Caribbean Calling: TripAdvisor Reveals Deals in Destinations Open for Business

April is Most Affordable Month for a Caribbean Trip; Martinique Offers Least Expensive Accommodations
TripAdvisor Highlights Five Islands Under $2000 for a Weeklong Visit

NEEDHAM, Mass., Feb. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --TripAdvisor®, the travel planning and booking site, today announced its Caribbean travel pricing report, revealing hotel rates and round-trip airfare to popular Caribbean destinations from February – April 2018. The iconic beach vacation region was impacted by devastating hurricanes this past fall, but the majority of the islands are now welcoming tourism where travelers can find low hotel prices and airfare.


Based on average accommodation rates and select airfare from this three-month period, TripAdvisor pricing revealed five islands where U.S. travelers can experience a weeklong trip for less than $2000 per person: Curacao, Dominican Republic, Guadeloupe, Martinique and Puerto Rico. These Caribbean destinations have hotel deals under $250 per night. Travelers can also save up to 33% on accommodations when planning an island trip during the least expensive week now through the end of April, according to TripAdvisor pricing.

"As much of the Caribbean was unaffected by the fall storms, travelers will find most destinations are open for business now and are ready to welcome travelers for their peak travel season," said Brooke Ferencsik, senior director of communications for TripAdvisor. "To help travelers find great prices for an island getaway, the TripAdvisor report shows you can find value in a number of exceptional Caribbean destinations over the next few months."
