Those sweet summer tan lines are fading fast and the forecast for flurries is around the next corner. Right about now a blast of balmy weather could do a New Yorker good. Turns out that it’s precisely the time to stash a bathing suit, a book and a beach towel (seriously, why overpack?) in a bag and hightail it to the Caribbean.
The sandy white stretches and pale blue lagoons in this island idyll are basically in the city’s backyard, and a boatload of autumn deals and packages will get you there before sky-high winter prices kick in.
Which Caribbean locale to choose? That depends on what you’re after — family fun, romantic romp, gourmet getaway, something else? It’s all out there.
