That, from an excited 10-year-old boy fresh from one of two daily snorkeling excursions to a nearby reef. The family-owned and -operated resort in the West Indies is all-inclusive, meaning all snorkeling gear and an in-the-water guide is included with your stay. Want to do even more? Kids will fall into bed each night exhausted from water skiing, sailing, rafting, deep-sea fishing, paddle-boating and kayaking. Ask about summer deals."

Air Canada to increase flights out of Jamaica

JamaicaObserver.com: "FOLLOWING the recent divestment of the national carrier Air Jamaica to the Trinidad-based Caribbean Airlines, Air Canada is set to increase its flights out of Jamaica beginning this month. This was disclosed in a release sent to Caribbean Business Report (CBR) by the airline.
'Air Canada has been serving Jamaica for 62 years. Over that time, Jamaica and Canada have built close ties due to business connections, by having families living in both countries and through a vibrant tourism market. Air transport plays a vital role in maintaining these relationships and Air Canada wants to ensure that there is sufficient capacity linking Jamaica and Canada to meet the demand. As a result, we will be increasing our flights to up to five times a week this summer, more than doubling our current level of service,' said Marcel Forget, vice-president, Network Planning at Air Canada."

Montserrat's quiet and charming -- just one thing

MiamiHerald.com: "There's no Ritz-Carlton on this Caribbean outpost, and with the old Vue Pointe Hotel closed down, the Spycalla's two-room guesthouse is typical of the island's remaining lodging options -- small, familial, cozy.

Underwater adventures: Top Caribbean dive sites offer an array of attractions

MiamiHerald.com: "The Caribbean boasts two of the world's longest barrier reefs -- in the Bahamas and off Belize -- a dizzying array of shipwrecks, and healthy reefs that in many places have benefited from marine park protection for years. Add in sunken ocean caves, aka blue holes, and some jaw-dropping walls, and the deep blue doesn't get more enticing.

Luckily in the Caribbean, ``deep'' also doesn't have to mean better. There are a plethora of dive sites that start a mere 20 feet or so underwater and run to 100-plus feet below."
