Finding a cheap Caribbean vacation that does not sacrifice quality, amenities and good food can be challenging. Many online booking agents advertise cheap vacations but it’s hard to really know what you will and will not be getting before you arrive. After years of travel threw out the Caribbean as a budget traveler I find the best way to get the most for less is an all inclusive vacation either by land or sea.
