I am the owner of Karlene’s Caribbean Travel. I am also a Mom to twin boys and a baby girl. 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 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 my honeymoon in 2000 and I instantly loved it. Since then I have taken 10 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!
I specialize in the Caribbean because I have visited many of the Islands which gives me the personal knowledge of many popular vacation destinations. My goal is to visit many other destinations in the world to increase my personal knowledge to add to my general knowledge of those locations.
