Cheapest Caribbean Islands:10 destinations by price in 2019
Extremely popular with both North Americans and Europeans during the winter months, the Caribbean is filled with islands and destinations that range from cheap & basic to posh & exclusive. You’ll also find islands where English dominates, but also where Spanish, French, or Dutch are far more common.
This list has been totally updated for 2019 and nearly all islands have now recovered from the devastating 2017 hurricanes Irma and Maria. The hardest hit islands were at the bottom of the list because nearly all cheaper hotels are still rebuilding while the expensive ones reopened quickly.
Ranking Caribbean islands and destinations by price is challenging for a variety of reasons, so we simplified it by including only a cheaper 3-star hotel room for a week and two cheap flights from New York City. Generally speaking, islands with cheaper hotels will also have cheaper meals and diving etc.
All hotels rates and airfares have been updated for the 2019 high season as of November, 2018. Some islands have gone up in price due to some cheaper hotels still being closed after the 2017 hurricanes, while others moved up or down because flights became cheaper or more expensive.
