The Caribbean islands, combined, are about 90,000 square miles of land mass, roughly half of it hilly or mountainous and the other half flat land. Most of the islands are a gloriously scenic combination of the two landscapes, circled by sandy beaches, which themselves are surrounded by the crystal-clear waters of the sea.

Mother Nature has been extraordinarily diverse and creative in her artwork. Depending on your island of choice, you'll be stunned by what you see - from volcanic mountains (some active) to stretches of desert, mangrove swamps to sand dunes, and natural rock formations (some with just huge boulders) to vibrantly colored coral reefs that must be seen on a scuba diving excursion. There are limestone cliffs and limestone caves, rivers both above and below ground, rapids, waterfalls, forests, rainforests, bluffs and lakes and blowholes. Always, there is the sea waiting to be sailed. There is nothing more spectacular than a sunrise or sunset over the Caribbean Sea.

The intensely panoramic splendor of the Caribbean defies description. To truly appreciate it, you need to see it for yourself. Of course, there is a lot to take in throughout the region. Find a topic below that is particularly important to you, and click it to learn where that option is available.

Nature Preserves

Barbados Wildlife Reserve

Inhabiting, coloring, and flavoring all of this geology are the living creations of nature, the flora and fauna. There is what seems to be an endless number of species of plants and animals, many indigenous, many adopted, some endangered. You might stumble upon a shovelnose shark, a loggerhead turtle, or a cannonball tree. You could see the world's largest butterfly, the world's smallest hummingbird, or have your ears assailed by a very noisy grackle.

Besides more well-known species like flamingos, terns, and pelicans, birders might catch a glimpse of a barrancoli, a flautero, or a bananaquit. Migrating birds, both from the north and the south often pass through the islands. Botany lovers will recognize hibiscus, frangipani, and orchids, but may be surprised by a fish-tail palm or an ackee tree. There will also be iguanas, mongoose, parrots, monkeys, poinsettias, ferns, and coconut palms to see for those interested in many different aspects of tropical nature. Below you'll see just some of the Caribbean's nature preserves and their locations listed.

St. John Natural Attractions

Fully two-thirds of St. John in the US Virgin Islands is part of the United States National Park system. M. Timothy O' Keefe, author of Caribbean Afoot, recommends the entire island as one of the top ten hikes in the Caribbean. There are coral reefs that can be explored by underwater or snorkeling, campsites, and well maintained trails that take you past all manner of plants, flowers, and trees. Wildlife is abundant, as are the park rangers who act as guides. For unspoiled, pristine beauty, the Virgin Islands National Park is the place to be.

El Yunque National Forest

Another great option for nature lovers is nearby: Puerto Rico is absolutely packed with possibilities for getting in touch with nature in a lush tropical setting. Perhaps the best known option is the El Yunque Rainforest and the surrounding mountains. This is home to some 240 species of trees, inhabited by millions of tiny tree frogs called "coquis" that get rather vocal at night. Also dwelling here is the endangered green parrot called "cotorra." There are a significant number of hiking trails, including some that are short enough and easy enough for the kids and the not-so-physically-fit. The panoramic lookouts offer stunning views. There are also campsites available.

Guadeloupe's National Park, where you will find the active La Soufriere Volcano, charges no admission fee and has no established hours. Here you will encounter exhibition huts to educate you about the volcano and the plant and animal life. On one of the many marked trails you may be lucky enough to meet one of the park's mascots, a raccoon called "titi." There are gigantic ferns and hot springs, and you won't want to miss Crayfish Waterfall while there.

The Arikok National Park in Aruba comprises approximately 20 percent of the island. You can ascend Aruba's highest peak or go exploring in the caves. The wildlife is plentiful and includes parakeets and iguanas. Lignum vitae, an endangered species of tree, can be found here as well.

The Barbados Wildlife Reserve, comprised mostly of mahogany forest, features uncaged monkeys frolicking along with a variety of tropical birds and other wildlife.

As you can tell from the following list, these are just a few of the many locations in the Caribbean where the area's natural beauty and unique ecological systems are being preserved for future generations.

Hiking Trails

Cruz Bay Natural Attractions

The intense beauty of the natural world is practically inescapable in the Caribbean. You're never far from a beach, a garden, or a panoramic view. Most of the time all you have to do is look out your window or take a casual stroll. You can certainly get caught up in the splendor without spending the first minute planning for it, and without knowing the names of the plants and animals you encounter. There is something very satisfying about hiking that you feel in both your mind and your body. As you put your feet to the ground, you'll be as close to the area's natural life as you're going to get while keeping your body active and your mind sharp.

Dudu Lagoon Park

The Dominican Republic is an ideal stop for hikers and mountain bikers as it has the tallest mountains in the Caribbean. Pico Duarte, in the Cordillera Central Range reaches 10,164 feet above sea level. Mountainsides are typified by rivers, waterfalls, and pine forests. Guides are required for many of the mountain climbs here, and the cost for the trek will usually include food and mules. You can also enjoy supreme whitewater rafting in the Dominican Republic.

