Essence of the Caribbean is a niche tour operator offering unique holidays in the Caribbean. Our aim is to give you a real taste of the authentic Caribbean, staying in charming locally-managed accommodation and spending time with our local partners who are keen to share their specialist knowledge and passion.
You’ll stay in small hotels, B&Bs and plantation inns, hand-picked by us – each of these gems not only offer a taste of true Caribbean hospitality but also a beautiful tropical setting and sense of place.
What makes our holidays unique is the inclusion of activities and destination experiences with our local partners – each passionate about their island home and having specific knowledge of a particular subject to share with you. Options include bird-watching, nature and wellness, cooking and rum.
We currently have a choice of holidays in Barbados, Grenada, St Lucia and the Bahamas – with more destinations to follow.
We can tailor-make a holiday just for you or you can join one of our small group trips – ideal for solo travelers.
