Never a dull Caribbean sunset. This one's courtesy of #Curacao.

One of the coolest African leader murals (and of H.I.M. Haile Selassie) I've seen in the Caribbean, aside from the ones in Jamaica–with a chilling background story. Spotted on my tour of Willemstad's historic Otrobanda District with Dushi Walks Curacao. For more details, check out my Lonely Planet article–link temporarily in the BIO. The best part? A solid chunk of tour proceeds go to support local communities–for real. Win-win. #Curacao #Willemstad #DushiWalksCuracao #traveldeeper #Caribbean

Gorgeous architecture, yes, and a UNESCO anniversary this year. But also tons of creativity, inspiring entrepreneurs, and just plain multicultural coolness. This really is the perfect time to explore Willemstad, one of the best preserved Caribbean heritage cities! I tell you how in my latest feature article and photos for @lonelyplanet.

The background looks fake. But I swear, it's real. Beautiful #DominicanRepublic! #PlayaJuanDolio

Sometimes you have to "Check out" so you can check back in, more fierce than ever. #juandolio #dominicanrepublic #caribbean #beautifuldestinations

I love beaches but heritage cities fascinate me even more. #santodomingo #zonacolonialrd #dominicanrepublic

Currently on my writing desk: Guadeloupe Islands. #caribbean #beautifuldestinations #islands #media #caribbeanbeat

As a photographer I'm always snapping photos of other people, but I have so few of myself. Even fewer professional ones. It was time to get a new author photo. Here's one of the top picks from today's shoot. 😬 #media #travel #dominicanrepublic #zonacolonialrd #santodomingo

Creating my weekly YouTube episodes and showing you my favorite things about the DR has become my pastime and break from my daily writing work. Of course it's also to show you a glimpse of the content in my guidebook, Moon Dominican Republic. This week, I take you inside three Museums in the Colonial City, and show you some of the fun merengue dancing from last weekend's free museum day event. For the full episode link, just go to The video is on the home page. Let me know if you love it!

How is tourism doing in the Dominican Republic? As hot as this summer weather! My recap of the DR's annual tourism conference–held this past May in Punta Cana–is in the July/August issue of JAX FAX Magazine. Direct link in the BIO.

One thing is for sure when it comes to Curaçao's free beaches: they're full of character. #playagrandi #curacao #caribbean #beaches #traveldeeper #bbctravel
