Why stop when you don't have to? At press time, nonstop flights to eight tropical island destinations, plus Mexico's Cancun, were available from Washington's three area airports; packages through such companies as Apple Vacations (800-517-2000, http://www.applevacations.com) and Liberty Travel (888-271-1584, http://www.libertytravel.com) also offer nonstop chartered flights to these locales. We compiled the carriers' flight schedules, en route times and contact information, as well as the lowest round-trip fares we could find online. (Fares include taxes and fees; all information is subject to change.)
