The area’s natural attractions are numerous, thanks to Macapá’s Amazon location.

The capital of the State of Amazonas, the belle époque splendor of Manaus is still evident in the graceful mansions and the Teatro Amazonas opera house.

8 AM to 5 PM

The rich aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and other spices hovers over the fertile, volcanic hills of Grenada. Often called the Spice Island, Grenada has a lot more to offer then just spices. St. George's, the picturesque, small capital with terraces of pale, color-washed houses and cheerful red roofs, has long enjoyed the reputation of having the prettiest harbor in the Caribbean. Established in 1705 by French settlers, who called it Fort Royal, much of the town's present-day charm results from the blend of two colonial cultures, which are reflected in typical 18th-century French provincial houses and fine examples of English Georgian architecture. The mountainous interior rises from a generally rugged coast, which in part is blessed with dazzling white beaches. As the trade winds rustle palms on idyllic beaches, they carry hints of spice that entice you to discover the Spice Island.

November 15 - Pointe-À-Pitre, Grande-Terre, Guadeloupe

8 AM to 5 PM

Pointe-à-Pitre, Guadeloupe’s largest city, is situated on a limestone plateau on the island of Grande-Terre. Visitors enjoy strolling the narrow lanes along the waterfront or shopping the colorful market stalls of the Marché Couvert.

This mountainous island is one of the loveliest stretches of land in the Caribbean, and its former pirate haunts, Danish relics and picturesque old buildings are constant reminders of St. Thomas' exotic history.
