Every few weeks here, I round up some of the best air travel deals I can find.
Want to visit the Pacific? Alaska Airlines has an insanely good deal to Hawaii. They are advertising $169 one-way fares from Seattle, Washington or Portland, Oregon. You need to buy your tickets before June 3, and you must travel between July 3 and September 30. If you play your cards right, you can fly to Hawaii and back for a total of about $360 after taxes and fees, round trip.
Also, Air Tahiti Nui is advertising round-trip fares, after taxes and fees, of about $731 between Los Angeles and Tahiti, but it’s for a maximum stay of four days only.

Johnny Depp’s been on the Puerto Rico set of “The Rum Diary” for about a month now, and interest is building in the film, an adaptation of an early Hunter S. Thompson novel. The story follows journalist Paul Kemp (played by Depp) as he flees New York City for a small newspaper on the island, where hard drinking and treacherous expat intrigues ensue.

Even residents of nearby Guánica, Puerto Rico have to leave the comfort of their living rooms to actually visit Gilligan’s Island. Getting there, however, is as easy as a short ferry ride—no three-hour tour necessary. One of many mangrove cays located about a mile off the southwestern coast, this uninhabited island lures droves of snorkelers and sunbathers year round. As a part of the larger Guánica Biosphere Reserve (UNESCO has established 482 biosphere reserves worldwide), Gilligan’s Island and its surrounding subtropical dry forest illustrate our potential to successfully find a balance between conservation and development, ensuring the existence of this Caribbean attraction for decades to come.
