You might be destined for the Caribbean Life if...

1. The sound of waves breaking is like music to your ears. 

2. Your top extracurriculars include swimming, snorkeling and staring at the sea.

3. A wild night out consists of relaxing on the porch, waiting for the sun to set over the sea.

6. You want the sea to be the first thing you see in the morning and the last thing you see at night.

7. You don't get the whole dog vs. cat thing. For you, it's all about the sea turtles.

11. Your perfect lazy weekend consists of lying in bed, listening to the waves crashing just outside your door. 

12. You consider the sea to be the only acceptable means of travel. 

13. As far as landscaping goes, you'll always choose palm trees over pine trees.
