Welcome to the February 2019 edition of Caribbean Connection, a monthly e-magazine from go! Destination Marketing created expressly for travel agents

This month’s Caribbean Connection features lots of new developments, incluing renovation efforts, increased airlift, destination websites, and family-friendly perks. On our Deals page we have one deal with a very short shelf life: Sonesta Resorts St. Maarten has extended its reopening special, offering up to 45 percent off rates for bookings now through February 28, 2019. If that’s of interest, you’ll have to move fast.

This edition also has a story I wrote for USA Today on James Bond’s footprint in the Caribbean. It’s a fun read.

One more thing. My novella PLUNGE will be published next month, by UK publisher Endeavour Media. It’s a tourism thriller set in the Dominican Republic. You guys might enjoy this one.

If you like what you see in Caribbean Connection, contact us at We can create custom marketing pieces for you at reasonable rates. There are 107,000 travel agents in the U.S. and Canada waiting to hear from you.
