Born with dual citizenship and gypsy bloodlines our founder was meant to wander. Having experienced 3rd world, luxury accommodations and all that lies between she has become the expert on cultural experiences. Working in the tourism industry, off the beaten path travel was always her way. As she brought more friends along she realised so many others want the cultural experience received when staying in little known areas and mingling with the locals.
Whether you are looking for an exclusive custom-built holiday, an intimate group trip with like-minded travelers, a private country manor rental or a river trekking adventure Corcoran Departures will deliver unparalleled service and a cultural experience to remember.
Cariona Corcoran, our founder, actively leads tours and is constantly exploring new cultural experiences for you to revel in.
Susan Lena has a true passion for travel. As she comes home from a destination, she finds herself thinking, “Where can I go next?”
Mrs. Lena has been a professional travel consultant since 2013. Prior to that, she enjoyed planning vacations for families and friends. She has been fortunate enough to travel all over the Caribbean many times (Jamaica, Turks and Caicos, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, Aruba, Barbados, Puerto Rico, and St. Lucia) plus the Bahamas. She has also been to Mexico countless times (Cancun and Puerto Vallarta), as well as Florida (Orlando, St. Pete’s, Tampa, Ft. Lauderdale, and Key West), Napa Valley and Las Vegas. Having spent 30 plus years vacationing on Block Island, Rhode Island has made her a specialist in planning customized vacations on the island. Mrs. Lena has sailed on most of the major cruise lines such as Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Viking and Silversea. Additionally, her travels have extended to Europe on both small and large group travel. To date, she has visited Ireland, England, France Portugal, Spain, Greece and the Netherlands.
One of the things Mrs. Lena enjoys most is getting to know the culture and the people of the places she visited. For example, next November she will be staying at an Airb&b in Paris near Notre Dame. She is looking forward to shopping a local markets and preparing local delicacies. While she has visited the major tourist spots in Paris, this time she wants to focus on the flavors of each neighborhood.
