Reason #7, #6, & #5

Counting down the Top Ten Reasons Why I Love the Caribbean (especially in winter):

7. Tropical animals and plants:

Iguana feeding frenzy in Honduras.

Mama sloth and baby in Costa Rica

Higuero tree in the Dominican Republic (for making maracas, not eating!)

6. Sunsets & libations:

No green flash.

Sailing past Cuba.

A mimosa greets us upon boarding.

5. Shopping!!! (not that I bought much)

Carved mahogany tables in Honduras.

Sundresses in Panama.

The shopping mall in Cartagena.
