Ahh January, that most ironic of months… at least as it relates to cold weather and Caribbean travel.
Yes, it’s generally freezing and dreary across the U.S., Canada, the UK, and other popular points of origin for overseas travelers to Caribbean, but the beaches, hiking trails, bars, and hotels in the islands aren’t nearly as crowded as you might think.
Some gamble that the winter will be mild, taking a wait and see approach that generally peters out right around Valentine’s Day. Others require a few extra weeks for their finances to recover after going overboard with the gifts and merriment during the Holidays.
And speaking of the Holidays, of course, nearly all of us are tasked with getting back into the regular swing of work or school all-too-soon after our collective New Year’s hangover wears off.

Indeed, there are lots of valid reasons to eschew the warmer climes and finer times on offer in the Caribbean during January. In response to these excuses, though, many hotels across the region are have a retort: discounts.
Of all the winter months, January tends to offer the best deals.
Take the current 5th Night Free deal from The Westin Resort St. John, for instance. In addition to the free night savings, you also get a free room upgrade and a food and beverage credit of up to $200.
These savings are only available for resort stays enjoyed between January 1 and 31, 2015, and they’re going FAST!
