About Us

About Us.

MotMot Travel offers tailor-made and small group holidays to the Caribbean islands and surrounding Latin American countries that we know best and are passionate about.

We are an independent company based in the UK and founded in 2004 by Gilbert Bastyra and Vivianne McGrath, a brother and sister team, who were both born and raised in the Caribbean and have travelled widely in the area and Latin America. Gilbert has worked at several resorts in the Caribbean including a stint as General Manager of The Asa Wright Nature Centre in Trinidad.

We have an excellent small team in our office in Northamptonshire, who are available to answer all your initial questions, offer honest advice and help design and arrange your perfect holiday.  Our team in the Caribbean and Central America, will then make sure that all your transfers run smoothly, that advice or assistance is available when needed and your expectations are fulfilled and exceeded while you are on holiday.

We aim to offer you the perfect travel combination of activity and relaxation in beautiful natural environments. Our holidays are ideally suited to bird watchers, nature lovers and all those who wish to travel independently and seek a unique experience away from the crowds, but with first class back up and services. All our suggested itineraries are individually created to achieve the eclectic requirements of our many clients, but remember, these are only suggestions and we will help you find an itinerary that is perfect for you.
