Avoid summer travel hassles by booking a trip to the Caribbean

Europe is a top summer destination for Bostonians as we have plenty of daily non-stop flights from Logan and overnight schedules even allow for a long weekend trip across the Atlantic. But with all the recent flight delays, baggage issues, and airport strikes, traveling to Europe may not be of your interest right now. While there are still plenty of exciting places for Bostonians to visit this summer, and many of them may be a little unexpected.

Why travel to the Caribbean in the “off season”

June through November is generally considered the “off season” for most of the Caribbean due to both the likelihood of a hurricane and high temperatures. However, if you’re willing to risk it rain or not, summer can be a good time to visit some of the region’s most luxurious destinations. Accommodation prices are lower and flights aren’t as crowded because everyone is either on Cape Cod or heading to France and Italy. The road less traveled by Bostonians in the summer is the Caribbean.

Because prices are often more affordable on many islands in the summer, this season may be the time to check out some of the bucket list islands. An under-the-radar island worth visiting right now is Anguilla. Anguilla is known for its pristine white sand beaches, turquoise waters and serene hotels. However, it has always been difficult to get to, with no cruise ports or major non-stop air routes, getting to Anguilla has generally required the less traveled route via St. Maarten and onward transfers in boat.

But luckily for sun-seekers, there is now a direct flight from MIA to Anguilla (AXA) available daily on American Airlines. This new flight route has made Anguilla much more accessible for Bostonians as we have many daily flights to Miami. The hotel to choose is the Four Seasons Anguilla, with a trusted brand, world-class service and a resort designed to take the stress away, a trip to the Four Seasons Anguilla might be what we all need right now.

While in the summer there’s always a risk of a hurricane in the Caribbean, a quick trip out of Boston for a few days might be just the thing to relax, especially if you don’t feel like dealing with all the headaches currently associated with traveling to Europe right now. And when you stay at the Four Seasons Anguilla, everything you need is on the property, with three pools, multiple restaurants, and a few stunning suites and villas to choose from, your summer vacation will be one to remember.
