A Taste of our Beautiful World July 18, 2022

At Caribtours, we think the recipe for the perfect holiday should be a generous helping of sun-soaked beaches, a dash of decadent dining, and an abundance of memories to take away. Often some of the most unforgettable experiences are ones had sitting around a dinner table, sharing a delicious gourmet dinner experience with loved ones in sublime surroundings. 

Great food is always an integral part of any trip away, so whether you’re enjoying a fresh seafood luncheon at one of our beach resorts in Antigua, or savouring a local delicacy in Mexico, our hotels’ chefs promise mouth-watering cuisines that offer a taste of luxury in every bite, all best enjoyed with beautiful views.

We’ve travelled to some of the world’s most renowned resorts and hotels, and we can tell you that throughout our travels, the food we’ve sampled has always greatly surpassed our expectations and always adds to the holiday experience. Here is a selection of our favourite culinary destinations...
