We send out deal alerts for cheap flights to the Caribbean fairly often. In fact, we reported on $44 JetBlue tickets to the Caribbean just yesterday. But it's not often we see business class flights to the region for under $500 round-trip. Delta and United are offering nonstop flights to several Caribbean cities like Havana (HAV), Kingston (KIN) and Santo Domingo (SDQ). The deals appear to be available between January and April.

We first spotted the United deals at Secret Flying.

Once in the region, you have several points hotels to choose from. If you stay in Santo Domingo, you should consider the JW Marriott Hotel Santo Domingo, a Category 4 Marriott Bonvoy property which only costs 20,000 points off-peak, 25,000 standard or 30,000 points peak per night.

To search, head to Google Flights and enter your origin and destination cities. Scroll through the calendar function to find dates and prices that work for you. Finally, click through to book directly with the airline or an OTA like Orbitz or Expedia.
