Volunteer in Jamaica

“Going local” is something we covet in leisure travel nowadays, but what does it really mean? Eating local cuisine, exploring the local culture, using the local currency…but how about getting a glimpse inside the real Jamaica by volunteering to help improve the condition of a local community in two key areas: education and health?

Volunteering in Jamaica provides visitors an opportunity to truly integrate into the local neighborhoods and develop relationships with residents. Whether supporting a reading program or helping farmers for a day to plant and harvest crops, there are a host of flexible activities for travelers to choose from. For visitors traveling for leisure, most hotels and resorts are aligned with community programs through which visitors can conveniently schedule a volunteer activity during their vacation. Feel free to browse our projects and contact the respective organizations to volunteer for a month, a week, a day or even a few hours on-island.

As a visitor to Jamaica there are many ways you can give back and make a difference. Before arriving, check out the programs available through your hotel of choice, such as book drives, community visits and any ongoing projects. Some hotels and foundations also participate in Pack for a Purpose which helps travellers make a meaningful contribution to the destinations they visit. Be sure to also stop by our website for information on volunteering opportunities in Jamaica. See our blog feature for more details.

While our Jamaican people will surely benefit from your assistance, we hope that you take home with you an experience of a lifetime, and share the celebrated Jamaican spirit and warmth with your friends and family.

Give back this fall and be a part of a Luxury Included® Vacation Plus (LIV+) Events experience with Island Impact at Beaches Ocho RiosBeaches Resorts and Sandals Foundation will be embarking on a variety of voluntourism projects including Reading Road Trip, Turtle Nesting, Guided Marine Sanctuary Tour, and International Coastal Cleanup. Help us make a difference and contribute to the local community. Find out you can participate here.

The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection to Launch in 2019

A new ultra-luxury, small-ship venture is on the horizon. In late 2019, The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, a new luxury yachting and cruising brand, will launch with the first of three 298-passenger ultra-luxury yachts. A second yacht will set sail in the first quarter of 2021, a third in early 2022.

The Ritz-Carlton will provide luxury hospitality service under a long-term operating agreement. General reservations will open in May 2018.

The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection will have a distinctive personality and the vessels are sure to be true stand outs in some of the most glamorous ports around the world.  This unique combination of yachting and cruising will usher in a new way of luxury travel for guests seeking to discover the world in a relaxed, casually elegant and comfortable atmosphere with the highest level of personalized service.

Look for itineraries that combine the lifestyle of The Ritz-Carlton’s luxury resorts and the casual freedom of a yachting vacation. The first ship’s itineraries are expected to be seven- to 10-day voyages and mostly point-to-point.

The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection 623-foot-long vessels will be able to call at ports that larger ships can’t. The first ship, depending on the season, is expected to cruise the Mediterranean, northern Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America.

Whether the yacht is calling at Capri or Portofino in Italy, St. Barths in the Caribbean or the old town of Cartagena, the new brand says its guests will enjoy a relaxed pace that includes both overnight and day-time ports of call and a uniquely curated destination experience.

A Little Taste of Bolivia

Posted By : travelisswell/ 34 0

We’d like to offers a small insight of the breathtaking country BOLIVIA.

Impressive icebound peaks and high-altitude deserts of the Andes, rainforests and savannahs of the Amazon basin, Bolivia offers travelers stunning scenery, legendary landmarks and a indigenous heritage.

Where to Go:

Spend a few days in the fascinating city of La Paz, which combines a high-altitude setting with a blend of traditional indigenous and modern urban cultures. La Paz is also close to Lago Titicaca, the massive azure lake close to the Peruvian border. The best start for your adventurous Amazon visit is the town of Rurrenabaque, close to the rainforests of Parque Nacional Madidi and the wildlife-rich Río Yacuma.  And of course do not miss Uyuni! A region of high-altitude deserts and half-frozen, mineral-stained lakes, populated by wild flamingos. And this is just the beginning.

Bolivia surprises with unique and barely-visited landscapes and cultures.
This country offers their travelers everything that is considered most exotic and mysterious about South America.

A country of great beauty, stunning landscapes, and unique attractions. A country with the highest capital city in the world, the largest salt flats in the world, mountains, jungles, lakes, and everything else in between.

Stretching from the majestic icebound peaks and bleak high-altitude deserts of the Andes to the exuberant rainforests and vast savannahs of the Amazon basin, Bolivia embraces an astonishing range of landscapes and climates. This mystical terrain boasts scores of breathtaking attractions including stark otherworldly salt pans, ancient Inca trails and towering volcanic peaks. Landlocked at the remote heart of South America, Bolivia rewards the adventurous travelers and encompasses everything that outsiders find most exotic and mysterious about the continent.
