Sure, we love a good bargain and all, but the dizzying array of travel deal options can be overwhelming enough to convince us to pack our bags...and build a pillow fort in our living room.

But instead of forsaking a girlfriends getaway or family trip, why not let the travel experts narrow down the options for you? This year, as Black Friday and Cyber Monday approach, there's one hot spot you may want to zoom in on: The Caribbean.

Especially for Cyber Monday, this geographical enclave is very appealing for a wallet-friendly trip. "Last year, the Caribbean was among the hottest regions to search for on Cyber Monday with flight searches up 28%. This year, is offering deals to Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, St. Maarten, Turks & Caicos and more, starting as low as $349," as explained in a recent blog post on travel booking giant What's more, after 2017's devastating hurricanes, Irma and Maria, the islands of the Caribbean depend on tourism more than ever to bring in much-needed economic activity.

"Black Friday and Cyber Monday are always popular days to search for travel in general, so if you've been on the hunt for a travel deal or vacation package, we've historically seen these two days offer some great money-saving options," further notes David Solomito, Vice President Marketing, KAYAK North America. "For those looking to trade in the snow and cold for sun and sand, is offering some great deals to Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica (which snagged the #5 spot on KAYAK's New Year's Eve trending list), Turks & Caicos and more starting as low as $349." / Presidential Suites Punta Cana