Adventurous travelers will want to head to Cockpit County in Jamaica, where unexplored caves and hiking trails are waiting to be discovered. If you prefer spectacular elevation changes, the Blue Mountains, just north of Kingston, offer secure camp grounds and many clearly marked trails.

Of course, when it comes to hiking you won't want to overlook Dominica. The highlight here is the Waitukubuli National Trail, which is 115 miles long and travels not only through the Morne Trois Pitons National Park, but many small villages that give you a sense of local culture as well as nature.

Enjoying activities such as hiking or biking instead of driving is not only fun and healthy for you, but it is great for the environment as well. Plan to spend some time bird-watching instead of shopping, and do your part to avoid endangering plants and animals. If you've been inspired to strike out and explore, the list below of designating hiking trails in the Caribbean will come in handy for you.

Arecibo Lighthouse Historical Park

The relatively new concept of eco-tourism is growing fast. Many of the individual Caribbean governments have begun to recognize and acknowledge the value of their natural resources and their history, as well as their historical sites. In conjunction with worldwide environmental groups, the tourism industry is helping to further develop the concept, along with local governments. What you'll see on the list below is a collection of parks in the Caribbean, many of which have been designated as "historical parks." These locations have more to offer than just green space, including possible historic buildings or other naturally made structures. These natural attractions are unique in that many offer that historical element along with the space for kids to run and play and families to enjoy picnic lunches together on a sunny afternoon. If this sounds like an idyllic venture, take a look at this chart to begin planning a day in the park on your next trip.

The National Trust of the Bahamas dedicates itself to the care and preservation of all natural sites in the Bahamas. There are 14 national parks that feature such wonders as green turtle habitats, the largest private collection of palm trees in the world, the world's largest underwater cave system, and a lad crab habitat. There are also several gardens with bright, fragrant blooms worth exploring.

Derek Walcott Square

As previously mentioned, history can sometimes play a role in the creation of a park. Often, in order to honor a specific figure or time in the past, a park is erected as a place to people to gather and simply enjoy being outside. Throughout the region, some of these parks include Derek Walcott Square in Castries, St. Lucia, the Emilio Wilson Historic Park in Sint Maarten, and the Clifton Heritage Park on New Providence Island in the Bahamas. A trip to any of these parks will not only be fun, but may provide a bit of historical insight into the country as well.

On the other hand, some parks are purely about the fun. Boca del Rio Park in , Belize and Cueva Fun Fun in the Dominican Republic are little more than family-friendly amusement parks.

Botanical Gardens

Saint George Village Botanical Gardens

Tourists often find themselves awed by the beauty of the flora in the Caribbean. Bright, fragrant blooms unlike what you might find in a more northern climate are common here, and many people are left wondering exactly what type of flower they are looking at. This is where botanical gardens can come in handy, because aside from being beautiful and peaceful, they are also educational tools with placards describing the types of flowers you are seeing at every turn.

Of course, not every botanical garden focuses solely on local flowers. The Butterfly Garden in Charlotte Amalie in the US Virgin Islands and the Laura Herb and Spice Garden on Grenada are two such examples. Another favorite in the region is the Andromeda Botanic Gardens in Bathsheba, Barbados because it offers an unforgettable look at thousands of orchids along with hibiscus, ferns, palms, other tropical plants, and the occasional hummingbird.

While all of the gardens on the list below are known for their beauty and peacefulness, some have a little more to say. For example, on in the Bahamas there is a garden called the Byrle Patterson Memorial Garden that was grown in memory of those who died during a cholera epidemic on the island. Also in the Bahamas but on Nassau is the Garden of Remembrance which is for those who lost their lives in World Wars One and Two.

Farms and Plantations

De La Grenade Nutmeg Garden

A huge part of the history of the Caribbean has to do with plantation life, and while many of the old plantations have fallen into ruins, there are a few that stand tall, not allowing history to forget what occurred on these lands. There is an interesting divide in these farms and plantations. While some are historic sites that give visitors a glimpse into out-of-practice methods for the production of boom crops like sugar, others are farms that in operation today and invite tourists to see how things are run and even lend a hand. A few of the former include the in Jamaica and the Hermitage Estate on Nevis. Farms in action today that you might consider stopping by are the Aloe Vera Plantation on Curacao and the Virgin Islands Sustainable Farms Institute on St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands. Finally, there is Jamaica's Croydon in the Mountains which covers both style of plantations. Not only is it currently operational, but the tour includes historic elements to it.

Listed below are these establishment and more that invite visitors to tour the grounds and see what life was like for plantation owners and workers in centuries past through to today.

