News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Tues. May 2, 2023: If you’re looking to venture out to the Caribbean, either island hopping on a cruise or sticking to one location, you’re likely to want some entertainment throughout your journey. Well, there are a lot of options to choose from, and they vary depending on where you’re going. But some things are universal and universally loved, and you can find them amongst the greatest bars and restaurants in the Caribbean.
So, what can you find to entertain you beyond the sun and the cocktails? Take a look at our list to find out.
The Caribbeans are famous for knowing how to get a party started. With the best tunes on offer, it really doesn’t matter if you know the genre, you know the big names, etc. You can simply show up to a venue and enjoy the locals playing with whatever they have handy.
Wander down your nearest strip, and you’re bound to find a pub with a live band and enjoy a night of dancing and singing.
Of course, the Caribbean is made up of a lot of different cultures from different islands, but the best part about that is that you’re going to get something different wherever you go. But the thing they all have in common is the ability to make the listener feel alive.
This is a show where you get to ask the age-old question: is telepathy real ? Modern mentalism is all about reading energy and minds to pull off mind-bending tricks. Less juvenile than the idea of a magician, mentalism involves reaching deep into a person’s mind and extracting the truth. They have abilities like precognition, clairvoyance and telepathy and can demonstrate them to members of the audience. It makes for a shocking and bizarre night out.
They aren’t as common as other acts on a typical holiday strip, like music acts and comedians, but you can ask around to find interesting acts in the area.
Depending on where you go around the Caribbean, you might find yourself enjoying a bottomless brunch with a drag act. Drag artists are essentially modern (better) clowns with better material. It’s not just the outfit that will make you sick with jealousy that they offer, but great stand-up and crowd work, usually with a lip sync performance or maybe even some original music to add to the act.
Get the girls (and guys) together and enjoy an excuse for a cocktail in the morning, as if the sun wasn’t enough of an excuse.
Along the same lines as a mentalist, magicians are much beloved in the Caribbean. They make for a great family-friendly choice on the islands or on your cruise. Pulling off a mix of crazy tricks that a daredevil might only attempt for real and card tricks to entertain. There is a lot of pageantry to it that makes for an entertaining show. It’s a great option to give your kids a bit of entertainment and let them know that magic is still alive.
