The results are in. We’ve analyzed the data from more than 5 million user searches and identified that many American travelers are choosing to fly to Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America this summer.

In fact searches to these three regions represent nearly half of our Top 50 International Summer Destinations for 2014 list.

More importantly flights to popular cities within these regions have experienced a notable price drop, compared to airfare for the same period last year  – with some routes delivering hundreds of dollars in cost savings.

Overall, average airfare to destinations in Mexico dropped 8%, and flights to the Caribbean and Central America were down 4% and 7% respectively. In contrast, the average cost of a roundtrip flight to Europe is 6% higher than last summer.

Check out our Top 50 below for some summer travel inspiration. We’ve even included average fare prices so that you can see which cities offer the best bang for the buck.

Happy Travels!
