Caribbean, Anguilla caters to those seeking a luxurious getaway, although there
are places to stay and things to do that are relatively inexpensive. Most well-known
for its powdery-white beaches and the turquoise-colored waters that surround it,
Anguilla offers amazing views and gorgeous weather.

a short plane ride to the island from Puerto Rico or neighboring St. Marten. The
snorkeling and scuba diving in Anguilla is said to be some of the best in the
world, so enjoy!
