I go to Florida, get on a cruise ship and head out to sea almost every October.
We recently went down to Aruba, Curacao and Turks & Caicos for $279 plus port charges for 8 nights. Cannot be beat for a vacation value.
Fortunately, we can be in Central Florida in 10 hrs. driving. It's a $200 round trip to Orlando on Southwest Airlines, however.
The Caribbean has about as good of weather as there is in the world.
