For 48 hours, beginning June 21, 2015, 27 hotels & resorts are coming together in the third annual CyberSummer event. I don’t usually post about sales or deals but with some of my favorite bucket list resorts included it was too good to ignore. The two-day only sale will begin at midnight EST on the summer solstice, during which travelers can find exclusive online deals, including four-diamond resorts for $99/night, five-star hotels offering 50% savings, free nights and more.
All offers are currently available for consumers to view here and will be available to book on June 21st and 22nd. Although it’s a two-day only booking window, offers are valid for travel throughout the summer, and in some cases through the end of the year.
My favorite bucket list resorts included in the CyberSummer event:
I’ve already visited Westin Playa Bonita and marveled at the Panama Canal. Perfectly situated on one of Panama’s most beautiful stretches of beach, the Westin Playa Bonita is elegant and modern. It offers the best of Panama’s adventure, beach and city scenes. During the sale, they are offering 75% off best available rates, starting at $55/night. To book, visit Westin Playa Bonita with promo code CYBERSM

With the wild year I’ve been having, wildlife encounters in the Galapagos are high on my list. Ecoventura is an award-winning leader in sustainable travel through the Galapagos Islands. They offer a luxury cruising experience aboard a fleet of expedition yachts. Travelers visit more than a dozen exclusive nature parks for up close experiences with marine iguana, sea lions and famed Galapagos tortoises.
This year, I took selfies with penguins, trekked chimpanzees and gorillas, and watched hippos, tree-climbing lions, elephants, buffalo and crocodiles enjoy their natural environment. Before the end of the year, I plan to swim with whale sharks and Great Whites and see polar bears in Churchill, Manitoba. Joining Ecoventura’s fleet in January 2016, the new-build MV Origin will redefine luxury in the Galapagos with offerings including panoramic state room views, gourmet cuisine, open bar and a variety of other amenities ushering in a new tier of high-end travel in the region. I hope to join them. Obviously, I’m walking on the wild side with my bucket list.
During CyberSummer, Ecoventura will offer 30% off published rates so you can get a little wild too.
If there is one place on almost everyone’s bucket list it’s Machu Picchu. Located in the heart of Cusco’s Historic District, gateway to the world-renowned sanctuary of Machu Picchu, The JW Marriott El Convento Cusco will offer $129/night with daily breakfast included. Built on the grounds of the 16th century San Agustin Convent, the five-star hotel was meticulously restored to preserve a rich amount of history, including pre-Inca walls in some of the rooms and archaeological ruins on site.
This luxurious dream resort has me drooling. I’m tempted to put it on my list. Sales like this can make it more of a reality.
Other participating hotels are in locations that range from peaceful forests of New England to the crystal clear waters of Florida’s east and west coasts to the beaches of the Caribbean & Mexico to the hills & mountains of Latin America. The sale will run from 12:00 a.m. EST on Sunday, June 21, 2015 to 11:59 p.m. EST on Monday, June 22, 2015.
