The Caribbean has always been an ideal escape for a dreamy vacation.

Whether it’s cultural cities or stunning beaches, this side of the world is jam-packed with unforgettable experiences.

You know where I’m going with this…

The best vacation experiences often cost a fortune! While there are some reasonably priced getaways in the Caribbean, airfare is a different story.

That’s where budget airlines come in to save the day. If you’re willing to sacrifice a few extra inches of legroom, free bags and refreshments, and questionable flight schedules, then paradise is just a short, cheap flight away.

Frontier recently expanded its network with an exciting new route, which means the low-cost carrier now flies to 12 Caribbean destinations.

Exciting New Route To Lesser Known Islands

If we’re all being honest here, the only true justification for taking a budget airline isn’t the savings themselves, it’s where you’re going.

If a budget airline’s route network is a snoozer, you’re better off splurging a bit for that extra legroom.

That being said, Frontier’s network is pretty impressive all things considered. Some cool U.S. cities, a few Central American hotspots, and now a dozen Caribbean vacation destinations.

The latest route is quite a surprise, actually. Who saw Trinidad and Tobago coming?

Probably no one, but these lesser-known islands are actually surging in popularity with alluring pristine beaches, a melting pot of cultures, and breathtaking nature throughout both islands.

As exciting as it is to have the chance to explore somewhere new and trendy, the downside is you will need to connect unless you’re on a Caribbean-hopping adventure.

The new route will launch from San Juan, Puerto Rico to Port of Spain, Trinidad on July 11th.

Best of all, in true Frontier fashion, the flight will only cost $29.

Cheap Flights To 8 Caribbean Islands

With summer just around the corner, there’s no better time to plan your dream vacation. While cramped seats and no wifi may not seem ‘dreamy’, in this case it’s the destination, not the journey.

The Caribbean is teeming with amazing places to visit, but we all have tropical islands at the top of our list.

Frontier now offers flights to 8 Caribbean islands:

  • Antigua and Barbuda
  • The Bahamas
  • Barbados
  • Cozumel
  • Jamaica
  • Sint Maarten
  • Trinidad and Tobago
  • Turks and Caicos

Trinidad and Tobago is undoubtedly the cheapest with the latest promo, but comparing apples to apples with major carriers, Frontier takes the cake.

4 Cultural Cities And Resort Hotspots

The Caribbean isn’t just postcard-worthy islands lined with picturesque palm trees and luxe resorts; there are some incredible cultural cities to visit for a city break.

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with doing what the typical vacationer does by booking a glamorous escape in a high-end beach resort either.

The good news is the Caribbean is filled with all of the above.

Beyond spectacular islands, exploring the nitty gritty roots of a country can be just as fascinating, and oftentimes, this is best done in cultural hubs and larger cities.

That’s especially the case for the Dominican Republic, where travelers can now fly into these 3 destinations via Frontier:

  • Santo Domingo
  • Santiago de los Caballeros
  • Punta Cana
Dolphin Beach in Cancun

Next up is Mexico. Travelers won’t be able to do quite the same here, as flights to Mexico City and Guadalaraja aren’t offered.

But, like Punta Cana, travelers can fly into one of the most world-renowned beach resort cities on the planet.

You know we’re talking about Cancun, the most visited international destination by Americans, and rightfully so.

Beware Of The Fun Police

One could argue Frontier is the “TSA of the skies”.

Nobody likes going through airport security and being subject to barking orders, grumpy attitudes, and that one who always conveniently ‘forgets’ to take off his shoes.

To make matters worse, many travelers would agree flying with Frontier is like going through TSA all over again at the gate, where the call out travelers one by one to measure their Personal Item.

By pushing the rules of their baggage limitations, your $29 flight can easily become $129 or more with last-minute fees charged at the gate.
