Planning your Winter getaway
If the Winter has you feeling like you need a vacation, you’re in luck. Jen Maki of Divine Destinations says it’s not too late plan your Winter getaway- even if it’s a little last minute, “People always ask me, ‘when’s the best time to book a vacation?’ And I always say, ‘Yesterday. Yesterday was the best time.'”
The prices are reflective of supply and demand. “So as the flights fill up… as the hotels fill up- the prices start to go up. The good news is that there are still some deals to be had out there that are fewer and farther between than any other year before.”
Jen did her research: “Leaving the Minneapolis area from about the 1st of January through Easter. I was able to find quite a few different package prices that included nonstop air from Minneapolis.” If you have a passport, these places are a great value.
There are five and seven night stays in Puerta Vallarta at $850 per person with airfare. And in Costa Mujeres, Jen has a deal for $1,200 a week per person with airfare “It’s not Playa del Carmen. It’s not Cancun, but it is very close to the marina so it makes it very to easy to take a daytrip.”
If you don’t have passport, there are some domestic options as well. San Diego has deals for $1,000 per person with airfare. Tampa is at about $1,700 per person with airfare. Jen notes that Florida is a little bit of challenge this year, crediting Hurricane Ian. Orlando and Cocoa Beach are would be other travel options in Florida.
“But I did actually find a really impressive package going to Honolulu, staying on Waikiki Beach at an iconic beach hotel anywhere from January 1st to April 30th from $1,250 per person with airfare,” Jen tells us.
