I agree with Ed, it is a surprise. If the survey survey respondents were travel folks who take Virgin or BA travel packages of two week packages, or the charterw then it is quite possible. 

I am surprised Cuba did not rank high, given its popularity with Canadian and European tourists.

All valid points, Hal. I guess I was surprised because every time I go to Barbados I feel surrounded by expensive hotels. But true, that big airport and eastern Caribbean location bring in the mass tourism crowd, as well.

@Ed Wetschler - it makes sense, here's why.  The #1-4 are getting the benefit of the North American mid-range travel market due to location and cheap air access.  Barbados at the eastern end of the region also gets its share due to being an air hub for both North American travelers but also a final destination for many UK and other European travelers who have direct air access. And the Barbados south coast mid-range hotels are priced to match.

Just out: the least expensive destinations in the Caribbean. #1-4 kind of make sense: Cancun, Negril, San Juan, and Puerto Plata. But look who comes in as #5: Barbados. Are you as surprised as I am?
