Tourist-friendly Cancun offers some of the biggest savings this holiday season. Christmas vacationers stand to save nearly 50 percent on roundtrip airfare ($364) compared to the same time last year.

MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica
Montego Bay has also emerged as an appealing Christmas destination. In addition to enhanced protocols for visitors, Jamaica is keeping tourism alive in the time of coronavirus thanks to resilient corridors and its travel insurance plan "Jamaica Cares".

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica
With an average temperature of 72 degrees, it's no wonder that many travelers have their sights set on Costa Rica this winter. The coveted Central American country began welcoming all U.S. residents and eliminated COVID-19 testing requirements. Visitors will still need to fill out a Health Pass questionnaire and show proof of medical insurance.

Visiting Colombia got a bit easier earlier this month when the country did away with its COVID-19 testing requirement. According to Hopper, Christmas travelers could save more than one-third (36 percent) on travel to Medellin compared to the same time last year.

San Juan, Puerto Rico
A U.S. territory that doesn't require Americans to have a passport, Puerto Rico will prove more challenging to visit this Christmas as travelers must complete a Travel Declaration Form and get a molecular COVID-19 test (nasal or throat swab) no more than 72 hours prior to arrival. Hopper reports that visitors could save as much as 40 percent compared to Christmas 2019.
