Located on Jamaica’s southern coast, you’ll find one of the island’s most iconic attractions: YS Falls. Surrounded by beautiful tropical gardens, this seven-tiered cascade makes for a scenic backdrop to an unforgettable day in paradise, with several natural pools to help beat the heat.
The island’s southern coast is also home to lush fields of sugarcane and the iconic Appleton Estate Rum distillery. Tour the estate to learn about the island’s history and the distillery process before sampling some of Jamaica’s world-famous rum.
Spend that day at Xcaret Parks, which combines the wild beauty of the Mayan jungle with the fun-filled activities of an amusement park. The eco-adventure oasis has so much to discover from cenotes to underground rivers, animal sanctuaries, delicious local cuisine, a fun-filled water park and more.
Located just off the coast of Cancun, Isla Mujeres is a beautiful island that’s home to tranquil beaches, colourful coral reefs and a charming downtown area. Embark on a catamaran cruise along the coast and discover everything this quiet little island has to offer.
MUD BATHS & HOT SPRINGS
Costa Rica offers plenty of opportunities to create unique memories, none more special than basking in a therapeutic mud bath and thermal hot spring at the dormant Miravalles Volcano. It’s perfect for pre and post-wedding relaxation and a great way to connect with loved ones.
Check something exhilarating off your bucket list during your destination wedding week. You can zipline through the lush rainforests of Costa Rica, keeping an eye out for some of the exotic species that call the area home like sloths and monkeys.
The Dominican Republic’s diverse landscape makes for incredible sightseeing. Take in sweeping views of the varied countryside, from lush jungles to rolling hills, local plantations and charming villages on an exciting Jeep safari adventure.
Spend the day on your own private island off the coast of the Dominican at Saona Island. You’ll set sail on a catamaran tour with an open bar on board to the secluded island that’s home to pristine shores, an exclusive beach club and crystal-clear waters.
No trip to Cuba is complete without a visit to the capital city of Havana. Day trips are available to the iconic city from across the island, where you can spend the day strolling along cobblestone streets, admiring historic buildings and riding in the back of a classic American car.
BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB
Dance the night away with a Cuban mojito or daiquiri in hand to the sounds of the Buena Vista Social Club. Step back into Cuba’s Golden Age of Music as you listen to live performances from this Grammy-nominated band playing a mix of Latin styles like salsa, bolero, rumba and more.
