Joy is when you have no notion of time. When the heart beats faster. When the adrenaline pumps and when the laughter endlessly continues. Cuba and the Dominican Republic provide happiness.

Nothing is as effective as a FAM trip when it comes to marketing a destination. For that reason, we have organized two MEGA FAMs in recent months – one in Cuba under the motto #letsincentive and the other in the Dominican Republic under the motto #gotreasurehunt.
