Ah, the dog days of summer are officially upon us. That means long days, lazy afternoons and, inevitably, Instagram feeds overloaded with beach clubs in Europe. But before you stress-plan a last-minute trip to the Mediterranean, here’s our two cents. Europe is crowded and pricey at this time of year, and hotels in major coastal hubs are effectively sold out. What if there was a better way to enjoy your well-deserved summer trip?

We’re talking about a coastal destination that’s just as sunny and warm as Europe is, but particularly wallet-friendly at this time of year. No, it’s not too good to be true... It’s the Caribbean! 

Low season in the Caribbean promises consistent beach weather and epic savings on otherwise pricey hotels, making a summer trip to the Caribbean one of our ultimate travel hacks. And we’ve unlocked a few top-notch hotel deals for our community to enjoy. Read on for some epic summer savings in the Caribbean, from St. Barths to Jamaica.

We love St. Barths in the summer, because the island – which is usually crowded with jetsetters fighting over reservations at Nikki Beach – is delightfully at ease. Stay at Le Barthelemy, a boutique oasis that perfectly encapsulates the magic of the island (luxurious suites steps from the sand, impeccable service, effortless French sophistication…. Mais oui!).
