With thousands of beautiful islands and a long mainland coast, the Caribbean is a vast area spanning a million square miles.

With Simon's characteristic insight, humour and warmth, the series promises to bring to life the unique stories and beautiful landscapes of the Caribbean.

[edit] Hispaniola

The adventurer travels around the islands and mainland coast of the Caribbean Sea, beginning on Hispaniola. He joins the Dominican Republic police's anti-narcotics division, before crossing the border to Haiti to see the notorious tented slums of Cite Soleil, while also discovering a vibrant, colourful and thriving side to the country. He ends this leg of his journey in Puerto Rico, an archipelago that is a territory of the United States, and examines the legacy of bombing and weapons testing on the island of Vieques.

[edit] Barbados

Simon meets the owner of a traditional wooden house in Barbados who has turned down millions of dollars from luxury property developers, then encounters marijuana growers on the volcanic island of St Vincent hoping that the drug will soon be decriminalised. On the South American mainland, Simon examines the mismanagement of Venezuela's natural resources, before crossing into Colombia, where he spends time with the Kogi - an indigenous people who have maintained their traditional forest lifestyle.

[edit] Nicaragua

Simon begins the last leg of his journey in Nicaragua and visits the Rama-Kriol people, who face losing their ancestral homes due to the construction of a new transoceanic waterway. Simon then discovers Hondurans living in the grip of some of the most violent criminal gangs in the world, with San Pedro Sula having the highest murder rate of any city on the planet. His journey ends in Jamaica, where he spends time with young people who have rejected gang life, offering a model of hope for future generations.
