Be Part Of Island Impact
Join Our Voluntourism Program
Island Routes Caribbean Adventures has teamed up with a number of non-profit organizations to offer extraordinary voluntourism experiences for travelers across the Caribbean. Full-time students who chose to participate can earn up to 10 community service hours for their time. But best of all, the projects chosen all positively impact the local communities in which they operate.
Embark On A
Reading Road Trip
This heartfelt journey is more than just about reading a story; it's about giving children a renewed excitement for learning. Visit a local school, where you'll be paired with a small group of students, ages 5-7 years old, for a morning of 'edu-tainment' focused on improving their reading, listening and comprehension skills. You'll take home humbling memories from the heart and leave behind a lasting impact!
Pack For A Purpose
Island Routes partnered with the Sandals Foundation are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and take supplies for the projects we support in need, you'll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families.

Protect Precious Marine Life
Turtle Watch Program
Together, Island Routes, The Sandals Foundation and local turtle conservation authorities are working to help monitor the turtles to make sure they reach the water safely. Proceeds from this tour helps to benefit the Oracabessa Foundation in their conservation efforts. In 2015 alone, over 21,000 turtles were released, thank you for helping us to preserve our precious marine life.
