Caribbean Net News:"CORAL GABLES, USA: With many major airline carriers now charging $15, $25 or even more, per checked bag, carrying-on seems like the smart move for many travelers. Traveling to the Caribbean, where a swimsuit, a sundress or two, some tank tops, shorts and flip flops are the norm, carrying-on can be effortless. Additionally, many Caribbean resorts make it easy to book complete packages – with everything included.
Packing for a Caribbean escape can be light, which makes it better than alternative winter vacations. A ski trip requires layers of weather-proof clothing, hats and gloves, plus skis and boots. This can lead to multiple, overstuffed suitcases, and equally heavy airline fees."
