Bond with your destination wedding: party over a leisurely dip in a natural pool or an exhilarating glide through crocodile-inhabited waters. From relaxing day trips to exciting adventures, we have selected the best group-friendly excursions to ensure that everyone has a fabulous vacation, filled with authentic experiences and precious memories.

Beyond the Destination Wedding: Exciting Excursions

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.

Discover Tour in Varadero, Cuba

Travel by Jeep through sugarcane fields and villages and sail the Canimar River. Then drive through the colonial city of Matanzas before going for a swim in the crystalline waters of the Saturno Cave.

Cultural excursion at a destination wedding

Coffee Experience in Huatulco, Mexico

Visit downtown Pochutla, its church and market. Then head to Finca El Pacifico, a coffee plantation in the mountains for a tasting, a hike and to see how coffee beans are separated, dried and roasted.

Viva Tequila in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

See how tequila is made at the Viva Tequila Museum. Then enjoy a show that blends dance and Mexican history, and showcases the folklore of the Jalisco state through mariachi and performances by Mexican cowboys.

Flavours of Saint Lucia in Gros Islet, Saint Lucia

Immerse yourself in the local flavours as you discover the exotic flowers of Greenwood Terrace and a traditional herb garden, and learn how to make coconut oil and Saint Lucian rum punch before joining a hands-on cooking demonstration.

Spectacular Cuba in Cayo Coco, Cuba

Delight in local art made from pure silver at a gallery, before gliding through Cayo Coco’s mangroves. A horse-and-buggy ride in neighbouring Morón and a visit to a crocodile farm will wrap up this special destination wedding experience.

Nature excursion at a destination wedding

Waterfalls Summer Day in Liberia, Costa Rica

Explore the spectacular waterfalls of the Guanacaste province. Our first stop: Llanos de Cortés, surrounded by lush forest. Then it’s off  to the picturesque waterfalls at the Rincón de la Vieja National Park, before heading to La Perla, an oasis with sand.

Black River Safari, Ys Falls & Appleton Rum Tour in Montego Bay, Jamaica

Catch a glimpse of the American crocodile as you glide along Jamaica’s longest river. Enjoy a romantic dip — this is a destination wedding, after all! — in the YS Falls before touring the famous Appleton Rum Estate and tasting one of Jamaica’s finest rums.
