“MotoCaribe was founded in 2007 on a simple premise that guides all we do today: to offer all riders worldwide the greatest value on the planet in supported, exotic motorcycle tours, period.
We do much more than ride. We adventure.”
-Robert Cooper, Founder
Being a travel agent and having worked in this business for 20 years enabled us to take many fabulous vacations all over the world…however I must say I entered this vacation with more than a bit of trepidation…let’s see.
This vacation had everything we needed we were able to fulfill our passion of riding a great bike in an exotic location through winding mountain roads as well as along turquoise beaches.
The MotoCaribe team are the best and we would highly recommend this to anyone wanting a truly unique experience…it is not for the faint of heart but what is better than an adventure awaiting you at every turn.
