When the days start to turn grey at home, the Caribbean is enticing with its summery temperatures. Colourful houses brighten up the towns, whilst in the rainforests the splashes of colour come from exotic plants. Everyday life is soon forgotten on idyllic beaches. After some relaxing hours spent under the palms, the colourful backdrop may entice you to some adventurous discoveries - explore the islands by jeep, take a sailing trip or swing through the leafy canopy as you try ziplining. Some fabulous ways to spend your autumn days.

Driving on the left, cricket and afternoon tea – the legacy of the British colonial era is clearly evident in the lively capital – and not just in its mansions.
