Nightlife Hotspots in the Caribbean

Thursday, February 9th, 2012

The Caribbean is known for its balmy tropical days and oftentimes sweltering evenings, but more than anything else, the islands are known for their sizzling nightlife no matter what time of the year you visit this favorite vacation region.  The Caribbean nightlife is driven by salsa and sultry dancing, steel pan percussion rhythms, and tasty rum drinks.  Throw in a casino with a roulette table or other gaming opportunities and you’ll have the ideal combination for enjoying the Caribbean nightlife. Dance away the night at the different pubs and hotspots that are all over the Caribbean islands. If you are confused and looking for the perfect spots, here are some recommendations:

Antigua – it is well known that the soul of Antigua is dancing and music.  You can always play at the casinos, but you want to be sure and save the majority of your energy and time for hitting the night clubs and listen to live Calypso or steel band music.  From barefoot and relaxed to funky and sophisticated, the nightlife in Antigua is the perfect solution for whatever has been ailing you.

Barbados – the island is known for its energetic bar scene, live calypso music, traditional island atmosphere, and waterfront nightclubs.  Dance underneath the nighttime skies while shaking and moving at the steamy atmosphere of a St. Lawrence nightclub or fall in love once again on a romantic nighttime dinner cruise.

Negril, Jamaica – the city of the Negril is the Hedonistic pleasure-seekers Mecca.  Popular nightlife hotspots include the Hedonism II Disco, the Reggae clubs and beachside bars of Montego Bay, and the red hot Jungle Nightclub are the primary venues of Negril.  Jamaica is by far one of the liveliest islands of the Caribbean and perfect for those who want to soak up the sunshine on the beach during the day and enjoy plenty of partying in the evenings.

San Juan, Puerto Rico – dress up for the evening and venture out to explore one of the most exciting nighttime hotspots in the Caribbean, namely any one of the San Juan nightclubs of the Old San Juan Casino, one of Puerto Rico’s most elegant gaming venues.  Dance to salsa music under the nighttime sky down by the Port of San Juan and gyrate on the dance floor until dawn while sipping on piña coladas throughout the evening.

As an additional recommendation, consider Havana, Cuba where you will quickly realize why those Havana nights you have always heard about are as legendary as what you’ve been told.  From the smallest to the largest bars and clubs, when the sun sets, Cuba’s passion ignites the evening.
