Everything You Need to Know Before Your Family Holiday in the Caribbean

The holiday season is right around the corner, which means it’s time to start planning that long-awaited family getaway. And what better place to create lifelong memories than the beautiful island of Dominica in the Caribbean? Located where the city, reef and rainforest converge, Fort Young Hotel & Dive Resort is the perfect home base for your family’s Caribbean adventure. Here’s everything you need to know before booking your holiday stay. 

New Flights Make Getting to Dominica Easier Than Ever

Reaching Dominica from your home airport just got even easier. Now through August 15, 2024, Silver Airways will be operating flights six days weekly, Monday through Saturday, directly from Puerto Rico to Dominica. This opens the island to Silver Airways’ network of codeshare partners, including major carriers like American, Delta and United, operating flights from cities across the US — offering even more reason to retreat south for the winter with your family.

Fort Young’s Newly Reimagined Property Adds Style and Amenities

Next month, Fort Young Hotel & Dive Resort will unveil a full reimagination just in time for the holidays, with new amenities designed to enhance your Caribbean escape. Sweat with ocean views at the new fitness center, unwind in the historic barracks lounge, grab pastries in the stone-walled café, discover art in the original oven gallery and so much more. With this exciting amenity expansion, Fort Young promises both comfort and heritage for an unforgettable vacation.

Eco-Friendly Resort Maintains Green Globe Certification

As of just recently, Fort Young Hotel & Dive Resort has been recertified with the prestigious Green Globe Certification for the second year in a row. This achievement solidifies our commitment to sustainability and eco-conscious tourism, making it the second property in Dominica — shared with our sister property, Secret Bay — to attain this recognition. By implementing a zero-waste approach, educating guests and staff on responsible waste disposal and more, Fort Young offers a unique opportunity to embark on a much-needed holiday and feel good about it.

With convenient air access, expanded amenities, an eco-conscious approach and big holiday deals, Fort Young Hotel & Dive Resort is the ultimate destination for an unforgettable Caribbean family vacation this holiday season. Book your stay today
