It's drizzling here in New York City and TPG staffers are already searching for ways to escape the weather.

If you're looking for an immediate Caribbean escape like me then you're in luck because flights to various islands have dropped as low as $153 round-trip — with a plenty of availability to Puerto Rico. One of the best parts about vacationing in Puerto Rico as a US citizen is that you don't need a passport for the island escape.
