Five affordable, under-the-radar beach towns in the Americas

The interior of Westpunt is equally interesting. A few miles from the lodge in Christoffel National Park ($10 entrance fee), you can hike to the top of Christoffel Mountain or follow other trails through a white tail deer sanctuary. Nearby is Shete Boka National Park ($2.50 entrance fee), a rocky strip of coastline where sea turtles come to lay their eggs.

Other places to stay:

If you're looking for a cheap, but pleasant place to stay, try Rancho El Sobrino Curacao, which has guestrooms and one- and two-bedroom apartments starting at $50 per night. There's an Internet cafe and a restaurant and bar on-site as well.

Getting there:

Round-trip April flights from Miami to Willemstad, Curacao, start at $294 round-trip, including taxes and fees, on American. From Willemstad you can rent a car or take a taxi (about $55 each way).
