Puerto Rico
Here, you can find the entire spectrum of a Caribbean vacation: On the one hand, the ultra luxurious, $1,499-per-night Ritz-Carlton Reserve at Dorado Beach opened in December 2012. On the other, a $2.25 ferry ride can take you to the seven- by five-mile island of Culebra, where you'll find laid-back beachfront seafood shacks, small guesthouses, and a few thousand residents—plus Flamenco Beach, on many best-in-the-world lists. Sands are pure white, waters are clear, and boatmen will take you to coves you can have all to yourself. And remember, when you fly into Puerto Rico, most likely into San Juan, you don't even need to show your passport.
