Low prices for high season in the islands

From the Miami Herald:

Maybe you've always wanted to visit the Caribbean in high season, when its harbors are filled with plump yachts, its restaurants are humming with elegant diners and its resorts are aswarm with wealthy families finding refuge from winter's chill.

Trouble is, winter vacations in the Caribbean are expensive, and especially in a poor economy, that's not exactly a turn-on -- and even more so for South Floridians, for whom local beaches are just a short drive away.

In addition, with the islands so close, it's easy for us to get there in the summer and fall, when prices are lower.

However, the economic downturn that came on in 2008 is again providing a window for prospective winter vacationers who aren't in the top tax brackets -- significantly lower costs.
