Fly to the Caribbean and Party Like a Local

Although the resort's karaoke bar and hotel steel band may be fun for the first, second or even third night, it's the locals who really know how to have a good time!

In Antigua every Sunday evening the legendary Shirley Heights is alive with a good-natured mix of locals, tourists and, most essentially, rum punch. What starts off as a family-friendly barbecue on top of the historic lookout point at 4 o’clock rapidly turns into an outdoor nightclub as the sun sets and top international DJs take to the stage to blast reggae beats out over the sea.

In St Lucia every Friday an all night 'jump-up' street party spills across the Gros Islet region. People open their homes to sell fried fish, roasted plantain and other must-try street side grub. Visitors arrive from neighbouring islands ready for the weekly festivities, so just follow the crowds, the stereo sounds and the smell of barbecue!

St Lucia is not alone in the fishy festivities. For those on holiday in Barbados, a Friday night trip to Oistins Fish-Fri is famous around the West Indies. An unassuming fishing village by day, at night it hosts a beach party with plenty of dancing in the streets.

With a mix of musical styles, age groups, and cuisines (including the freshest seafood you'll find), what starts as an informal alfresco dining experience soon livens up with all manner of dancing, domino playing and generally enjoying the atmosphere – known as 'liming' to the Caribbean people. Fortunately such mingling opportunities can be found on most islands and the party season, like the sunshine, is year round in this part of the world.
