The Caribbean is exotic and unparalleled with its blue waters, sugar-sand beaches, and seemingly endless islands ripe for exploring. It’s a natural draw, too, for eager travelers looking for an escape during winter’s cold, gray days. Flights from East Coast hubs like Miami, Atlanta, and New York are bargain priced, with some fares as low as $200. (Departures from New York City and Atlanta to Puerto Rico are particularly good buys.)
Despite its popularity in colder months, the Caribbean maintains much of its affordable pricing, and the islands have a wide range of accommodations, from five-star villas to quaint and cozy cottages tucked away in island hills. Many are incredibly affordable, even in peak season.
Whether you’re looking to get away for a weekend or a long, relaxing week, look first to these Caribbean destinations, which Airbnb says are the most affordable this winter.
