We learned by experience, that the gathering of a group of people in the Caribbean leads to the making of a party translating into a FESTIVAL celebrating culture and friendship. We are preparing a menu of exciting activities bringing out the authentic beauty and essence of the Caribbean islands as seen through the eyes of the Caribbean people.
Thirty three Caribbean countries are yours to discover ! Every year will bring a different experience always as
exciting and memorable as previous.
Discover the Caribbean like no one has ever before !
