I’ve already got cabin fever, and it’s only the second hour of being cooped up because of the blizzard hitting the northeast tonight. To pass the time, I’m daydreaming about my next relaxing, beach vacation. The question at Fly.com is never when, it’s where and how much can I save!?
Best Airfares to Beach Destinations
Here are some of my favorite beach airfares from NYC:
- $175 — New York City to Miami (R/T incl. Tax) – Anytime you can get to popular South Florida for under $200, jump on that deal.
- $262 — New York City to San Juan, Puerto Rico (R/T incl. Tax) – Maybe it’s because Puerto Rico is part of the USA, but it is consistently the cheapest flight to the Caribbean. And it is certainly not because the beaches are sub-par, head to Culebra for one of the most relaxing and picturesque beaches around.
- $372 — New York City to Grand Cayman (R/T incl. Tax) – This lesser-traveled country (pictured above) is absolutely stunning. The water is the clearest I’ve ever seen with my own eyes and it’s an ideal location to snorkel in search of Nemo (the fish, not the storm).
- $375 — New York City to Nassau, Bahamas (R/T incl. Tax) – Because it’s better in the Bahamas, and that’s no lie! This is another affordable Caribbean destination that has everything to offer, including the very popular Atlantis Resort.
- $381 — New York City to Montego Bay, Jamaica (R/T incl. Tax) – The laid-back culture is just one of the many things that is great about Jamaica. Hit Seven-Mile Beach in Negril for some sunbathing.
