Let’s start with JetBlue’s $295 non-stop fares from New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Owen Roberts International Airport (GCM) in Grand Cayman. This is JetBlue’s most restrictive fare, so you don’t even get a full-size handbag. A bag check will cost $60 round-trip. Here’s one example we found a week before Thanksgiving.
There is good availability at this price in January and February, which is a good time to head south and escape the freezing temperatures of New York.
Want to free yourself from the stress of the holidays? A trip to the Cayman Islands can do the trick. You can book a ticket with Cayman Airlines from Miami International Airport (MIA) to Grand Cayman and spend Christmas week there. Grand Cayman is a great family beach destination.
United has flights from Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) to the Cayman Islands after New Years Eve for $309 one way. This itinerary has a stop in Newark each way, and a bag check will cost $65.
We promised you some discounted fares from the West Coast, so here’s a United Airlines flight itinerary from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Grand Cayman in November for $383 round trip.
American has a basic economy ticket from Los Angeles to the Cayman Islands in February for $380, which is another good price for this route.
