Caribbean vacations don’t necessarily mean longs flights, missed connections and lengthy customs lines. If you’re looking for a hassle-free trip, consider Puerto Rico or the U.S. Virgin Islands, where passports aren’t required for Americans. Easily-accessible islands close to the East Coast include The Bahamas, Turks & Caicos, and the Dominican Republic. Or better yet, don’t even leave the mainland and check out some tropical resorts in Florida!

Here is a list of resorts found in these easy-to-reach destinations:
