For Carlos Mota, the Caribbean represents the very best the world has to offer. The crystal clear waters, beautiful beaches and exquisite natural beauty make these islands some of the most sought after travel destinations across the globe. Thank goodness we have Carlos as our guide across the Caribbean's 7,000 islands, islets and cays.

"For the ultimate slow living retreat, stay at the design-conscious Cap Juluca, a Belmond Hotel, in Maundays Bay."

Los Roques is a large archipelago in front of Caracas, Venezuela. For me, it is the closest thing to heaven. Spend a day here lounging on a deserted stretch of white beach, go island hopping, or enjoy top quality snorkelling and scuba diving in waters rich in sea life. Sample freshly caught seafood, try kitesurfing, or go hiking and enjoy the pristine natural surroundings.
