Despite the fact that Central America and the Caribbean area have been conquered and occupied by Spanish, British, French and Dutch colons who imported a lifestyle, a new religion and slavery, very little remains of these subsequent European civilizations in the very soul of this part of the world where everything seems ineluctably linked to the dark strengths of nature which govern the world and rule the universe as well as to all the ancient gods worshipped in the huge pyramid temples, true representations of all the mysterious strengths of nature. Cult of nature was so important and deep that local pre-Colombian civilizations did not hesitate to offer human sacrifices to their gods to keep them happy and ask for their protection. This is a fact that you do not have to forget all along your travel across Central America and the Caribbean, this land and this sea still belongs to the ancient gods. Do not spoil a magical travel and avoid hotel reservations, choose a vacation rental for your holiday such as a villa on the sea with swimming pool or a luxury condo with terrace on the sea.
French Antilles are a very interesting cocktail of French “insouciance” and Vaudo local myths.
