>If you want an all-inclusive package with all your meals, entertainment and transportation taken care of, this is the time to book a Caribbean vacation. Sandals couples resorts is offering a great sale (you must book by September 30th); you get 40% off your resort stay, up to a $550 credit towards your airfare, and up to two extra nights free if you travel before December 26, 2008. Whether you want to go golfing, scuba diving, or just enjoy a day at the beach, it is nice to have options that are all prepaid (a few fees may apply for extras).

It’s almost a free vacation. The best part is that Sandals is a very green vacation company, installing solar panels to generate the power for their resorts so that they are almost completely self-sustaining. They are a green resort company: they monitor their waste so that it can be recycled or minimized; they have low flow shower heads and compact fluorescent bulbs in the rooms; they are part of CORAL which is an organization whose purpose is to preserve reef life; and they perform beach cleaning at least twice a year with their local communities.

Vacations are good for the soul, but it is even better when a group of resorts offers greenback savings along with green energy growth for your money.
