Beyond the Destination Wedding: Exciting Excursions

Tropical rainforest tour in Montego Bay, Jamaica

This excursion takes you to the heart of the tropical rainforest. Journey through the villages that dot the coastline. Go on a boat ride along the Black River, where you’ll admire exotic birds, plants and wildlife—such as the endangered American crocodile. Then, it’s off to the YS Falls for lush scenery and a refreshing swim.

Saona Island in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Sail aboard a catamaran to Saona Island at the Parque Nacional del Este. After a dip in the natural pool and a swim in some of the Caribbean’s most beautiful beaches, enjoy dancing lessons on board.

Archaeological visit in Cancun, Mexico

Adventure awaits at every turn: Marvel at ruins in Tulum, explore the longest underground river in the world (recommended by National Geographic experts), ride through the jungle in an all-terrain vehicle, rappel down into a cenote, cool off in a natural pool, and more.

Historic tour in Varadero, Cuba

Go on a guided tour of Havana’s historic city centre, declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. Discover its bustling squares, colourful architecture, captivating monuments and museums, as well as its countless secrets.

Visiting a colonial village in Cayo Santa Maria, Cuba

Discover Remedios, a charming 16th-century colonial village. Head to historic Santa Clara, where you’ll visit the Che Guevara Museum and Revolution Square. The tour includes a ride on a steam train and a visit to an authentic cigar factory.

Visit the Los Haitis National Park in Samana, Dominican Republic

Take a boat across Samana Bay to Los Haitises National Park. There, you’ll admire rock formations, mangroves, islets and exotic birds. After trekking through a pair of spectacular caves, savour a traditional lunch and lounge on the Cayo Levantado beach.

Crystal caves in Cancun, Mexico

Plunge into the crystal caves of Rio Secreto, where our planet’s history is engraved in countless stalactites and stalagmites. Swimming through the underground river’s fresh, crystalline waters is an experience you won’t soon forget.

Visit coffee and cocoa plantations in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Visit a typical home for a glimpse of everyday life in the Dominican Republic. Then, continue to coffee and cocoa plantations. After a horseback ride, you’ll enjoy a walk through a sugar cane field and get a firsthand look at how some of the world’s finest cigars are made. Cap your day of adventure at a private beach club on picturesque Macao Beach.
