It’s almost September and summer is coming to a close. Now what? It’s time to book and plan your year-end getaways. We did a little research at Kali headquarters and found discounted, cool places to travel each month until we ring in 2018.

If you find yourself making excuses for why you can’t travel, do it for your health. Traveling has been proven to strengthen your antibodies and boost your immune system due to the exposure to different environments. Traveling also increases happiness and decreases stress. It can improve your brain health by exposing you to new experiences and people, which can increase cognitive flexibility. Travel also helps you stay fit because it forces you to stay active. What are you waiting for?

September: Cancun, Mexico

In September, you can find huge discounts on hotels in Cancun, Mexico. The Ritz Carlton property is only $260/N and is clean, relaxing, and luxurious. Whale sharks are typically there until mid-October. If you haven’t swum with whale sharks, it’s time to check that box now. There are two other must see excursions – discovering Xibalba, the Mayan Underworld and visiting the Mayan ruins, Chichen Itza. However, if you need to catch up on relaxation and reading, the beach or pool at the Ritz are great options.

October: Lisbon, Portugal

  • Average Weather: 72 Degrees Fahrenheit
  • Median Airfare: $550 from NYC
  • 5 Star Hotel: $200/Night

Lisbon had a longer summer than almost anywhere else in Europe. October is the perfect weather to visit. The views and impeccable food options are worth the plane ride. Definitely splurge a little and pick one of these Michelin star restaurants: Belcanto, Alma, or Loco. A few must-see attractions to put on your list while visiting Lisbon are:

November: San Francisco, CA
