Accustomed to a festive period blighted by snow and cold spells, spending Christmas under the Caribbean sun is a dream for many. So, let's swap snowmen for sandcastles, mistletoe for palm trees, woolly hats for straw hats... and get ready to experience a truly unforgettable Christmas!
Christmas & sun
Although we automatically associate Christmas with the cold, over in the Caribbean it means at least 25 degrees in the sun and all the traditions we're used to celebrating.
Christmas decorations in the tropics? Yes!
If you choose to spend the holidays in the Caribbean, you can rest assured that you'll find the same decorations as over here, thanks to the traditions inherited from the Spanish colonies. Christmas lights on the streets, Christmas trees on the beach and Santa Claus collecting letters from all the children.
No shortage of Christmas carols
Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without carols, and the Caribbean people know this perfectly well. Music plays a very important role in the festive period and you can listen to the classic carols mixed in with Latin rhythms or even some reggae.
We love presents!
Santa also stops off in the Caribbean and drops his presents down the chimney for children and adults. In the Caribbean, Santa's gifts are usually opened on 25 December.
Curiosities of a Caribbean Christmas
The locals usually celebrate Christmas in style, but they also have a curious tradition to attract good luck in the coming year: it's usual to clean out your house, getting rid of old or unusable stuff and making room for all the new things to come. It's also widely believed that painting your house just before the New Year will bring good luck for the next twelve months.
