Let's familiarize you with some of the most affordable Caribbean vacation spots that are sure to make your holiday a memorable and well-spent one.

Dominican Republic

You can without a doubt save big here. The Samana Peninsula: this beautiful natural paradise lies between Punta Cana and Puerto Plate, and, plays host to many of the country's resort towns. There's plenty you can do here.

Between $20 and $80 will get you a horseback ride in the mountains where you get to witness many of the coffee and cocoa plants, as well as the 120-foot El Limon waterfall.

A boat ride is also cheap and takes you to Los Haitises National Park or even the gorgeous white-sand beaches of Cayo Levantado. Bare witness to hundreds of migrating humpback whales as they calve and nurse in Samana Bay.

The Villa Serena Hotel in Las Galeras sets you back by just $150 or less per night, which includes breakfast.
