The Caribbean Ranks as Top Destination for Celebratory Events

With its pristine beaches, gorgeous views and sun-drenched homes, it’s no wonder the Caribbean topped the list for where Americans want to celebrate this year, according to a survey commissioned by Airbnb*.

Whether an intimate gathering of close friends and family for a destination wedding, a celebration with your closest buddies before the big day, or a romantic getaway for a milestone anniversary, the Airbnb community in the Caribbean has you covered.

Below are a sampling of Homes in the Caribbean available on Airbnb suited for destination weddings, bachelor and bachelorette parties and anniversary trips to kick-start planning for these momentous occasions.

Destination Weddings

Nearly 60 percent of survey respondents selected the Caribbean as the place they would most want to have a destination wedding. Homes like these are ideal for gathering a group of family and close friends together for an intimate and memorable occasion. Plus they make it easy for couples to dive right into their honeymoons.

Bachelor & Bachelorette Parties

While it’s no surprise that Las Vegas still ranks as the number one location for a bachelor or bachelorette party, the Caribbean was close behind as the second most desired location by survey respondents. Here are some island retreats ideal for a group celebration.

Anniversary Trips

There’s no better way to spend some quality time together than relaxing on your own private beach or having a toast on your private balcony, and two in three people ages 25 to 34 think so too, according to the survey. These respondents ranked the Caribbean as their first choice destination to celebrate an anniversary. Here are some private, romantic Homes perfect for couples.

*Airbnb commissioned a survey of 2,000 individuals across the US ages 18 and over via Pollfish in December 2018 to better understand travel sentiment and plans for the upcoming season.
