Exceptional Fares PVD-CUN/BOS-CUN

Some amazing fares have popped up the last few days for December travel if you can take advantage of them. PVD-CUN is currently as low 320USD SWA and BOS-CUN was at @260 non-stop on JB and 280 with decent connections on SWA (all r/t total cost)-others may be comparable but haven't looked any further. Haven't seen fares this low since the swine flu matter years ago- don't know if they are having a sell off before the wall goes in or before open borders kick in

Got mine for 12/5-12/15 - woot!woot!

This will be the third or fourth year I'll be in town to greet the mayor on his annual return.
Was just thinking about pozole at Dona Paula as we had our first frost the other night. Need to make some plans and wake Al up before too long.
And those airfares are round-trip with all fees etc included - really lowest I've seen since the flu scare years ago.

Hey Hobbes, I am up..........up north in Boca Raton. Headed early this morning to the Washington, D.C. area. Headed back to Playa November 8th right after I vote. I was going to "early vote" yesterday until I saw how long the line was
Dona Paola for pozole or I found a new place that "specializes" in pozole up on AV. 30

Only a 10 day trip, but it doesn't have to be either/or as their should be time to try them both.
IIRC you had some travels pending for December as well- will you be in town form the 5th-15th?

Nothing planned yet for December. Well maybe a trip to Mexico City and Taxco. I will be traveling/away much of January though.

That's fine - won't be back after that until February 11 so you should be able to squeeze in a few side trips


Just checked JB and the under $270 R/T is still available on several dates through December.

Wow! Those are great fares for sure- too bad we booked some time ago and paid much more. Yes- the year of the swine flu- I remember we flew in and out of COZ that year for about $250/RT from BOS.

That was the first year we ever made a fall trip in addition to our usual Feb or March dates. Have done so every year since then- several around Halloween( which I loved but the weather could be dicey) and the rest in early December. Was going to pass this year but then saw those fares and had to make it work. Still looking for digs but that is fairly easy as it is kind of a dead time between the holidays.

Yes, and I am trying to remember where I bought that giant flask. Hard to hide it in your pants though.....to big of a bulge
