After a long 6 months of work, it’s that time to start looking for a relaxing place to rejuvenate. With so many choices to choose from, how do you get a cheap tropical vacation these days? What are some cheap tropical vacation spots? Let’s take a look.
Let’s start with the Caribbean. It’s usually not difficult to snag a great deal if you’re flying out from the East Coast, but the winter months are very busy in the Caribbean, and you’re probably going to pay more than if you go in the summer. That being said, you’re also going to be able to find better deals and offers at the more popular destinations like St. Thomas, Grenada, Martinique, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, and the Bahamas. The real trick is to look for deals that offer all-inclusive accommodations. Dominican Republic would be an excellent place start because of the inclusive accommodations they offer, round-trip airfare, onboard credits and maybe even some weather insurance for about $500.
Hawaii offers several amazing deals. The good news is that the winter months are actually Hawaii’s down season. You have a better chance of getting a good deal during this time of the season. It will probably be cheaper than the Caribbean for a lot of the people reading this who reside on the West Coast. The Big Island, Maui, and Oahu have a lot of awesome deals, because they’re some of the most heavily trafficked areas of Hawaii, and they are replete with deals and offers. You might be able to get a three-night package to Oahu, for instance, for $459. The deal would include condominium accommodations, round-trip airfare, and even the ability to take along your kids that are 12 and under for free. You might even be able to get trips to Oahu for $335, all-included. To be able to get to the most esteemed tropical destination in the Pacific for just under $400 isn’t too shabby at all. It’s just fine.
As you can tell, there are plenty of deals available to some of the hottest tropical destinations in the world. The trick is looking for the all-inclusive deals, and then just seeing if you can afford it. If you can clearly demarcate out all your expenses ahead of time, you’ll know right then and there whether you can afford it or not. After budgeting in incidental expenses, you’ll be able to take that trip to the tropics without worrying about tapping into your savings accounts. If you’re not quite sure if you’re up to booking a trip all on your own, have your wife do it. Or, go to a friend that’s been outside of the U.S., because he’ll have some tips about how to save money even if he can’t provide you the best deals.
