WHO WE ARE
I am the owner of Karlene’s Caribbean Travel. I am also a Mom to twin boys and a daughter. I really enjoy traveling and decided when I was not traveling I wanted to help others plan a perfect vacation. I started my business in February 2003 as a hobby because I enjoyed helping others plan their travel but eventually it became full time for me. My “day job” went away and my “fun job” took over!
My first cruise was in 2000 and I instantly loved it. Since then I have taken 12 additional cruises with most of the major cruise lines. I have also taken all-inclusive vacations to Cancun, Mexico, Nassau, Bahamas, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
Each year I attend a seminar that allows me to make personal connections with the suppliers. If we need something out of the ordinary I have a person to contact to get it done. I have also visited Jamaica through the Jamaican Tourism Board where we attended the Jamaican Bridal Expo and explored many resorts. It was an amazing learning experience! This year I hope to attend a Familiarization trip to Oahu, Hawaii.
I specialize in the Caribbean because I have visited many of the Islands which gives me the personal knowledge of many popular vacation destinations. Each year my goal is to experience new destinations; if I haven't been there I want to go! I love exploring new places. I also handle a lot of Disney.
