After several trips to the Florida Keys the biggest question we get is how to visit the Florida Keys for cheap. “What’s an affordable hotel in Key West?” or “What key should we stay on for cheap?” Here’s a plan for an affordable Florida Keys vacation that is budget friendly and also tons of fun.
If we’re missing a topic or don’t answer your question in this post about doing an inexpensive Florida Keys trip, send me a note and I’ll get you set up with the best budget information possible.
Whenever you budget for any vacation, you have to keep four things in mind:
- Transportation – flights / rental car / gas
- Hotels – lodging / vacation rental / resort
- Food – 3 meals a day and snacks
- Activities – cheap things to do are great, but big ticket fun is also nice
We tend to set a lump sum budget before we dedicate to our destination, and then if we can make our ideal vacation destination work we will fit it to our budget. The Florida Keys budget is an example of setting a total amount and then tailoring your plan to fit it.
