Paradise Island, Bahamas
Where to sleep: Rates at the retreat range from $59 (tent space) to $139 (double room). Theres also a charge of $15 to $29 a day for the yoga program. Meals are included. At nearby Atlantis 888-877-7525, www.atlantis.com), the most affordable option is the Beach Tower (starts at $199).
Other tips: Peak season starts in mid-December, so traveling in early or mid-fall can save you significant cash. Autumn is also the tail end of hurricane season, but with more storms typically hitting the US mainland than the Bahamas each year, the reward often outweighs the risk.
