All-Inclusives and Packages from $147 a Day Across the Caribbean

June 1, 2004 -- The Caribbean in autumn can be full of surprises, the best of which are the lower prices, when the slow off season gets even slower as families' free time vanishes as schools start back in session. Look to these deals for some extra savings in Puerto Rico, Jamaica and St. Lucia.

Puerto Rico

At the plush Westin Rio Mar Beach Resort in Puerto Rico this autumn, you can stay on a five-night holiday from just $765 per person, which the firm says is a savings of $763 per couple over the regular rate. The land-only deal is valid for visits from September 10 through December 14, 2004, but you must make reservations by June 11 to qualify, so hurry! The Rio Mar is set on 481 acres of tropical beauty, with great views, all sorts of water activities, golf, spa and fitness center and a full-service casino.
