The birds are migrating south for the winter in pursuit of warmer weather, and so can you at these prices. Flights to the Caribbean begin at $99 one-way nonstop, or $238 round-trip in economy. So if the holiday cheer has left your soul and you’re despondent at the idea of seven more weeks of slushy ice, dust of your passport and hop on a flight.
