Under $100 / Caribbean

Welcome to this island in the French Caribbean, where the volcanic mountains and pristine beaches mix with top-notch French cuisine and unforgettable experiences.

Grab breakfast at the highly recommended bakery, Coup D’Coeur, where you’ll find pastries, quiche and fresh juices. You can have a nice, light breakfast for less than $15.

Head to Habitation Clément for a tour of the rum distillery and plantation, as well as its museum. Samples are provided, and you can also make purchases in the rum shop. However, you don’t have to be a rum lover to enjoy the visit. The history of the spot itself is worthwhile, and the grounds are picturesque, with art sculptures placed throughout. Admission is less than $15.

If sipping rum in the tropics isn’t your pace, enjoy some adventure with a trip to Mont Pelée. The volcano is active, though, so don’t go alone and listen to the safety tips provided when hiking on what to do if the volcano erupts. You can park at the base and hike the rest of the way up; it’s recommended you only go on clear days for the best views of the island.

Of course, you can’t visit the Caribbean without a proper day spent on the beach. One of the favorites on Martinique is Les Salines beach. The water is calm, making it easy for weak swimmers to enjoy the spray, and there are accessible restrooms and showers for convenience. However, the beach can be crowded in the mornings and on weekends, so it’s the perfect spot for catching a few hours of sun in the afternoon.

Enjoy dinner at Le Petibonum, where the casual atmosphere encourages beachside drinks and sips in the shade. The great menu is filled with local seafood. Your food will come in less than $25, but if you want to rent one of the on-site loungers by the water, it’ll be an extra $10, but with a complimentary drink. Visit on certain days of the month for beach parties with a DJ and no cover charge.

Netflix Shows You Can’t Watch in the United States

Netflix has always been stingy when it comes to content. License agreements prevent it from showing its entire catalogue here in the United States. That just means you get new options when you travel overseas. Check out these great shows next time you’re out of the country.

European Commission Outlines Plan to Reopen Europe

People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
