‘Tis the season to snap up a great travel deal if you’re able to sneak away between now and December 18 or 19. Every year, during the slow period that falls between the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays—a time when most people stay home—resorts offer significant deals in order to fill rooms. Which is why I asked Caribbean travel specialist Terry McCabe of Altour—who also knows Mexico very well—to share the best luxury resort deals she’s seeing for that time frame. Terry is a “preferred partner” of many top luxury hotel brands—she sits on the advisory boards of AMResorts, Belmond, Four Seasons, Hyatt Resorts, Preferred Hotels, Rosewood, and Starwood—and that translates to offers and perks that are not available to the general public. Here are just a few that have crossed her desk within the past few days:
Third night free:
Four Seasons Punta Mita, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
West Bay Club, Turks and Caicos
Fourth night free:
Curtain Bluff, Antigua, when you book certain room categories. Or pay for five nights and get two nights free.
Four Seasons Nevis. You also get complimentary meals from the children’s menus for kids 12 and under, and complimentary transfers from St. Kitts Airport for kids 18 and under.
Fifth night free:
Cap Juluca, Anguilla
Jade Mountain, St. Lucia, when you book certain room categories.
Rosewood Jumby Bay, Antigua, when you book certain room categories.

If you can’t get away till Christmas/New Year’s, no worries: You’ll find availability, and a few nifty deals still, in Mexico. The next window for super deals is the second and third weeks of January. I’ll be telling you about those offers when they start to pop up. Stay tuned.
