Summer is nearly pushing up daisies amid autumn’s cruel mutiny. Time to Netflix and chill — er, literally and meteorologically.
Then again … while the plebes are content to just jacket up and rake in their lawn-shrouding leaves, the savvy can break out the Bermudas and rake in travel deals to more solar-blessed locales.
Central America, Mexico, the Caribbean, Florida — they’re all comin’ a-wooing. Here are eight beachy ops to try.
■ COSTA RICA
The $900/per person “To the Stars” package includes three nights at the bohemian, tree-hugging, Las Catalinas-set Santarena Hotel, including breakfast. The June-opened resort is tossing in use of a hydrogen-powered rental car — the only such whip in Latin America fueled by the periodic table’s numero uno — along with a tour of the nearby space rocket company HQ which goes by the same name as the new Brad Pitt flick, “Ad Astra.” Good for travel through June 2020.
25 percent off stays at the Dream South Beach, which voyeuristically sits on Collins Avenue behind the Versace mansion, if you book directly through the website. Includes comped booze, a free upgrade at check-in and 10 percent off at its Shala Spa. From $275.
■ TURKS & CAICOS
40 percent off at the luxurious Wymara Resort on Provo’s Grace Bay Beach, now a decade old. So that’s the good news. The slightly less good news is that their new 4- and 5-room oceanfront villages start at $4,750 per night. But remember that good news? Now they’re the low, low price of $2,850/night for stays through Dec. 18. You’re practically making money.
$95/night starting rates at the Marriott Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa — or as they say in the local parlance, 20 percent off. Oooh, shiny new pool. Oooh, shiny new renovated rooms (433 of them). Oooh, shiny new rates under a C-note.
■ COSTA RICA
40 percent off at El Silencio Lodge and Spa in Bajos del Toro if you stay over select dates September through December. All up in the cloud forest highlands on 500 acres, it’s got a 5,000-square-foot organic greenhouse, trout ponds and free-range chickens to DIY stock its on-site restaurant Las Ventanas — moral and guilt-free omnivorousness, all day, every day. Good for stays through October. From $284.76/night.
$383/night “Seaside and Sundown” package includes comped sunset sails and access to the VIP lounge at the Aruba Marriott Resort. Sitting on the ABC alpha dog’s Palm Beach, it’s not the perks that make this Marriott a must-stay. It’s the complete and utterly rugrat-free safe space the adults-only resort provides.
50 percent off luxury suites/penthouse villas at the SLS South Beach hotel. That goes a heckuva long way when it eviscerates starting rates from $900 to $450 per night. Book by Sept. 27, stay by Dec. 23.
■ PUERTO RICO
15 percent off at La Concha with the San Juan property’s “Delightful Fall” package. Concha is fresh off a lobby and room reno, and this package includes daily breakfast for two at The Loft Beach Front, a destination tour and free entry to Fifty-Eight Night Club. From $198/night.
