The Best Islands In The Caribbean For Bar-Hoppers (PHOTOS)

First Posted: 03/04/11 08:51 AM ET   Updated: 05/25/11 07:35 PM ET

For many travelers, vacation is about spending time with your companions, sleeping, maybe even catching up on reading. For others, it's all about a party.

The Caribbean is a great place to blend the two passions: relax during the day, stay up well past bedtime at night. The islands of the Caribbean have a blend of salsa clubs and fancier affairs, as well as flip-flop beach bars and casual nighttime joints.

Fodors.com put together a list of their favorite beach bars scattered about the Caribbean. While many of the bars look lovely (and who wouldn't want to be on a tropical beach now?), there are so many more that do the trick (just thinking about Le Select in St. Barths screams Caribbean dive bar).

Check out their list below and send us your choice for favorite bars: From beach shacks to dance halls, we want to hear about it!

Aruba: Bring on the Night

Aruba's waterfront bars beckon with great sunset views

The Scene
: They pump up the volume at Aruba's resort bars when the sun sets. Unlike many other islands, nightlife here isn't confined to touristy folkloric shows. In addition to catching nightly entertainment in one of the many casinos, you can slowly savor a drink while the sun dips into the sea, dance to the beat of a local band, bar-hop via a colorful party bus, or simply stroll along a deserted starlit beach. Arubans like to party--the more the merrier--and they usually start celebrating late in the evening.
