Martinique Vacations

Summary
Martinique Vacation Packages are going to introduce you to some of the finer aspects of the country of Martinique.
Lovers of walking, hiking or just walking will adore northern Martinique for its offerings of mountains that are volcanic by nature (especially the still-smoking Mont Pelee) that are skirted by the rainforests (which are also equally fun to explore). If you head south, you will run right into other kinds of natural beauty; the beaches that are nestled within the bays are a draw for lovers of anything water or beach-related fun. In-between all of this lovely nature stands the capital city of Fort-de-France, where all things urban can be found (eateries, shopping venues/markets and historical points of interest).
You will be very safe while on vacation in Martinique, as the island is very child-friendly/family-oriented and female travellers that are alone do not have to worry about harassment.
Culture
Martinique is an overseas region of France, so you will find the main language of French spoken here, as well as some locals partaking in the Antillean/Martinique Creole. Originally, the first people to step foot on this island were the Arawaks, and then the Caribs in 1201 C.E. The 14th Century brought the Taino people to what is now called Martinique.
Martinique Vacation Packages will give you valuable information, such as there being descendants of enslaved Africans residing in Martinique, as well as other cultures (Chinese, Lebanese and Tamil Indian). The blend of French and Caribbean is very unique in Martinique and boasts a higher standard of living in comparison to other Caribbean places. Musical styles here include the very popular zouk and chouval bwa (folk music).
Exploration
Martinique Vacations are the welcome mat you need to launch the perfect days for adventuring! Beaches upon beaches are available to you (Anse I ‘Etang, Anse de Tartane, Pointe Marin, Anse Michel, La Breche, Plage du Diamant and Plage de Grande Anse are some of the best ones, but there are many more to explore). To learn about the rum making process, take a side trip to the Distillerie Depaz or take in the exhibits at the Musee Departmental d’Archeologie.
For some exciting market chaos, visit the Grand Marche or the Marche des Fermiers (both in Fort-de-France).
Food
Mixing the cuisines of Martinique with Carib Amerindian, French, African and Asian influences, your Vacation Packages in Martinique will surely teach your palette many new flavours to savour. Nationally enjoyed is the main dish called Colombo, which is basically curry chicken, meat or fish that is spiced with masala and tamarind and adding in a side of vegetables (coconut milk, wine, rum and cassava are also incorporated as the sauce).
Rum and pineapple are huge staples when it comes to dessert time, as are other locally-sourced fruits.
Nightlife
The sun may be going down, but Vacations in Martinique just rise up and draw you in! The La Dunette is a laid-back atmosphere, but for a live band, head to the Croisieres Bar. In the Rodney Bay area, you can rock out at Delirious, Tequila Joe’s, or at the Boardwalk.
If you just want to chill out by the beach and take in the atmosphere, head to New Cap in Le Diamant.
