Summer is the best time of year to get great deals on Caribbean vacations, and if you visit the islands in the summer months you'll be welcomed with special events from concerts to carnival that help keep the visitors coming even in the "low" season. And here's a little secret for you: bargain rates in the Caribbean actually stretch well into the fall, so that "summer" deal you book now can find you lounging in the islands for cheap even as the autumn leaves start turning back home!
