We love Carnival. But sometimes, you can get to a point where you want to take a break and do something different. So what are you to do when you bypass costume registration and not feeling the fete vibe?


While flights into Trinidad and Tobago are at a premium in the weeks leading up to Carnival, there are tons of really great outbound flight deals. Some of these deals are for Carnival itself, but there are others that you can score just before or just after the season ends, which means that you have something else to look forward to.

Here’s a list of alternative countries where you can pump for the Carnival season.*


1. St. John's, Antigua for $641 from February 20 – February 22


2. Kingston, Jamaica for $600 from February 7 – February 11


3. San Jose, Costa Rica for $621 from February 9 – February 22


4. Miami, Florida for $271 from February 22 – February 27


5. Kingstown, St. Vincent and the Grenadines for US$317 from February 9 – February 14


6. Punta Cana, Dominican Republic for US$455 from February 20 – February 27 with an 11-hour layover in Panama City or book for US$677 with an hour and a half layover. 


7. Cancun, Mexico for US$554 from February 20 – February 27 with a 13-hour layover in Panama City or book for $US677 with an hour and a half layover.
