Go! Destination Marketing Caribbean Connection
November 2011
Mark Rogers  

Welcome to this month’s edition of Caribbean Connection, a monthly e-magazine from
go! Destination Marketing created expressly for travel agents.
In the November issue of Caribbean Connection, we showcase the incredible showing Sandals made at this year’s World Travel Awards. We’re also serving a double shot of Melanie Reffes coming at you with a story on Barbados and another on Caribbean honeymoons and romance travel. I’m a huge fan of the late Hunter Thompson and Johnny Depp – check out the trailer for The Rum Diary, based on an early novel by Thompson and starring Depp, set in circa 60s San Juan. If you have feedback or story ideas, reach out to me at
