The Caribbean Islands
I’m a huuuuuuge fan of the Caribbean. I’ve been to about 7 (Barbados and St. Maarten are my FAVORITES) of the Caribbean islands and they are super beautiful, not too far, and not at all expensive to get to from the states, especially if you live in Florida.
Since the springtime is when the weather begins to break and finally start warming up for North America, it causes prices in the Caribbean to drop. Lucky us!
With temperatures constantly around 90 degrees, Cartagena is a must visit this spring! Located on the Caribbean Sea, the city features something for everyone including budget beach front resorts for beach lovers and also historic scenes for history lovers.
Cancun is perfect for everyone. Not only are the beaches BEAUTIFUL, but there’s all inclusive resorts, hotels, and even airbnb’s in Cancun for great prices. Plus you can typically find flights there for less than $200 roundtrip! I actually flew to Cancun for only $11 last March! Check out my guide to Cancun here!
Belize is the neighbor to Mexico and has an absolute caribbean feel. The food is delicious and the island vibe is perfect. & if you like hostels there are also some GREAT choices on the island as well. There’s Caye Caulker island nearby which you can get to by ferry, and it is a popular spot for locals, travelers, and even celebrities. Be sure to try the donuts at ice n beans! And make sure you get a fry jack!!!! Read about my trip to Belize/Travel Guide here!
You can get a hotel in Vietnam for around $30 a night, need I say more?!?
Thailand is, and should be, on everyone’s list. It is definitely on mine! As you can see from the picture above it is beautiful. While there you MUST take a ferry to Koh Phi Phi where you’ll be surrounded with nothing but natural beauty from the white sand beaches to the rock formations. Since spring is slow season for Phuket you can get pretty cheap flights and super cheap accommodations.
