I sure do! :D

So far I've been to St. Thomas and St. John (USVI), Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Turks and Caicos, Cayman Islands, the Bahamas, St. Maarten, and a bit off to the side - Cozumel (Mexico) and Ambergris Caye (Belize). Can't wait to continue my tour of the Caribbean... On the short list are Aruba, Martinique, St. Lucia, maybe Curacao and Barbados...

Here are some shots to whet your appetite. Let's see yours!

San Cristóbal in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico:

Can't get lost in St. Maarten, either:

Everybody knows Victoria House on Ambergris Caye, Belize:

Pretty much my favorite spot on any beach (again Ambergris Caye):

Fantastic shots, Michael! The first one from Puerto Rico is certainly a very familiar sight to me. 98% of my portfolio would fit on this thread (Puerto Rico shots), but since you mentioned that Curacao and Barbados were next on your list, I'll start with a few shots from both.

Curacao:

Thanks so much, Antonio and also for the pictures. I think you've captured the spirit of these Caribbean spots perfectly. I can't wait - but unfortunately it seems it won't be for a while yet (next year). I'm in Caribbean withdrawal! :(

I've been admiring all your shots from Puerto Rico; San Juan in particular. It seems I might be able to steal away for a few days between Christmas and New Years... The idea was to hang in Viejo San Juan. You'll probably recognize these shots - many in and around there (and San Cristóbal) from my last time there:

Michael,

That's a terrific set of photographs of sights that are very familiar to me. If you are going to be in San Juan during the holidays, drop me a note and we can get together for some shooting or a beer (or both).

Here's three shots from very early this morning in Piñones, Loiza, Puerto Rico. All on the M9P and 24mm 3.8 Elmar M:

Thank you! I figured you'd probably recognize most of them. Unfortunately I had limited time (was on a cruise, boo). Walked from the dock straight through the neighborhoods and up the hill to San Cristóbal... Should've taken a taxi! It looked a lot closer than it was. LOL. A beer sounds great! Will let you know how things turn out.

Beautiful shots around the beach, Antonio! The beach just never gets old. :)

I love the Fla Keys too. Would that count?

Of course! That's where it all starts! :)

I went a couple of times but never really took pictures for various reasons - and it's been over a dozen years now since the last trip even... Man, I need to get back.
