Kick off your New Year’s resolutions by dusting off your wintertime exercise routine and taking it outdoors in the sultry island tropics—snorkel or dive in the Caribbean’s translucent blue waters, hike to the summit of a breathtaking Piton, or jog barefoot on a powder-white sand beach. Then cool off under a waterfall. Calabash Cove’s concierge service will help you assemble a perfect lineup of active fun.
