The common theme of cheap places for March are Central and South American countries as well as the Caribbean.
Here’s a list of countries to travel to for less than $400 round-trip this March.
1. San Salvador, El Salvador For As Low As $97 Round-Trip
El Salvador is the smallest country in Central America but don’t let its size fool you into thinking there’s not much to do.
If you want a trip with some outdoor adventure, then this is the place for you as El Salvador has a lot to offer with its natural beauty, including volcanoes, beaches, Mayan ruins to visit, and more.
Start your trip by visiting Cerro Verde National Park where you will find one of the country’s most beautiful landscapes. You will have the chance to hike and visit three volcanoes, including Izalco, Cerro Verde, and Santa Ana.
If you’re looking for a beach, La Libertad Beaches is the closest beach, which is about a less than hour drive. The beach is known for its golden coastlines along the Pacific coasts, and activities such as swimming, boogie boarding, and more.

Have you checked out our guide for spending 24 hours in Medellín? If not, then let’s bring you up to speed: it’s a beautiful and vibrant city known for having the perfect weather year-round.
Medellín is called the city of eternal spring by locals and like San Salvador, is another great place where you will find natural beauty unlike anywhere else in the world. That’s part of the reason why locals host the Flower Festival or Feria de Las Flores each year.
Besides the weather, the food and nightlife in Medellín are what keep people going back. Some foods to try in Medellín include arepas, a dish served with cheese and vegetables inside cornflour before it’s cooked or grilled; mondongo, a soup made from tripe and vegetables; and fríjoles antioqueños, a dish specific to this region that’s essentially a bean stew.
There are a ton of flights for less than $200 round-trip but those of you leaving from Miami have the best options when it comes to price.

3. Oranjestad, Aruba For As Low As $149 Round-Trip
Oranjestad, Aruba is the perfect destination for those of you looking to spend as much time in the water as possible. There’s no place in the Caribbean like Oranjestad when it comes to snorkeling, heading out on a boat, parasailing, jet-skiing, or simply just relaxing on the beach.
One of the top reasons why Aruba remains one of the top destinations among travelers is because of the Caribbean Sea and white sand beaches. In fact, Eagle Beach in Oranjestad has consistently ranked one of the top five beaches in the world, tourism officials highlight.

This is a difficult place to travel to on a budget because it’s just one of those destinations that people love year-round because the weather is nothing short of perfect.
The Dutch Caribbean island is known for its beaches and colorful scenery. Willemstad’s iconic pastel-colored colonial architecture, floating Queen Emma Bridge, and 17th-century Mikvé Israel-Emanuel Synagogue are worth the visit if you geek out on architecture.
If you’re just here for the beach, Cas Abou is a top pick among travelers for the white sand and crystal clear blue water.
