The Ultimate Group Getaway

World-renowned for their glamorous tropical backdrops, relaxed lifestyle, welcoming ways, and time-honored traditions of exploration and discovery, the Caribbean islands are a dream destination for MICE groups. Easily reached from North America and widely accepting U.S. currency, the countries of the Caribbean, providing first-class hotels, excellent infrastructure and modern conferencing facilities, have a proven track record of success across the MICE spectrum, from global summits to executive retreats. With heritage sites, tantalizing cuisine and spectacular eco-adventures among the unique off-agenda lures, the Caribbean offers groups a true departure from the ordinary.   

In partnership with the Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association, Northstar Meetings Group is pleased to present this dedicated microsite highlighting the unique appeal of 20 leading MICE destinations around the Caribbean, along with the Mexican Caribbean and Costa Rica. For MICE planners, the site provides valuable resources including an exclusive monthly newsletter focused on the Caribbean MICE market, as well as special offers from industry partners and suppliers across the region.

A Note from Northstar Meetings Group

Everyone here at the Northstar Meetings Group sends our thoughts and deepest sympathies to those affected by Hurricane Irma. It has been heartbreaking to watch as so many people and places throughout the Caribbean have faced disruption, devastation and even lost lives. We work very closely with so many of those affected — in much happier circumstances — and offer our continued support during this trying time of recovery and over the lengthy process of rebuilding these wonderful destinations and properties.

We ask any readers seeking to offer help to consider a donation to the American Red Cross or Global Giving. The Caribbean Tourism Organization’s relief fund, which directs all contributions to the ministries of tourism for member states impacted by the hurricane, is another worthy cause. To keep updated on the latest developments, the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association’s Hurricane Center also serves as a valuable resource.

As the full damage to communities throughout the Caribbean is being assessed and recovery begins, we will continue to cover developments closely. We look forward to seeing all these resilient destinations rebuild and welcome guests to experience paradise again soon.

With warmest regards from the entire Northstar Meetings Group content team,

Lori Cioffi
