Delta Vacations Top 10 Caribbean Vacation Destinations for 2014

“These destinations are growing for a number of reasons,” said Caldwell. “However, the key is that they are all well-served by Delta Air Lines from cities across the U.S. and Canada. This gives travel agents more flexibility and more value when creating air and hotel vacation packages for their clients.”

The vacation destinations on the list are also experiencing sustained growth because of increases in room capacity and improvements in infrastructure, such as the recently completed San Pedro de Macoris-La Romana highway, which connects Santo Domingo with La Romana and La Romana with Punta Cana with trips times of less than one hour for each leg.

Despite the rapid pace of growth during the past five years, these destinations continue to represent huge opportunities for travel agents to not only provide great value, but also to create unforgettable vacations for their clients. These include opportunities for romantic getaways, luxury spa retreats, soft-adventure and eco-tourism activities, and all-inclusive family vacations.
 
In cooperation with Delta Air Lines, Delta Vacations brings its travel agent partners and their clients superior levels of service, the lowest airfares on Delta, more ways to earn award travel, and a lowest price guarantee for their vacation packages.
