Are you looking for the cheapest international destinations you can fly to this fall?
According to data from Priceline, these are the top international destinations with the cheapest flights for American travelers right now.
Unsurprisingly, all of these destinations are in the Caribbean, Mexico, or Central America. The shorter distance compared to far-flung destinations like Europe or Asia means better prices on international flights for American travelers.
These are the destinations to check out if you’re looking for cheap international flights this fall:
1. Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic: $367
The cheapest international destination to fly to from the U.S. right now is Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, with the average cost of airfare at $367 round-trip.
The Dominican Republic is breaking tourism records in 2023, in part because of the high number of direct flights from the U.S. to popular destinations.
Santo Domingo, the country’s capital city, is the cheapest place to fly into if you’re staying at one of the many beach resorts in La Romana or Punta Cana. The city itself is also worth a visit if you’re interested in history and culture.
2. Santiago, Dominican Republic: $397
Another one of the cheapest international destinations to fly to right now is Santiago. This is another city in the Dominican Republic that is closer to the popular beach destination of Puerto Plata.
Although Puerto Plata has its own international airport, flights are often more expensive from the United States. Flying into Santiago can save you money, and then it’s only a one-hour drive to Puerto Plata.
Overall, the Dominican Republic is also one of the cheapest destinations in the Caribbean when it comes to hotels, food, and activities, making it perfect for a budget-friendly tropical getaway.
3. Cancun, Mexico: $421
Cancun is the number one most popular international destination with American travelers, so it’s no surprise that it also has some of the cheapest flights from the United States.
There are more than 40 cities across the U.S. offering direct flights to Cancun, making it one of the most accessible international destinations.
Travelers flock to Cancun because of its fun-loving party atmosphere, great beaches, and abundance of resorts and hotels. There are also many other unique activities to do around Cancun, like visiting ancient Mayan ruins or swimming in a jungle cenote.
4. San Jose, Costa Rica: $452
Costa Rica is known for being one of the leading destinations in Central America. It’s beautiful, offering more biodiversity than almost any other country on Earth. You can find beaches, jungles, volcanoes, and more in Costa Rica. It’s also one of the safest countries in Latin America.
And the average cost of a round-trip flight from the U.S. to San Jose is just $452 right now.
If you want a vacation that will allow you to relax and get back to nature, Costa Rica is one of the best places to go. Some of the most popular activities in Costa Rica include wildlife spotting, surfing, hiking to waterfalls, and adventure activities like ziplining.
5. Los Cabos, Mexico: $486
Finally, Los Cabos is one of the most affordable international travel destinations right now when it comes to airfare. Travelers flying from the West Coast of the United States will find cheaper fares to Los Cabos since it’s located on Mexico’s Baja Peninsula.
Air connectivity between the U.S. and Los Cabos is higher than ever, and this destination is currently breaking all-time tourism records.
Travelers love Los Cabos because it’s known for being a great destination for wellness and relaxation. It doesn’t have the same high-energy vibe as Cancun, but there’s still plenty to do.
