Are you looking for the cheapest international destinations to fly to this winter?
These are the perfect places to go for a warm and sunny getaway!
According to recent data from flight booking platform Skyscanner, these are the cheapest destinations abroad for American travelers to fly to based on the average cost of a round-trip plane ticket.
Keep in mind that this is the average flight price from all cities in the U.S., and your geographic location will have an influence over whether you can get a cheaper (or more expensive) flight.
For example, for travelers located on the East Coast, flights to Cancun will be cheaper, while for travelers on the West Coast, flights to Puerto Vallarta and San Jose del Cabo will be cheaper.
7. Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic: $460
One of the most affordable destinations to visit right now is Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Santo Domingo is one of the Dominican Republic’s three main international airports, and it’s located close to the historic capital city.
While most people visit the Dominican Republic for its affordable all-inclusive resorts, flying into the capital can save you money compared to flying into Punta Cana, which is where many resorts are.
Santo Domingo is one of the best Caribbean capitals, thanks to its blend of history, culture, a lively atmosphere, and beautiful colonial architecture, making it a great place to start or end your trip.
6. Puerto Vallarta, Mexico: $460
Another affordable getaway this winter is Puerto Vallarta. Located on the Pacific Coast of Mexico, Puerto Vallarta is having a record-breaking year for tourism.
Many travelers love Puerto Vallarta for a number of reasons: it has great beaches, there are tons of things to do, it’s LGBTQ-friendly, and it’s known as one of the top wellness destinations in Mexico.
5. Bogota, Colombia: $440
Bogota is a destination that always has a lot of cheap flights, making Colombia the most accessible South American destination from the United States. It’s also a very cheap place to travel once you arrive.
