- Bob Marley Week
Bob Marley Week has just ended but there is plenty of time to plan for next year. The birthday of Robert Nesta Marley, the world's most well known reggae superstar, is February 6th.

- Reggae Marathon
You'll have to wait until early December for this annual race.
- Las Terrenas Marathon

The Dominican Republic also has world class polo. I was fortunate enough to take in an event with Nacho Figueras, International Polo Player and Ralph Lauren Polo Model, when I was with a client for their President's Club a couple of months ago.

The Barbados polo open begins on March 13th and there are games every few days until the finals on March 27th.
