Group Travel Idea: Visit Jamaica’s Coyaba River Gardens and More

by Karen 1. November 2013

Are you hoping to add the Greater Antilles to your group’s travel list this year? If that’s the case, consider chartering a private plane with us and heading for Jamaica. It is home to the Coyaba River Gardens and the Mahoe Falls.

The gardens are located south of Ocho Rios and encompass three serene acres. While your group walks the grounds, listen for the sound of falling water and the resident wildlife. If you are very observant, you may even hear the snapping turtles try and catch a quick meal. Be sure to stop by the manmade pond with the built-in window too. It will give your group an opportunity to watch the island’s koi carp and mullet fish go about their natural business.

The Coyaba River Gardens is not the only attraction onsite. The area is also home to Mahoe Falls. It is 100 feet tall and visitors are welcome to explore it several ways. Adventurous sorts may want to climb it with the aid of a guide. Others may prefer viewing its splendor from above. The viewing area is known as Ysassi Lookout Point. On a clear, Jamaica day, it offers access to some of the most memorable views. Among them are the pristine Caribbean Sea, the gardens and Ocho Rios.

After touring the water gardens and the falls, there is still much to enjoy, including the Arawak Museum. It features a charming Spanish courtyard, snack bar, gift shop and multiple exhibits. The exhibits contain artifacts from the island’s Taino period. It refers to a moment in time when the island was inhabited by members of the Taino tribe. They were a very interesting group of people that knew how to make fairly advanced products like pepper gas and rubber balls.

Of course the above is just a glimpse of the group travel opportunities that exist in Jamaica. To learn more about chartering a private plane to experience them firsthand, please contact us at (877) 535-9624. We are a FAA certified charter airline with a fleet of luxurious aircraft at our disposal.

 

Charter a Private Aircraft to Haiti and Enjoy Natural Wonders

by Karen 20. September 2013

Situated in the Caribbean is the intriguing Republic of Haiti. It is a magnificent destination to visit any time of the year. Perhaps best of all, if you charter a private aircraft from us, you’ll be there in no time. Here’s a look at some of what the magical place has to offer nature lovers:

Pic Macaya National Park

The Pic Macaya National Park is one amazing place to visit in Haiti. It is considered by many to be the last pristine cloud forest in the world. In addition, it is home to rare wildlife and vegetation. Among them are a half dozen species of unusual frogs.

Grotte Marie-Jeanne

Another stunning, natural place to visit in Haiti is the Grotte Marie-Jeanne. It is a multi-level, large cave system that is located in Port-a-Piment. It is believed to have been used by humans on and off for centuries. Today, visitors can take guided tours of the cave system.

Bassins Bleu

If you are still feeling adventurous, a trip to Jacmel City may be in order. Once there, schedule a guided horseback riding or hiking excursion to Bassins Bleu. It is the location of three stunning waterfalls. They are known as Bassin Palmiste, Bassin Yes and Bassin Clair. We’d suggest taking a picnic lunch with you and enjoying the meal al fresco.

Ti Anchorage

Do you prefer your water views accompanied by pristine sand and scrumptious, incredibly fresh seafood? Well then, set your sights on Ti Anchorage. It is one of the more popular beaches located near Jacmel City. It is also a great place to go fishing for monstrous size tuna. When you are finished, be sure to visit one of the area’s restaurants for lunch or dinner.

Citadelle Henri Christophe

Instead of going fishing, would you rather mix history with stunning scenery? If so, try heading towards Cap-Haitien or Milot. Both are near an ancient, mountaintop fortress known as the Citadelle Henri Christophe. It is accessible by foot or horseback. The massive stone fortress still features the remnants of weaponry once used to protect the charming island. It offers stellar views of the surrounding mountains as well.

To charter a private aircraft to these or other fabulous locations, contact us. We’d love to help your group reach its next exotic destination.

Travel Agents - Use Aviation Charters to Grow Your Business

by Admin 25. July 2013

If you're a travel agent specializing in group travel, or if you'd like to expand into group travel, Aviation Charters are the way to make it simple for your clients to get from one place to another.  Miami Air International is a charter-only airline that can fly your group around the world in style and comfort.

As a travel agent, and like any other business professional, you are always looking for ways to generate more revenue. Expanding into group travel is a way to do this. There are many groups that would fit easily into this niche, many in your local area. Some of the groups you might solicit to use this service include:

  • Large businesses traveling to conferences or trade shows.
  • Incentive winners from one business or several grouped together. Offer this to smaller businesses who need sales incentives but may not have the large numbers needed to charter a plane.
  • Leisure travelers from a senior center, a senior residential community, a college alumni association or any other group.
  • Educational travel of students from your local high school, junior college, or university.

These types of groups, as well as many others, could be offered a travel package including the flight, accommodations, and sightseeing customized for interest and activity level. Miami Air has planes that carry as few as 68 persons or as many as 172 persons. That's a flexible size for developing tours that will delight travelers and cater to their particular needs.

Why charter flight instead of scheduled airlines?  Why not? The benefits are so many that you'll wonder why you didn't offer these tours a long time ago. Some of the benefits include:

  • No extra charge for luggage or name changes.
  • Plane-side security check-in on the ramp for private charters. 
  • Custom departure times, at the convenience of your group, can also ensure a convenient arrival time at your destination.
  • Direct Flights.  In most cases, the flight will be direct. Long distances may require fueling stops, but flyers wait on the plane. No disembarking necessary.
  • Meals available in-flight can be standard or customized according to dietary, religious, or gourmet needs.
  • In-flight videos and personal DVD outlets for each traveler.

Contact us today to start planning how to make group travel a major part of your business.  With Miami Air International as your partner, you can create group travel that will dazzle your clients and leave them with memories to last a lifetime.
