Deal of the Week: DC – Puerto Rico, $240 R/T through April 2013

This week’s deal: $240 R/T airfare to Puerto Rico from DC, or $211 R/T from Raleigh, NC, available for travel dates through April 2013. The weather will be nice enough to enjoy El Morro (below) without getting heatstroke, and you’ll have a chance to familiarize yourself with our future 51st state.

I’d highly recommend staying at the El Convento, which has the added benefit of hosting all-you-can-consume wine & cheese soirees every night from 5-7 pm. Another food discovery was the El Meson sandwich chain (corner of calle San Jose & calle San Francisco), which serves a phenomenal breakfast. Great drinks & excellent conch are served at Aureola (106 calle San Sebastian) in Old San Juan. NOTE: If you’re going strictly for beach time, you’ll want to stay on the beach, as getting there from Old San Juan can get annoying and expensive.