Zoos and Aquariums

Emperor Valley Zoo

Zoos and aquariums have their place as major attractions in the Caribbean as well. These spots give tourists a controlled environment in which to get to know local (and foreign) creatures that might otherwise be dangerous to encounter in the wild. Some even allow you to get close enough to pet the ostriches, or swim with the dolphins.

One thing you may want to look for as you consider visiting a zoo or aquarium during your getaway is whether or not the location specializes in animals local to the region, or that you might have a hard time encountering in your home town. Ostriches seem to be particularly popular in the Caribbean. Aruba Ostrich Adventures and the Curacao Ostrich Farm both specialize in the bird.

Caicos Conch Farm

The Caicos Conch Farm is an interesting an hands-on destination, while the Cayman Turtle Farm works to teach guests not only about turtles but other marine life that is native to the Cayman Islands. The Belize Zoo has a unique back story that you can read about here, but it is also notable because they take in native and exotic animals that were once kept as pets despite not necessarily being pet material.

Take a look below for locations and contact information to some of the Caribbean’s zoos and aquariums.

Caves

Fantasy Caves

Many people love touring caves for the mystery and the beauty of the stalagmite and stalactite configurations that often accompany them, sparkling in the darkness. Some locations have capitalized on this fascination and offer guided tours for a fee, while others are located seaside and invite guests in to explore the shallow wonders on their own. Some are hidden from view, some are right out in the open, and some are yet to be discovered.

Cancun is home to a number of natural attractions that take explorers to dark and hidden places. Xplor is an underground park, where rocks have shaped miles of caverns that speak to how the land above came to be. Xplor is for the adventurous vacationer, and features zip-line tours and underground rafting.

Belize is another destination known for its underground wonders. There are more than half a dozen caves that operate as major tourist attractions, including the Laguna Caves which offers guided tours every morning; the Chumpiate Maya Cave, Actun Chapat, and Blue Creek Cave which were once occupied by the Maya; and Blue Hole Cave where visitors can go for a dip in the underground water system as well as explore.

Crystal Caves

Throughout the region, caves have become very popular tourist attractions and some locations have capitalized on that by offering specific eco-adventures like rappelling, swimming, boat tours, and more. Two perfect examples is the Crystal Caves in Bermuda and Cueva Fun Fun Cave on the Dominican Republic.

Take a look at some of the caves we do know about on the following chart.

Waterfalls

Twenty-Seven Waterfalls of Damajagua

Waterfalls are powerful parts of the water cycle in the Caribbean, and many tourists will hike for hours just to see those that are known for their height, beauty, and clear pools that are perfect for swimming. It is recommended that if you’re on the hunt for a waterfall that is not so easy to find that you hire a guide to take you into the forest or jungle to find it unless you’re in a well marked nature preserve which will guide you with signs. Take a look at this chart, where you’ll see only a small collection of the waterfalls in the region.

One of the best islands for waterfall treks is Jamaica. Dunn's River Falls is perhaps the best known waterfall and is always busy with tourists -- especially if there is a cruise ship in port. If you crave something a little quieter, consider visiting Somerset Falls which is located at a botanical garden and part of a boat tour that allows guests to jump right in and start swimming. Another great waterfall on the island is YS Falls which has become an attraction in and of itself surrounded by zip-lining tours, botanical gardens, and a calm pool of natural water for swimming.

Juan Diego Falls

Puerto Rico is another country you constantly hear mentioned when the discussion of waterfalls comes up, with La Mina Falls being the most popular. The geography is interesting to look at, but it can get crowded in the afternoon so most recommend you stop by before lunch time. La Coca Falls and the Juan Diego Falls are both located in the El Yunque Rainforest, and two other top choices include the Chorro de Oro and Gonzalandia.

On Dominica, there are eight major waterfalls that feed into the island's 365 rivers, and tourists are encouraged to try and visit each of them. These waterfalls are Chaudiere, Spanny's, Milton Falls, Emerald Pool, Sari Sari, Middleham, Trafalagar, and Victoria Falls. They are all easily accessible after a short hike through the rainforest, and some can even be reached by car, like Chaurdiere.

Volcanoes

Gros Pitons

Mother Nature isn't finished with her handiwork yet. Though rare, volcanic eruptions and earthquakes could cause a stir by changing topography and creating new landforms. The violent winds and drenching rains of hurricanes might be blamed for shifting beach sand from one place to another, for etching out a tiny bay that wasn't there before, or speeding up the erosion process of one already in existence.

Not every island in the Caribbean is laden with volcanoes, but there are quite a few worth visiting if you're interested in the striking, verdant landscape that generally goes hand-in-hand with these mountainous structures.Dominica tops the list with St. Lucia coming it at a close second, but you'll also be able to visit volcanoes on Martinique, Guadeloupe, and . Perhaps the most notable volcanoes in the region are the Pitons on St. Lucia, which is comprised of two different volcanoes that are easily explored by hiking trail.
