savings.com"Choose a less expensive island. The least expensive Caribbean destination is the Dominican Republic hands down, yet the beaches are just as sparkling and the water and blue as other islands in the region. A close second is Jamaica, and after this, San Juan, Puerto Rico. Finally, great bargains can be found for travelers to Aruba and the Mexican Caribbean beaches of Cancun and Los Cabos.
