Saint Kitts/Nevis
Saint Kitts/Nevis

Savings: 70%

Upside: Notorious for beautiful beaches, spas, world-class golf and nearly perfect weather conditions, Nevis has a little something for everyone. And, in the summer, this island also has phenomenal deals.

A stay at the ultra-luxe Four Seasons in Nevis is about $300 a night up until the early fall, a significant discount from the whopping $1,000-a-night rates that run between Christmas and New Year's Eve. Plus, there are additional perks including every third night free until November, complimentary kids meals for children age five and under and free ferry service from nearby St. Kitts for kids 18 and under.

Downside: Airfare is pricey year round, but drops about 15% in the summer months compared to November and December, when tickets tend to be around $750 and up, according to Expedia's research team. And hurricanes could mean more severe weather in the upcoming weeks, but even a downpour might not spoil a stay at the Four Seasons. "These prices just don't exist during the high season," Brown said.
