The Grad Trip Experience

Welcome to the best week of your life

Catamaran Cruise
Catamaran Cruise

Hop on an S-Trip! exclusive Catamaran with all of your buds and set sail as we cruise down the beautiful coast. A brief stop to jump in and check out the incredible tropical marine life cools everyone off before hopping back on, turning up the tunes, and dancing all the way back to port.

S-Trip! Central

We take over our own private section of the resort. Not kidding! It’s all for you. If you are ever unsure of what is going on, head on over to S-Trip! central and you’re guaranteed to see tons of other grads having the time of their lives. Your Trip Leader will show you exactly where S-Trip! Central is located when you arrive so you won’t miss a thing.

City Tour

Hop on an S-Trip! shuttle bus and head out to explore the local city. We show you the hot spots and the best attractions, and you’ll even have some time to do some shopping at a market, and grab a bite to eat from a local eatery.

Grad Trip Resort

This is your home in paradise for the next week! There is so much to see and do you’ll wish for more time in the day. S-Trip! staff will be located all over the resort to show you around, and make sure you’re having the best time all week long. Get out there and explore!

Info Desk
Info Desk

Usually located in the front lobby. This is where you’ll find our staff from morning til you go to sleep. Need to know where the beach is? We got you covered. When does the buffet close? All over it. What time do you need to get up for volunteer tomorrow? We got your back. What is the theme of the night event tonight? Pshhhh, that’s easy! You’ll also sign in with your Trip Leader 3 times a day at the info desk to make sure you’re having the best time possible.

Night Events
Night Events

Get ready for some incredible themed night events all week like Tight N’ Bright, and Graffiti. These are S-Trip! exclusive for our travelers only, so we can do it our way. These are night events you’ll be talking about with your friends for years to come.

Surf Camp
Surf Camp

This is your opportunity to learn to surf. We guarantee that every rider will get up and ride a wave by the end of the day. Our crew of surf pros are there to help. We’ll even snap a few pics so that you can show off to everyone back home.

The Beach
The Beach

This is paradise! Who doesn’t love the beach. We’ll be running daily games of beach volleyball, soccer, sandcastle building competitions, and much more. Check in with your Trip Leader at the Info Desk to see what is happening each day. Make sure to lather on the sunscreen because it gets pretty toasty on this perfect beach!

The Pool

Cannonball!!! The pool is a Grad Trip hot spot. On one of the days, we will completely take over the pool and throw an exclusive S-Trip! pool party. Our DJ, our music, all day fun in the sun.

Volunteer
Volunteer

This is your chance to make an impact in the community. Each volunteer initiative will be different according to your trip, but this could include helping to build houses for those less fortunate, restoring school’s and community centres, teaching english to other students, or creating more sustainable wildlife habitats. Either way you’ll be making a huge difference to the place that you’re visiting that will last long after you get home.

Zipline
Zipline

This is for the adrenaline junkies out there. Zip from platform to platform through the trees while getting some of the best views of the area. Hold onto your hat because some of these lines get going pretty fast!

Some days feel like they must have 48 hours. How could you possibly do so much in one week? Surf, zipline, volunteer, teach, build, conserve, language lessons, City Tour, catamaran, beach volleyball, Monster Relay, pool party, Tight n’ Bright, Graffiti, Hawaiian Luau, Grad Gala…and so much more. S-Trip! is all about crossing a ton of stuff off your bucket list.

All activities day and night are exclusive to S-Trip! travelers, and staff will be around 24/7 on the resort and at all off resort excursions and night events.

Volunteer Abroad

Make an impact that will last long after you get home

Our first volunteer project in 2010 was orchestrated by students who really wanted to give back to the community. This one idea changed our programs forever and now Volunteer Abroad is offered on every trip. We want to make the world a better place, and so do you. Let’s do it together.
