Cruising into the tropics after months of careful vacation planning can feel completely surreal. Soaking up all that sun and adventure in the Caribbean often reminds us of how fortunate we are to share the experience and good fortune with our loved ones. But you can also share that sense of good fortune with the local communities and turn a small portion of your next vacation into a volunteer opportunity. Volunteering on vacation is also a wonderful way to give back to the community around you whether in your own home city or while exploring the world.

Of course, a vacation is also about relaxing and having fun. That’s why a shore excursion designed to “give back” incorporates both a sense of adventure with a sense of well-being.

Travelers can choose activities like planting a garden, reading a story to local school children, or preparing lunch at a senior citizen center.

Wondering if volunteering on vacation is right for you? Here are five reasons we think that you’ll love it: Read the rest of this entry »
