Nonstop Flights From Minneapolis To The Caribbean

If there's one thing that's true about Minneapolis, Minnesota, it's that the city is bitterly cold for several months out of the year. Unsurprisingly, Minneapolis is considered one of the country's coldest states, and in the winter, temperatures typically fall below zero. Needless to say, swimming in one of Minneapolis's lakeside beaches is out of the question for a better part of the year. However, you can free yourself from this numbing weather with a vacation on a popular Caribbean island via a nonstop flight from Minneapolis-St Paul International Airport (MSP). 


Minneapolis couldn't be any more different than the Caribbean. With its sunny weather, blue skies, and even bluer water, the Caribbean is heaven on earth. Although it's never a bad idea to plan a trip to the Caribbean, the one time of the year you may want to skip out on visiting is hurricane season (June to late November). 

Nevertheless, the first step to paradise is to book a nonstop flight departing from MSP to the Caribbean. MSP is located in Saint Paul but, as its name suggests, also serves Minneapolis. While the Caribbean might feel like a faraway dream, you can fly to an assortment of locations directly from the Twin Cities in under six hours.
