It’s not peak season, and that’s what makes it so wonderful.
Because while September is the slowest time of year in the Caribbean, the region is very much open for travel — and thanks to relaxed travel protocols, right now is the easiest it’s been to travel to the Caribbean since the onset of the pandemic.
Our latest edition of Places to Go takes you to well-known destinations, luxury hotels and a few far-flung beach destinations where you’re guaranteed to have all the space you’re looking for.
Here’s where to go this month.
Nassau, The Bahamas Nassau has never been better. Period. The island of New Providence (and its sister island of Paradise Island) is pulsing with energy: world-class chefs have been opening Nassau outposts in droves; sleek new bars are drawing cocktail enthusiasts, from downtown’s Graycliff Sky Lounge to Kendall Jenner’s new tequila bar; new resorts have debuted like the sparkling new Margaritaville Beach Resort; and The Bahamas’ vibrant culture and gastronomy remain at the forefront, whether you’re spending an evening at the Fish Fry or taking a conch-flavored stroll in the afternoon at Potter’s Cay. And of course there’s Atlantis Paradise Island and the Baha Mar, the two mega resorts that continue to up the game for the entire destination.
