How are you all dealing with the increased pricing of flights/lodging while traveling solo?

I like to go to PR to just chill out by the beach by myself, or even Cancun at a resort. But the prices now have gone astronomically high . Cancun is expensive.

I try to go to these places because either the dollar has a good conversion rate, or it’s just inexpensive in general . I was born in NYC so I’m a citizen of the US, but I find that traveling within the US is cost prohibitive as well.

I’m looking to take a solo trip just so I can get some sun, and put on a few pounds eating like calories don’t matter. But at this rate just going to PR for 5 days would be damn near 1k even with a cheap airbnb.
