The trouble with going to the Bahamas in winter is the weather. In January and February you will get a succession fo cold fronts bring strong winds and cool temps.

If you want warm in winter then I would say the Virgins are the way to go Spirit Air out of Fort Lauderdale is cheap esp if you get one of their specials and the Charter boat rates are about the same as Florida and the Bahamas.

But you will get stickershock in the supermarket when you stock up ! Still the local rum is good and you can bring condiments not clothes when you pack.

Belize

You might want to think about charter bareboat saiiling Belize out of Placencia. Though there isn't much civilization, you can arrange a side trip to Tikal in Guatemala to see incredible Mayan ruins.

Consider Sea of Cortez

Just thinking that if you're looking for an alternative to the Caribbean with possibly the same travel time, take a look at charter bareboat sailing in Baja California out of La Paz. Provisioning would be cheap. I think they have good deals in winter. I was there the first week of December and it was still shorts and tee shirt weather. Not much sight seeing, but, unique sailing in the dessert and you might even see whales. La Paz has some tourist action and then there's always Cabo. Might be your most inexpensive option.
