Last week Island Routes Caribbean Adventure Tours celebrated its first anniversary with a roster of amazing excursions, industry recognitions, a new outpost, and big plans for the coming year. This dynamic company hit the ground running in Jamaica last June and to date has sales of over 150,000 remarkable Caribbean experiences and operates 24 retail locations in five Caribbean destinations, including their brand new outpost in Providenciales, the Turks & Caicos Islands.

“What a fantastic, eventful year it’s been for everyone at Island Routes. Sharing our vision of the authentic Caribbean – vibrant cultures and natural wonders - with visitors, and seeing it already taking root in five diverse destinations is a real thrill,” says Dominique Peterkin, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Island Routes Caribbean Adventure Tours.
