Expedia.com is putting Cancun on sale this winter. 🙂 Book your vacation by September 18 and travel between December 24 and April 8 for savings of up to 63 percent on airfare. There are around a dozen hotels offered in this promotion, including several four and five-star properties. Exact rates vary by your departure city, the dates you travel and the hotel you select. To give you an idea of the prices, here are some representative prices I just found available for two persons traveling January 20-27, 2012 and staying at the Krystal hotel in the resort area:

  • Atlanta – $599 per person
  • Dallas – $629 per person
  • Chicago – $637 per person
  • New York City – $677 person

These prices include seven nights’ accommodations at the beachfront Krystal Resort in Cancun, all hotel taxes and service charges and roundtrip airfare from the cities listed on American Airlines. Transportation to and from the airport, meals and airport taxes are additional.
