Anguilla Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 52%, Anguilla is a place that most of us are fairly sure we've heard of, but it's almost guaranteed that we can't name even one of its top destinations. This is almost a crime when you consider that Anguilla is in reality one of the most sublime Caribbean islands without any of the "window dressing" that other islands seem to insist on for the sake of PlanetHoppers! Take for instance Sombrero Island, arguably one of the Caribbean's best snorkeling destinations that few, if any, seem to have heard of - especially the legions of cruise ship passengers that swarm over the rest of the region's "hotspots" like mice on cheese. While mass commercial tourism hasn't hit the island, it still offers some events that make "those in the know" sit up and take notice. A good example of this is the Tranquility Jazz Festival, which draws top class musicians from around the Caribbean, as well as internationally. Then to top things off, you have some of the most pristine deserted islands to be found anywhere on the planet. Anguilla's outer islands are what most sailing enthusiasts spend most of their time dreaming about - beautiful, deserted, and easily accessible. So, if you're looking for a Caribbean destination with a huge amount to offer - baring tourists - then this is the place that you've been looking for. Did we fail to mention that Anguilla is also a popular tax haven, having no capital gains, estate, profit, or other forms of direct taxation on either individuals or corporations? What more could you possibly want?
