How much money? That will vary WILDLY depending on your travel style, experience and skills.

The Caribbean is quite expensive, flights are a lot of money and travelling by sea is sporadic at best. Many of the islands themselves are very expensive.

That said, there are fabulous places to visit... Cuba has one of the most complicated and interesting political/social situations in the world with a very vibrant arts/music culture. Tiny off-the-beaten path places like Providencia Island are gems for someone who wants to really, really kick back.

Have fun with your research.

Cheers,
Terry

Quite frankly with the exception of Cuba and a handful of other destinations I personally don't find that the Caribbean offers much of interest... many of its almost 30 countries/territories/protectorates/etc. are quite similar.

Considering the expense/hassle of travel between islands I think you get way better bang-for-the-buck in Mexico and Central/South America, but that's just me...

Have fun.
