Want to guess which cities and countries made the list of the world's most overpriced destinations. Hint: The top pick has four letters and begins and ends with the same vowel. And no, it's not Ohio. #travel

Inspired by a recent trip to Anguilla, I dug deep to find the best ways to afford some of the Caribbean's most expensive islands.

You: barefoot on an empty white-sand beach. You: rubbing shoulders with celebrities on vacation. You: sipping a cocktail on St. Barts, Anguilla, or Virgin Gorda.
