A New Way to Experience Martinique

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - August 13, 2016

Educational travel company Road Scholar is launching a new learning adventure to Martinique.

The best part? The tour includes free airfare from Boston and New York.

Led by local experts, naturalists and historians, “The Allure of Martinique: A Taste of France in the Caribbean” highlights the island’s unique history and culture.

Participants will learn about the island’s formation, its unique biodiversity and visit the Pagerie Museum, the onetime home of Josephine Bonaparte, Empress of France and wife of Napoleon Bonaparte.

“Many people don’t realize that the Caribbean has much more to offer than just beautiful beaches and sunsets,” says JoAnn Bell, senior vice president of programs at Road Scholar. “Like all of our programs in the Caribbean, Martinique offers participants the high-quality experiential learning that they’ve come to expect with us. With free airfare from Boston and New York, this program is an exceptional value for anyone interested in learning more about this fascinating culture.”

Other highlights include visiting the Domaine d’Emeraude to experience the island’s rainforest; exploring several centuries-old sugar plantations; experiencing La Savane des Esclaves, a re-creation of a “free slave” village; and visiting Le Musée de la Banane to learn about the hundreds of species of the fruit.

The eight-day program traverses the entire island through field trips to a variety of museums and cultural sites.

Prices start at $1,599, including free airfare exclusively from New York and Boston.
