New York to San Juan, Puerto Rico
Delta Airlines has non-stop flights from New York to San Juan, Puerto Rico, starting at ~$250 round-trip.
Travel until the end of September, 2015. I was still able to find lots of open seats!
These flights are direct, so you get on the plane in New York, and get out in Puerto Rico! Perfect for a spur-of-the-moment beach vacation!
Note: You can cancel a Delta reservation within 24 hours of booking and get a full refund.
And if you pay with the Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express, you’ll earn 2X Delta miles per $1 spent on Delta flights!

Be aware Norwegian Airlines charges baggage fees based on where you’re flying, as well as other fees typical of a budget airline. So run the numbers before you book to make sure it’s a good deal for you!
Travel for limited dates in February, 2016. Be sure to book on the Norwegian version of the website to get the deal. See the Secret Flying deal page for more details!
