The July/August school vacation is here.

This is a time when many families plan vacations and getaways.

Vacationing in the Caribbean could be a bit cost-prohibitive, particularly if you are looking to stay in a hotel.

With this being traditionally the low season for Caribbean tourism, some islands tend to focus on regional travellers, especially those with a Summer Carnival. As such, some properties offer special rates for Caribbean people or those from islands that belong to CARICOM, to stay at their hotels.

Here are some hotels that you can benefit from with special Caribbean rates.
