With spring rapidly approaching, better weather and longer days are on the horizon. The new season brings new opportunities to travel — and there’s no better reason to take a vacation than spring break. Of course, the spring break of your adult years is largely different than the spring break of your youth. If you work full-time, chances are you want to save a good chunk of your vacation time to use throughout the rest of the year. A good way to still take a break this spring but also conserve your vacation time is to take a micro-cation: For instance, head somewhere for a weekend plus two business days. Four nights in paradise will still leave you feeling rested and rejuvenated, minus the stress of wondering how much time off you’ll still be able to request come November and December. 

Thanks to travel booking sites like Travelocity, there are more than a few great deals for a micro-cation floating around the internet for spring. Case in point: This amazing vacation package that includes a round-trip flight and a four-night stay at the five-star Iberostar Paraiso Del Mar All-inclusive resort just outside of Cancún, Mexico in the Riviera Maya for a total of only $732.

The deal is so cheap thanks to Travelocity booking it for you as a package. You’re essentially only paying for four nights in the hotel, and getting 100 percent off on the price of your flight. The cost of booking this same trip separately would be over $1,000, so you’re saving nearly $300. This specific deal is for travel in May, but you’ll be able to find similar savings for this property no matter what set of dates you choose.

Considering the resort is all inclusive, booking a room will include meals and beverages at on-site dining establishments. Iberostar Paraiso Del Mar also features a spa, a golf course, pool and beach-side massages, and a dive center where you can get certified to go scuba diving or even turtle watching. The price will book you a standard room for four nights with either two double beds or one king-sized bed, although for just $14 more per night, you can upgrade to a junior suite. 

It literally sounds like a little slice of heaven on earth, and there’s no better time than spring to enjoy it. Weather-wise, Cancún tends to be between 80 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit in the spring, which is pretty much ideal lay-on-the-beach-and-drink-piña-coladas weather. (It’s even better when those piña coladas are part of your all-inclusive resort booking.)

You can check out the deal, as well as more about the resort and specific flight options, on Travelocity. In the meantime, we’ll be over here... immediately booking this trip right now.

To book:, $732 (originally $1,005)
