Want to go somewhere hot without having to max out your credit card?
Hit one of these 5 affordable destination getaways, as determined by HuffPost Travel's Brandon Presser in a recent segment with HuffPost Live's Alicia Menendez and Marc Lamont Hill.
According to Presser, travelers who want to get away without leaving the States should consider the U.S. Virgin Islands, which don't require U.S. citizens to present a passport to enter.
Alternatively, those feeling slightly more adventurous may also consider visiting Saba, a small island in the northeast Caribbean that is easily accessible via a flight to St. Maarten.
Other getaways that can be had on the cheap: the Baltic Riviera, Nicaragua and Thailand.
