#1 Key West, Florida

Welcome to the southernmost point in the continental U.S., where the sunsets are legendary, and the vibe is laid-back. This is the perfect location for easy days biking to the local pub or lying on a beach taking in the sun. Key West is a paradise for those who love the ocean, with crystal-clear waters perfect for snorkeling, diving, and sailing. Don't miss out on a sunset cruise or a visit to the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum. And of course, indulge in some key lime pie – it's a must!


#2 Aruba

Known for its stunning beaches and constant sunshine, Aruba is perfect for a relaxing yet adventurous getaway. Eagle Beach and Palm Beach are top spots for some fun on the beach, while Arikok National Park offers hiking and cave exploration for those interested in exploring the island. At night, the strip near Palm Beach comes alive and there is lots of evening entertainment within walking distance. Whether you’re looking for fresh seafood or cocada, there is a restaurant for you. There are also cigar bars, nightclubs, and other entertainment lining the street to keep you smiling and satisfied.

Cancun is synonymous with beautiful beaches and vibrant nightlife. Spend your days lounging on powdery white sands and your nights dancing away at world-famous clubs. Stay at a 5-star luxury hotel or enjoy any of the 100+ all-inclusive resorts in the area to indulge in world-class dining and round-the- clock activities. For a bit of history, take a day trip to the Mayan ruins of Tulum or Chichen Itza. And if you're into snorkeling or diving, the MUSA underwater museum is a unique experience you won’t want to miss!

#4 Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is a diverse destination with something for everyone. Punta Cana is famous for its all-inclusive resorts and endless beaches, while Santo Domingo offers a rich cultural experience. For nature lovers, a trip to Samaná Bay during whale-watching season is unforgettable. Whether you're into beach lounging, history, or adventure, the Dominican Republic has it all.

#5 Caribbean Cruising

If you can't decide on just one island, why not visit several? Cruising in the Caribbean Sea cruising offers a fantastic way to explore multiple destinations in one trip. You'll get to enjoy the luxury of cruise amenities (like pools, a spa, comedy shows) while waking up to a new island almost every day. Popular itineraries often include stops in the Bahamas, Jamaica, St. Lucia, and more. Additionally, cruising is a great option for families since there are activities and entertainment for all ages.
