Who are we?

Modern Travel Planners

Caribbean Groups is the group travel division of our full-service specialty travel agency, The Journey Group. We have specialized in group travel to the Caribbean & Mexico since 2000. Our travel consultants are able to assist with every type of group… meetings and incentive travel, destination weddings, multi-generational family reunions, corporate retreats, bachelor and social gatherings.

Let’s face it; in today’s overstimulated world of technology, it is difficult to plan a trip for 1, much less 101. We’ve got you covered. We’ve been booking group travel to the Caribbean, Mexico, and Central America for over 18 years. That’s a long time in the travel industry. We know what works and what doesn’t. We’ve streamlined the process to be as simple as possible. You may hire us as location consultant or a full-service travel firm. You may choose to have our company be the point of contact for your group members, or use a group leader of your own.

Through the years, we have built personal relationships with all of the hotels we recommend. In an effort to only sell what we know, our travel consultants stay at every property we recommend. We convey our clients special requests to the staff member on property we know will expedite the consideration.


We encourage our clients to think outside the box when selecting the perfect location for their event. Why not impress your guests with something unique and extraordinary? Dream big and let us do the rest. We pull our suggestions from a long list of proven successes and what is actually feasible in a foreign location.


By staying up-to-date on industry trends we are able to provide our clients with swift and spot-on answers to any question they might have. We only sell what we know. By focusing solely on the Caribbean and surrounding tropical locales, we have in-depth local knowledge of what’s happening in the region. This ensures our clients make the most informed decisions possible.
