Our Experience Planners and Coordinators have explored these islands many times and in some cases, lived on them. So who better to help you plan your trip? Soca Islands currently offers four types of travel experiences in the Caribbean. We can also help you plan leisure and corporate events around these experiences, e.g. team retreats, incentive travel, bachelor/bachelorette parties, birthday parties, honeymoons, engagements, family reunions and other types of celebrations.

What are the costs and how do payments work?

The entire cost of a Soca Islands experience program is broken up into several parts: the initial deposit and a monthly payment that is paid leading up to the start of your experience. For our remote work experiences, the monthly payments are made over the course of your program.

  • Initial Deposit
    The down payment is paid when you officially sign up for a Soca Islands experience to secure your spot. When you make this first payment, it shows us your serious commitment to an experience and affords us the confidence to begin booking all of the  arrangements on your behalf.
  • Monthly Payment
    The monthly payment is a fee paid at the beginning of every month up until the cost of your experience is paid off in full.

The initial deposit amount will vary depending on the experience you choose and the monthly payment will depend on the full cost of the experience.

Which methods of payment are accepted if I want to book?
We accept all major credit cards: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover. You can also make your payment using the Zelle Quickpay app. When paying with Zelle Quickpay, use name – Soca Islands and email – [email protected]

When is the deadline to pay my initial deposit?
There is no deadline as such, however there are limited spaces on each trip and prices/deposit amount can increase at any-time without notice. Therefore it is in your best interest to secure your place with us as soon as possible.

How do I pay my installments?
You may login to your SOCA ISLANDS account at any time to make a payment towards your package, or you can send your payments via Zelle Quickpay.
