Best Time to Buy: Spring Break Vacation

By Aaron Crowe, dealnews writer

If cabin fever hasn't set in at your house, it probably will soon. After months of being cooped up inside to stay far from the cold, now is a good time to plan a spring break vacation and escape the doldroms of winter weather.

Here are some current deals in various price ranges to at least get your mind on vacation. These were valid as of early Tuesday morning, but be aware that such deals expire fast, so check for validity before buying.

Las Vegas
With rates starting at $99 a night, BookIt.com is offering stays at the Palms Place Hotel and Spa at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. The deal includes free admission to the Playboy Club or Moon nightclubs for two and free daily access to Drift Spa for two. It's the lowest total nightly rate we could find for this package by $80. It's valid for stays through Aug. 31, although blackout dates and additional taxes and fees apply.

Caribbean Cruise
Prices start at $898 ($449 per person with double-occupancy required) for a 7-night Caribbean cruise for two through Avoya Travel as provided by ShermansTravel.com. It's the lowest price per person we could find for similar cruises by $10. This cruise departs from San Juan, Puerto Rico, with stops in Saint Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands; Saint Kitts and Nevis, Basseterre; Roseau, Dominica, Saint George's and Grenada; and Scarborough, Trinidad and Tobago. Deal ends March 8.

Puerto Vallarta
Apple Vacations is offering a 3-night flight and hotel package for two at the Dreams Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, for $1,299.98, with double-occupancy required. That's $649.99 per person and the lowest total per person price we could find for this flight/hotel package to Cancun by $50. Act fast because travel must be booked by March 2 for travel through April 23.

A 3-day Disneyland Park Hopper Ticket is $169 from Disneyland Resort. It's a $17 savings and includes a free Magic Morning early-entry admission ticket for admission into selected attractions before the park opens to the general public on Sundays, Tuesdays, Thursdays or Saturdays. The Park Hopper gets you into both parks — Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. The ticket must be used before April 14 and expires 13 days after initial use. Up to eight tickets are allowed per person. The deal ends March 5.

At prices starting at $2,265.02 (which requires double-occupancy), this 6-night trip through European Destinations to Athens and Santorini as a flight and hotel package for two is an expensive spring break, but it's still a deal. At $1,132 per person, it's $133 less than our mention two weeks ago and the lowest per person price we could find for similar packages to Greece by $127. This package includes roundtrip airfare, a 3-night stay in Athens, travel between Athens and Santorini, 3-night stay in Santorini and hotel taxes. The deal ends March 8.
