Submitted by: Jon D..
Destination: St. Lucia
Best deal found: Direct flight from Atlanta to St. Lucia on Delta for my wife and I right after our wedding last year. I think the fare was only $600 for the both of us. Only takes about 4.5 hrs to get there and of course by the scenery of this place, the view is breathtaking. We had our own private plunge pool in the room with an open 4th wall (room was on the edge of a rainforest 1500ft above sea level) overlooking the twin Piton mountains. Amazing! Thanks Clark- love the show.

Destination: Alaska – Denali
Best deal found:  We stayed at the Princess Wilderness Lodge. It was very affordable and had a deck that had the most wonderful view of “the mountain” (Mt. McKinley). On our last day there, they called our room at 6am to tell us that the mountain was “out” (meaning that you could see the entire mountain – a rare occasion as the tip is generally covered in clouds). This was when I captured the picture I’m submitting….straight from the deck of our lodge! It was incredible!

Submitted by: Logan S.
Destination: Costa Rica
Best deal found: Our best deal on this trip was the airfare! We constantly monitored travel deals to Costa Rica through and Yahoo travel alerts. When we spotted deals to San Jose, CR from Atlanta for $99 each way, we wasted no time booking. The photograph of the cute little girl was taken about 15 miles outside of a little town called Mata Palo.
