Panama Tour

Endorsed By: David and Jill
Just a note about our trip to Panama. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Can't say enough good things about Caravan. Our guide was excellent and the overall service from Caravan was wonderful. The canal was definitely the highlight, but we also had a great time just laying around the beach at the Playa Bonita. Thanks again for your great advice and great service. We'll get back with you one of these days to plan the next adventure.

Occidental Resort Cozumel

Endorsed By: Tim & Barbie
We had a great trip to Cozumel and the stay at the Occidental Resort! Rooms, Staff, Beach, all outstanding. It seems that they have improved their game in the food department from the last time we were there. The total score for me was 4 stars and for the money, a great value. I just can't get enough diving in. Ready to go back in March. Thanks for all you do!

Valentin Imperial Riviera Maya

Endorsed By: Nolan
Thanks for checking in! We had an absolute blast. Obviously, things were slightly different traveling to and from (but that was out of everyone’s control). Overall the Valentin Imperial Riviera Maya hit a lot of likes for us. I want to say thank you for the opportunity and the options that we received. I believe that this is something we would return to in the future.

Thank you for all of the work you did getting everything set up for our January destination wedding in Jamaica!

Aruba was great! Enjoyed the Riu. The resort and food were great! The weather was amazing. We left the resort almost every day and got to see Aruba!

Galley Bay Resort in Antigua

Endorsed By: Susan S
Just thought I would let you know that our trip to Antigua was fantastic!! Galley Bay Resort was beyond expectations and everything was top notch!! Some of the specialties were the fresh cut flowers the staff decorated a gazebo with so our daughter's boyfriend could propose and the night the cooks prepared the fish we caught earlier in the day! It truly was an excellent choice in resorts! Thank you for your help in making it happen!
