While Grenada may not be the cheapest Caribbean destination on this list, it’s the perfect place for English-speaking folks to get away if they don’t want to fight throngs of tourists. Round trip airfare from NYC will run you about $350, but Grenada’s comfortable, mid-level accommodations and stunning rainforest landscape more than make up for the extra cash spent. A standard room the Mermaid Hotel costs about $107 a night and comes with all the modern amenities of a comfy stay, plus a beach chair on their gorgeous strip of sand. The onsite bar and restaurant is ready to serve you island-y delights, like their Rum Punch that’s not to be missed. If you’re looking to get more off the beaten path, Carriacou, a small island just north of Grenada proper that is still part of the country, is the place to go. Carriacou Grand View Hotel is a best bet with rates starting at $65 per night. While it’s easy to find something you like at the well-stocked bar, don’t leave without trying their rummy signature drink the JCB (aka Just Come Back).
