Fielding's Caribbean

Physician's Money Digest

David Swanson, author of (Fielding; 1997), thinks Trinidad would win any "Caribbean's Best Cultural Experience" award. "And it excels in bird watching," he says. Invited to give his Caribbean's bests for readers, he answers: "Best food, St. Barts. Best night life, Puerto Rico; diving, Bonaire; beaches, Anguilla; shopping St. Martin." Asked the best undiscovered, he replies, "I'd say Bequia, although sometimes that's like saying, which has the worst public relations?"

Tobago has come late on the scene, Swanson says, and may be able to avoid the problems other islands have created, such as the heavy traffic in Martinique and the overdevelopment in St. Thomas.
