Tropical Paradise at Budget Prices

February 10, 2012

best budget beach getaway

Looking for a Valentine's Day or February Getaway? There is something about this time of year that makes me want to run away to a tropical paradise...especially when I lived on the East Coast or Midwest. The first snow was always exciting in November, but the cold, and dreariness got really old by February or March making me dream about an escape.

We will soon be headed to tropical Asia, but this photo was taken at a favorite spot of mine in the Florida Keys near Key West. This is Bahia Honda, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It's a favorite spot with locals, but most tourists miss this gem.

I once flew from New York City to this little heaven, abandoning the snow and rush of city life, for a cheap, glamping stay in my tent, right on this world class beach. They also have cabins available with kitchens if that is more your style.

Dreaming of a beach holiday on a tiny budget?

That's really a breathtaking scenery!Great way to unwind and relax to the fullest.


How recently have you camped there? The website says it closes at sunset, but perhaps they are casual about it? I would LOVE to camp there!!!!

Bahia Honda is a wonderful place to camp Lisa! Look again at the website, we were just there this fall and we didn't camp there, but we talked to folks who were camping there and we went to the very campsite right on the beach where I had camped long ago!
