Congratulations to all of the winners! With more than 25,000 votes cast over the course of a month, some of the voting was remarkably close. Old San Juan, for example, edged out another great Puerto Rico attraction, the Bioluminescent Bay in Vieques, by just 12 votes, and Altos de Chavon in the Dominican Republic by just 17 votes.

Island Windjammers and Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines each received more than 2,000 votes, but when the tallying was complete the small, tall-ship cruise company beat out Royal Caribbean and its mega-ships by a 52% to 38% margin.

Curacao was the biggest vote-getter in the entire contest, receiving 5,288 votes as best destination to beat out runner-up Trinidad & Tobago. Seven Stars Resort ran away with the Favorite Caribbean Resort award, getting 62% of the votes cast.

Curacao is a great island with a lot to do. Wonderful beaches with crystal water, great food and people. Much more then just a beach.
