If youve patiently waited until now for a warm-weather vacation, take a hard look at the Caribbean, because your reward is here: cheaper flights and resorts desperate to fill up their many rooms after the peak winter season.
Spring is a great time to visit. Temperatures hover in the mid-80s, and most of the Caribbean remains dry. Many websites cater to the budget-conscious traveler. Start with the package deals at CheapCaribbean.com and Bostons own TNTVacations.com. Also, look at the airlines. Jet Blue, US Airways, Delta, Spirit, and Air Jamaica all offer package deals with flight and hotel. For those who want to book the resort separate from the airline, look at the hotel discounters like Hotels.com.
Dont fall for sucker savings like a fifth or sixth night free without additional discounts. Those wont make a significant difference in overall cost. You want serious discounts, like the ones on the five islands that follow.
