The Caribbean is more affordable than ever

At least that is what the Miami Herald is saying - due to price cutting and the strength of the dollar in euro zone islands:

South Floridians know that in the Caribbean, summer is always value season, with rates often 40 percent less than in winter. The news: This year, with the economy still soft, even islands typically beyond the budget are offering reasonable rates and free nights. Some are even throwing in deals on dining and activities.

More good news: In the last year the dollar has gained ground against the euro, the operative currency in St. Barths and St. Martin, so dollar-toting Americans will find prices almost 20 percent lower today than a year ago.

The article goes on to detail destinations and special offers - with lots of good links.
