25. Perks, Planes, and Paradise: Our Caribbean Island Travel Hacks
Hello fellow explorers! We're the Travel Hacking Moms—Alex, Pam, and Jess, and we're excited to take you along on our recent Caribbean adventures!
Starting with Aruba, Pam recounts how she masterfully use Marriott free night certificates. It was a trek from the US west coast, but United miles and a clever flight booking made it possible.
She first stayed at the Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino—and, wow, what a place! Despite some reservations about the ‘casino’ aspect, she fell in love with the resort’s atmosphere.
Then she 'hotel hopped' over to the Renaissance Wind Creek Aruba. The highlight? Flamingo Beach, with its unique blend of snorkeling and lounging alongside pink flamingos!
Next stop, Grand Cayman. Alex's tale of her stay at the Kimpton Seafire is fascinating. Thanks to a sign-up bonus, she extended her stay from two nights to four—all by purchasing 35k points during a 100% bonus period. The breathtaking Seven Mile Beach and top-notch service added a cherry on top of her luxury stay.
Finally, Jess recaps her stay at the Park Hyatt St. Kitts. Caribbean luxury at its finest!
