Simon Reeve's Caribbean
(Part 1 of 3) Simon Reeve explores the Caribbean Sea in this new series. He begins his journey in the Dominican Republic, a tourist hotspot, and Haiti, the poorest country in the western hemisphere.
The Caribbean has some of the most exotic and enticing locations on earth. It is also crammed full of history, conflict, culture, adventure, wildlife, glamour and colourful characters. Journalist Simon Reeve’s journey around the Caribbean will take him from the slums of Haiti to luxury offshore tax havens; from the beaches of Barbados to the Venezuelan oil fields; from the jungles of Costa Rica to the drug war in Honduras and from the coral reefs of Belize to a cricket match in Jamaica. Simon begins his journey around the Caribbean on the island of Hispaniola and its two very different countries - the Dominican Republic, a tourist hotspot, and Haiti, the poorest country in the western hemisphere. He ends this first leg on Puerto Rico, a Caribbean island that is practically America's 51st state. (S.1,Ep.1) (From the UK) (Documentary) PG CC
