Choice Hotels Wants to Give You the Caribbean Vacation You Deserve


The storms have passed and the sun is once again shining down on the Caribbean. Thank goodness, because I am more than ready to get back down to the islands. Seriously, is it just me, or did it feel like January lasted more like a year than a month? I’m so glad it’s February.

Most People Don’t Use All Their Vacation Days

I’m also glad to see the impact that Project: Time Off is having on inspiring and encouraging people to plan and take vacations. They found that 54% of Americans didn’t use all their paid time off in 2017. I like to think that given this statistic more people are readying for vacations in 2018. What’s the point of having paid vacation days when you don’t actually use them?

You Really Can Afford to Vacation, Even in the Caribbean

Enter, Choice Hotels. They just kicked off a month-long Capture the Caribbean campaign to get people out from behind their desks and onto the beach. Rightly, the campaign launched with a bang on National Plan on Vacation Day (Jan. 30) and runs through Feb. 28.

Honestly, I get that it’s hard to use vacation days. It can be expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. I can tell you first-hand that Choice’s Caribbean properties are among the best values in the Caribbean. They’re a great option for those eager to relax on the white, sandy beaches but not so keen to spend a lot of money while on the islands.

Choice Hotels Wants to Send You to the Caribbean

I spent a few lazy, sun-drenched days at the Comfort Suites Seven Mile Beach on Grand Cayman last February and, as you can imagine, I would go back in a second. The hotel sits right on Seven Mile Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, yet the nightly rates are incredibly affordable. As a bonus, free breakfast (yes, they had me at free breakfast).

To better acquaint travelers with their value-oriented properties in the Caribbean, Choice Hotels launched a sweepstakes as part of the Capture the Caribbean campaign. They’re giving away one tropical four-night stay for two guests at either Comfort Suites Seven Mile Beach or Comfort Suites Paradise Island in the Bahamas.

Can You Taste the Pina Coladas Yet?

As part of the sweepstakes, Choice Hotels is springing for airfare, ground transportation and spending money. Is it just me or can you already taste the Pina Coladas, too?

Enter the sweepstakes at CapturetheCaribbean.com or post on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook using the hashtags #CapturetheCaribbean and #Sweepstakes. Good luck!
