DEAL ALERT: Delta to Puerto Rico
This is the off-peak season for travel to Puerto Rico (I should know; I have to charge rock-bottom rates for my own rental condo in San Juan this month), and Delta Vacations has unveiled some pretty attractive package deals that include accommodations at some of the island’s nicest hotels (I’ve visited all three of the properties mentioned below and can vouch that they’re worth a stay).
To get these special deals, all you need to do is book by August 31 and travel by October 30. A few sample sale prices:
• $532 for roundtrip airfare Minneapolis-San Juan, with three nights at the Hilton Ponce Golf & Casino Resort (a well-equipped resort with adjacent golf course, just outside of the lovely historic city of Ponce)
• $553 for roundtrip airfare New York JFK-San Juan, with four nights at the El San Juan Hotel & Casino, including a $25 match play casino coupon (this hotel recently joined the Waldorf-Astoria Collection and has great amenities)
• $592 for roundtrip airfare Detroit-San Juan, with five nights at the Conrad Condado Plaza (one of the hippest hotels, thanks to a recent makeover)
These are just a few samples of excellent deals available at great hotel properties; visit Delta Vacations for additional package specials from other destinations. (And if you don’t see what you like, check some of the advertising links right on this blog for competitive deals!) Also, be sure to check out my reviews and videos of San Juan at LatinFlyer.com.
