Caribbean Destinations : Anguilla Does It their Way, Part. 1 By S. Mar Carter - There has been a lot going on behind the scenes in Anguilla the past few years to position it as the “IT” small island in the Caribbean. In 2009, Anguilla, that most serene of Caribbean island paradises and one known for its tranquility, beauty and famed upscale resorts, began developing new initiatives and ‘product’ changes to entice the lucrative incentive and meeting planning business to its pristine shores. Anguilla’s objective was to emerge as a new destination in the Caribbean’s highly competitive incentive and meeting travel industry.  And, by all accounts Anguilla is succeeding as not only have the incentive and meeting planners taken a closer look at this unspoiled tropical island gem, but general tourism has seen a business increase in critical areas as well.

Caribbean Discovery : Discovering Dominica Search Results from Magazine Archives 19 Articles Found - Most people have never heard of Dominica… or they confuse it with the Dominican Republic. Fewer still would know where to look for it on a map. Dominica is one of those places that you need to have some idea what you are doing to be able to really get a feel for the place. Signposts are scarce, and you surely cannot visit all the essentials in a day. One thing is for sure… Dominica truly unique and, above all, possesses a duality of breathtaking landscapes and strong culture. This means that for those people who, like me, get to spend some time on the island, it remains largely un-spoilt, untouched, unchartered territory. My Caribbean Lonely Planet guidebook had only a few pages dedicated to Dominica so I arrived not knowing what to expect. I know of at least two Dominica-dedicated guidebooks in the works and I applaud them for attempting to fill the gap.
