While the winter of 2012-13 hasn't been particularly snowy to-date, the Twin Cities and Minnesota is experiencing plenty of cold and blustery weather that makes a vacation to a Mexican beach resort very enticing. And, since we know in mid-January, that at least two and perhaps even three months of winter remains, now is the time to make your plans to get away so that you have some warm weather to anticipate in the not-too-distant future.
Hometown carrier Sun Country Airlines is offering some very enticing packages in March that are definitely worth considering. With the Minnesota economy on the rebound and the state's unemployment rate being a full two points below the national average, flights are filling up earlier than usual with vacationers who may have not had the financial means to afford a getaway last year.
Listed below are some very attractive packages from Sun Country Vacations, the carrier's in-house tour operation. Each includes non-stop round-trip flights from the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport, hotel accommodations with food and beverages at an all-inclusive beachfront resort, and all government taxes and fees. Prices below are per person, based on double occupancy.
