Submitted by: Jeffery N.
Destination: Panama
Best deal found: In Panama they have a mall that is totaly duty free. The tour guide told us people from all over the world go there to do shopping because of the tax free zone

Submitted by: Eric D.
Destination: Negril to MoBay, Jamaica
Best deal found: The Polkerris bed and breakfast by far! $120/night for the master suite overlooking all of Montego Bay. Personalized breakfast included and right on “Hip Strip”. THX Clark for letting us know about the cheap tix! Oh yeah, don’t miss the private kayak tours on the Great River. Class 3’s and 4’s in off season, supposedly 5’s and 6’s during rain season! Guides are well trained and extremely knowledgeable. Water is like a movie set and perfect for swimming or bird watching.

Submitted by: Pamela A.
Destination: Carmel, CA
Best deal found: What can I say, the best things in LIFE are free, just waiting for you to discover them, just like the cairns discovered on the Beach at Spanish Bay, Carmel, CA. We rounded the corner on our drive along the coast of Carmel and 17MI Drive, and there they were. We had to stop and ponder the hours that went into the cairns, and who and what they stood for? A beautiful spot to sit and relax and soak in the beautiful coast of California.
