The deal
Experience the unique culture of the French Caribbean where spectacular natural beauty, exquisite dining, and trendy nightlife converge for a posh and sophisticated island stay. Consider these outstanding editor-vetted packages available on exotic Martinique and upscale St. Barts, available from only $670 per person.

Martinique: 4-night package with airfare from $670
Known as the “Isle of Flowers,” the dramatic scenery of Martinique offers plenty of opportunities for hikers and nature lovers in the shadow of smoldering Mont Pelée.

Located directly across the bay from the cosmopolitan capital of Fort-de-France, the upscale Hotel Carayou has 201 brightly furnished rooms with balconies and private beach access; the beach offers  free kayak and windsurf rentals. Consider a 4-night stay at this laid-back seaside resort, including round-trip airfare from Miami, from just $670. Book by July 10. Travel this July 11 through August 31.

St. Barts: Hotel Le Manapany 4-Night Escape from $1981
A posh Caribbean getaway is yours for the taking on ultra-stylish St. Barts, an island famous for its delectable French cuisine, haute couture boutiques, and luxurious seaside villas frequented by the Hollywood jet-set. Located on the island’s picturesque North Shore on secluded Anse des Cayes, the 4-star Hotel Le Manapany provides an upscale stay in a remote tropical setting.

Highlights include a 600-foot private beach, lighted tennis courts, and 42 Balinese-style guestrooms and suites outfitted with 4-poster canopied king beds. For the best value, we suggest the "Discover St. Barths" package which covers four nights’ accommodation with daily breakfast and  3-day car rental.

Plus, receive a 1-hour massage, scuba lesson, or jet ski excursion for two. This offer is available through December 17 and starts at $1981 for two in a Superior Garden View Room.
