Just the thought of even an inch of snow gives me hives at this point. But being from Florida, a "snow hurricane" sounds a little bit more like my kinda thing. Not really. When faced with this type of winter, the only sane thing to do is to escape to the Caribbean.
CheapCaribbean.com has just the means for this getaway with its 99-Hour "Not Your Usual Spring Break" Sale. These are places where families are welcomed - places where you won't see the usual spring break shenanigans, at least according to Caribbean Jim. (I have not verified this, so if your 8-year-old sees something that scars him for life, please don't blame me.)
I checked out a couple of 4-day vacations, including air, and figured a good place to start would be St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, where you can drop in without a passport. The Marriott Frenchman's Reef and Morning Star Beach Resort starts at $768.94 per person for a 4-day stay, including airfare from BWI, beginning March 22. There's also the Wyndham Rio Mar Beach Resort & Spa in Puerto Rico, for just $529 per person, including nonstop flight on American Airlines. If you prefer to hit Cancun (passport required), where the shenanigans are surely easy enough to find, the Riviera Resort & Spa offers a tropical suite for four nights starting at $829 per person.
To get these absolute lowest sale prices, you need to use a promo code. But here's the deal: there are only 99 promo codes available for each package. But the cool thing about CheapCaribbean.com is that it shows you how many promo code bookings remain for each resort destination. Double occupancy is required. Sale ends Friday. By then, we could have 6 inches of snow on the ground.
