If you're a New Yorker, the cold has probably started getting to you. It's mid-winter, meaning two to three months of Canada Goose-worthy weather remain. So, in the spirit of getting into a tank top and bathing suit, we recommend a visit to the Caribbean, where sunny days, warm temperatures, crystal-clear water, and culture-pulsating towns await. The best part? It's all accessible in manageable three- to four-hour flight times from the East Coast and Midwest. Click through to learn about some of the region's chicest hotels that are perfect for escaping the current freezing conditions.
