Have you tried American Airlines? They fly direct into San Juan, Puerto Rico from DFW. If you don't want to stay there you should be able to fly on from San Juan to any of the Virgin Islands direct, at least to St. Thomas, and also to St. Maarten - although they may be longer flights than you want, but I know that American services quite a few of the Carribean Islands after first stopping in San Juan. Wish I had your decision to make!

If you're not set on going to an "island", American Airlines also flys directly into Cancun, Mexico from DFW. <BR> <BR>-Christine

Check American. Dallas is one of its major hubs and there should be many places that you can go from there. Cancun is a short hop non-stop. You can be there for lunch.

American would definitely be your best bet to get to the Caribbean from DFW. However, they do not have direct service from DFW. You will have to connect in either Puerto Rico or Miami, but both of these are easy connections. <BR> <BR>If you're just going for 4 days, why not do Cancun? There are several brand-new, all-inclusive resorts down there, and they are all quite affordable. And as the previous posts mentioned, the flights are direct and quick! The beach is very beautiful, too!
