Gulf of Mexico

Before Jimmy Buffett made it big as a recording artist, you could find him in New Orleans busking for tourists. Born in Pascagoula, Mississippi and raised in Mobile, Alabama, the musician and writer drew a lot of inspiration from life in the Gulf of Mexico. With Margaritaville Adventures, fans can retrace Buffett’s early life on the "Creola in My Soul-a" tour. The eight-day Gulf Coast road trip features stops in Biloxi, Mobile, Pensacola Beach and New Orleans.


Buffett’s songs have been heavily influenced by the Caribbean--most infamously Jamaica. Fans and cruisers can "come back, come back, back to Jamaica" and enjoy four different Margaritaville day resorts conveniently located close to popular cruise ports: Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, Falmouth and Negril. These beachfront resorts feature everything you need for a perfect day in the sun, from thrilling aqua parks to relaxing cabanas.


Enjoy a slice of island paradise right in Central Florida at Margaritaville Resort Orlando. The brand-new resort is perfect for families as the property offers complimentary transportation to Orlando’s top theme parks. And later this year, the resort will open Island H2O Live! water park. The 12-acre, immersive park will feature more than 20 water attractions and experiences. For total relaxation, head to the Fins Up Beach Club for serene lagoon-style pools and a soft-sand beach.

Key West

Buffett’s sailing stint in Key West inspired many of the top hits that helped him create the beach bum brand he is now world famous for. Diehard fans should book the "Lost Shaker of Salt" tour with Margarita Adventures. The eight-day road trip down the Florida Keys includes some of Buffett’s old haunts as well as a stay at the Margaritaville Resort in Key West.

At Sea

On select Norwegian Cruise Line ships, cruisers can experience Margaritaville in the middle of the ocean at the 5 O’Clock Somewhere Bar. Pun-tastic and lyric-inspired menu items include "Boat Drinks," "frozen concoctions," and a "Who’s to Blame?" margarita.

Grand Cayman

Located on the famous Seven-Mile Beach, Margaritaville Resort Grand Cayman is the perfect spot for fans who want to experience sailing just like the "Son of a Son of a Sailor." The resort features an on-site Red Sail Sports Desk where guests can charter a luxury catamaran for a sunset sail or private snorkel trip.


If you think you’ve got "a touch of island fever," get ready for the brand new Margaritaville Resort in Nassau, Bahamas. The luxury resort will feature a marina, water park, St. Somewhere Spa as well as family-friendly activities such as a cave aquarium. The new resort will begin opening in phases later this year.


If you like the "funny sounds of parrots squawking," get ready to "head down beside the Caribbean sea" to Margaritaville Resort Belize. The soon-to-open property is on Ambergris Caye--Belize’s largest island--and guests will only be able to reach the tropical oasis by boat.

Costa Rica

Costa Rica is known as one of the best scuba diving locations in the world and the Margaritaville Beach Resort Playa Flamingo is just half a mile away from prime diving. The resort also features the "License to Chill" swim-up pool bar with Buffett-inspired drinks such as the Parakeet Punch and the License to Chill margarita.

St. Thomas

For the diehard Parrothead who wants to vacation in paradise year after year, The Margaritaville Vacation Club by Wyndham has a couple of Jimmy Buffett-inspired properties such as the vacation club in St. Thomas. The resort suites feature a full kitchen outfitted with a "frozen concoction" maker so you’re always ready to waste away in Margaritaville.
