South Pacific Paradise
Recently hailed as one of the world's top island destinations by Travel + Leisure, Fiji is more affordable and accessible than you might think.
Its islands cater to those looking to splurge just as much as those on a budget, with the best deals typically unleashed September-November. Travelers also love that US$100 nets nearly FJD180.
Plus, it's an easy overnight flight from Los Angeles, which means waking up in a South Pacific paradise.
So go ahead: Ditch the office cubicle and toss the to-do list for an oceanfront bure in Fiji, where your only worry is remembering to apply the SPF.
