“I'm excited about St. Lucia. It's known for its Sunkissed beaches, majestic Pitons mountains, and lush rainforests. St. Lucia is gorgeous in the summer,” says Bloom. “St. Lucia has great deals. It has up to 60% off more than two dozen boutique hotels, villas, bed and breakfast and luxury resorts.” You can find these deals at
