From the beaches, food, and culture, there is so much to love about San Juan. One thing that continuously makes San Juan attractive is the fact that you can experience all the goodness and warm hospitality the Caribbean offers without a passport.

What’s great about December is that we’ve officially made it through hurricane season, so if you’ve been on the fence about traveling to the Caribbean because of storms, you’re in the clear.

If you are near New York’s JFK or New Jersey’s Newark airports, then this insane deal is for you.  This country is just one of those places that’s hard to get to for less than $800 round-trip on a good day.

It’s a highly sought-out destination because of its beautiful beaches, nature, and of course, iconic architecture.

According to Skyscanner, there are two options for folks on the East coast that will get you there for less than $310 round-trip.

Now, here’s something you don’t see every day: flight deals to Europe from “second cities” for less than $400.

If you’re not familiar with the term second city, it’s a little ambiguous, but typically refers to places that are second in population. In terms of travel, it typically means a place that’s not at the top of your mind when you think of a country. For example, if we say name a city in France, you will probably say Paris first versus Lyon.

For the sake of flight deals, second cities can be harder when flying a deal, but if you’re leaving from Columbus, Ohio; Buffalo, New York, or Austin, Texas, you’re in luck.

You can travel to Amsterdam for less than $350 round-trip, according to Skyscanner.
