There are so many resorts clamoring for the travelers’ attention in the Caribbean that it’s easy to overlook smaller but more budget-friendly hotels where it’s still possible to book a room for under $100 a night.
The tradeoff for paying top dollar may be fewer amenities (though even most small hotels in the Caribbean have at least a swimming pool) or an off-the-beach location, but you’re also more likely to stay in a property that’s locally owned and more integrated into the community. (And some of our picks are actually set right on the beach).
If you’re mode of travel is less about being pampered and more about experiencing a destination without breaking the bank, consider a stay at one of these affordable Caribbean hotels, each of which has off-season room rates starting at less than $100 per night.
