Welcome to this month’s edition of Caribbean Connection, a monthly e-magazine from go! Destination Marketing created expressly for travel agents.

A couple of months ago I had the pleasure of staying at the newly-renovated The Frenchman’s Reef & Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort. There’s been more than a garden variety reno at this St. Thomas icon – the effort could more accurately be characterized as a rethink, with a whole new coolness factor being on display. In this issue of Caribbean Connection, Melanie Reffes provides a detailed look at the resort. This issue also highlights feedback from agents who participated in an Anguilla fam. We’d like to do more stories like these, but we need you to kick in with your experiences. If you have feedback or story ideas, reach out to me at markrogers222777@hotmail.com.

If you’re in the mood for some light entertainment with a Jamaica setting, check out the 1989 movie, The Mighty Quinn. It stars a super-cool Denzel Washington and a raggedy-ass Robert Townsend. Denzel plays a police chief who tries to help his childhood friend (played by Townsend) after he becomes a murder suspect. Most of the outdoor scenes were filmed in luscious Port Antonio. Watch video.
