As a freelance travel journalist I have the privilege of traveling around the world on assignment. Here are some of the articles I’ve written for various publications about my travels throughout the Caribbean, which includes the Barbados, Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Jamaica and St. Lucia.

TravelPulse/ The Bahamas: A Healthy Stay At Breezes Resort & Spa Bahamas
A stay at Breezes Bahamas means you’re going to be entertained from sun up to sun down, and well after. Once the sun sets, the fun gets started with live entertainment including dance performances, comedy and talent shows and signing. Also on the property is the Hurricanes Nightclub, for anyone who wants to dance all night long. For those interested in getting off the Breeze Bahamas property, the town of Nassau is easily accessible by bus.

NYLON/ Barbados: MEET THE FASHION DESIGNER BEHIND RIHANNA’S OUTRAGEOUS CROP OVER LOOKS
Crop Over, the annual harvest festival celebrating the end of a successful sugar cane season in Barbados, has been around for a long time. But we can thank Bajan queen of fashion, Rihanna, for bringing it to a wider audience than ever before. For six weeks, Crop Over festivities take over Barbados. From Caribbean music, parades, and fêtes to Bajan food fairs, the rum-fueled fest is a partying marathon of epic proportions.

The Daily Meal/ Dominican Republic: Day Tripping to Dominican Republic’s Most Beautiful Beach, Playa Rincón
Playa Rincón is widely known as one of the top 10 most beautiful beaches in the world. The powdery-white sand stays pristine probably because the only way to get to this remote paradise is by driving on the one rocky road that leads there. Located at the base of Bahía de Rincón, surrounded by coconut palms and mountainous terrain, this beach’s warm water and gentle waves are perfect for splashing around in.
LuxeGetaways/ Dominican Republic: Welcome to the All-Inclusive Barceló Bávaro Beach Resort Complex
Situated on what is known as the “Coconut Coast,” the award-winning resort complex is comprised of two adjacent resorts. While the sheer size of this property is enough to surprise even the most experienced traveler, what is most impressive is the number of attractions, shops, pools, and restaurants that are found on site. Evoking a sense of child-like excitement, the complex is a cross between Disneyworld and a tropical paradise.
The Daily Meal/ Dominican Republic: Celebrity-Status Pampering at the Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts in the Dominican Republic
Upon arrival at each property, guests were greeted with the warmest welcome and refreshed by one of the many tropical drinks offered . After our bags were taken care of, the festivities and pampering began as music started playing and festively dressed dancers gave lively performances to celebrate our arrival! Every initial greeting to one of the resorts made me feel quite special; I certainly have never experienced welcomes like that before.

Travel Weekly/ Jamaica: A grand time at Moon Palace Jamaica Grande
Jamaica is full of laid-back and genuinely happy people who, for the most part, are as thrilled as you are that you’re exploring their tropical paradise. Between stepping off the plane to getting into my arranged transportation to Ocho Rios, I was asked at least three times whether I had been to the island before. Each “no” response elicited an impassioned, warm welcome.

TravelPulse/ St.Lucia: The All-Inclusive Sandals Resort Experience in Saint Lucia
If you’re looking for the ultimate Caribbean getaway, look no further than Saint Lucia in the West Indies. This lush country is known for its geothermal activity, sprawling rainforests, unspoiled coral reefs, exceptionally blue waters, stunning beaches, mountainous backdrops and more. It’s an ideal destination for nearly anyone, whether you fall into the category of honeymooner, beach bum, adrenaline junkie, history nerd or hiker.
