Summer is in full swing, and with it comes the little summer fun at home moments we love:

  • Watching children play in backyard sprinklers, laughing in delight.
  • Grilling our favorite foods outdoors and eating with the sun warming our faces and the breeze tousling our hair.
  • Making our summer reading lists and seeking quiet spots to peacefully enjoy the latest novels.
  • Pouring a glass of freshly brewed iced tea, complemented with mint from the garden.

Summer is amazing small moments wrapped in sunshine.

For some of us, when we think June, July, and August, we think about lazy afternoons at the beach.

There is nothing like the sound of the waves rolling in and crashing upon the sand or watching palm trees fronds sway from our towel or lounge chair. Luckily, there is hope for a future spent on white-sand beaches, sipping tropical drinks with tiny umbrellas, and enjoying the bliss of having nowhere else to be.

Many islands and destinations in the Caribbean have begun to reopen to travelers. We are excited and encouraged by this careful and slow reopening of destinations because we know that many of you are looking forward to traveling again. We also know you may have questions and concerns about health and safety precautions when it comes to planning your next trip.

Our travel industry suppliers are working hard to ensure that you can find the right time to get back to your favorite beach.  Our team is carefully following reopening policies and procedures and how they affect you and your travel plans. We can’t wait to get back to the beach, and we know you can’t either. When the time is right, we will be here to make that happen.

Until then, bring the beach and summer fun home to you:
