Grab some Caribbean

Don't just dream of that Caribbean vacation, take it.

Name: www.cheapcaribbean.com

What it is: A site that offers spur-of-the-moment types discount packages for big-name resorts.

What's hot: The "Budget Beach Finder" button, which selects packages for you based on your budget. From Philadelphia, three nights with airfare to a golf resort in Puerto Rico was advertised at $589 per person. It also has reviews from others, culled into a 1-to-5 scale. Many deals expire quickly, adding pressure to decide. Still, the site also is alluring for the snowbound and deskbound, with enticing photos of gorgeous resorts in hot places.

What's not: The price quoted is just the beginning. By the end of my booking, the $589 per person was $687.10 - I added travel protection. Still not a bad price.
