Tropical Colors of the Caribbean

Flower Power! 

Water Lily - Martinique

The Caribbean region is always in bloom

Some islands offer a profusion of tropical flower color, while others offer a more subdued landscape. 

No matter which island you visit, colorful flora can be found along the road side, in botanical gardens, rain forests, mountain trails, and just about anywhere else . . .
