Attention Minneapolis Travelers to Isla

We have been watching for reasonably priced airfare for our Thanksgiving vacation on Isla Mujeres. Fares were bouncing between $638 and over $1200, all of them with at least one stop. We finally happened upon a $515 fare on November 25 to December 4 via Sun Country with a stop in DFW. Just an FYI for those looking to spend Thanksgiving in Paradise.

I feel bad now complaining about paying $400 out of DFW. I will just hush, and be happy about my little 2 1/2 hr . flight from now on! :)

If I could get a $400 return flight to Isla I'd be going every month, $99 and I'd go every week-end. I just paid $1250 for one person so two of us going in February is just over $2500 not including lodging.

$2500? Wow, that's close to our entire vacation cost!

Note to self: Andrew Ladd is NOT reason enough to move to Winnipeg.

DMartin,

In all honesty, we could have gotten flights for under a grand each but we're flying first class.

Jonathan Toews is reason to move here, Winnipeg kid going to win you guys the cup this year. He's spends his summers here.
