This edition, presented by Penny Junor , includes insider reports on three very different destinations in the Caribbean.
Plus a guide to choosing the right island for different types of holidays.
Amanda Redman , recently seen in the BBC1 detective drama Beck, heads for Puerto Rico, which has been described as "rather like Cuba, but the plumbing works". From the capital San Juan she travels to the island's interior, checkingoutthe local cultural offerings.
Simon Calder , travel editor of The
Independent, discovers that even in the increasingly popular Caribbean it is still possible to get away from it all, on lesser-known islands such as Dominica.
He finds that tropical rainforest treks or hidden inns and hotels offer an alternative to lying on the beach.
And, on his first trip to the islands, comedian Arthur Smith flies to Antigua which, it is claimed, has 365 beaches.
