Alaska Airlines Mexico all-inclusive 72-hour sale ends Friday, March 27

Alaska Airlines Mexico all-inclusive travel packages include Alaska Airlines flights to Mexico and three nights in an all-inclusive resort. You can book different lengths of stay, but the lowest rates are supposed to be for Monday departures and Thursday returns.

Alaska Airlines Mexico all-inclusive 72-hour sale ends March 27, 11:59pm Pacific time. This is the second time this week I have seen a 72-hour sale advertised that lasts four days.

Bottom line is the overall rates are $50 to $300 lower with this sale for Alaska Airlines flights and all-inclusive Mexico hotel than what I could piece together checking airfare and hotel rates separately for the same dates. The savings were small, about 5% to 20%.

Alaska Airlines will handle all your travel plans in one place and even throw in an extra 1,500 bonus miles for a Mexico all-inclusive package on top of actual air miles flown.

Alaska Airlines Mexico All-Inclusive Package Deals

 

Alaska Air Mexico package

San Francisco SFO – Los Cabos, Mexico SJD

Monday, May 11 – Thursday, May 14

Hotel: Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas All-Inclusive (3 nights)

Total Price: $1,498.11

Alaska Cabo Riu Palace package

Alaska Airlines package for Riu Palace Hotel offered Junior Suite Ocean View for a surcharge. Might as well see the ocean from your room if you are staying at a beach resort.

There are less expensive packages available, but this is one of the better rated hotels at a price only $250 more than other lower rated all-inclusive hotels in Los Cabos available with this Alaska Travel Package deal.

I compared the $1,498 price for the Alaska Travel Package to the price to book airline tickets and Riu Palace hotel separately.

Alaska Air flights purchased separately = $716.68.

Riu all-inclusive Cabo

Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas purchased through hotel website = $949.20 for junior suite with partial sea view or $1,108.80 for junior suite with sea view. Hard to tell which room matches Alaska Air package for junior suite with ocean view.

Either way the Alaska Travel package saves between $165 to $325 on the cost to book these same flights and Riu Palace hotel separately.

Alaska Air Mexico All-Inclusive Packages look like a real discount opportunity if a Mexico beach vacation is in your sights.
