The deal
School’s out for summer! But if you’re looking for a peaceful getaway sans the exuberant shrieks and enthusiastic cannonballing of delightful children, read on. We searched adult-only properties along Mexico’s fabulous beaches participating in Expedia’s Book Early and Save promo. What we found are exquisite air/hotel combos from $584! To claim substantial savings of almost 30 percent, be sure to finalize all arrangements thirty days in advance of your desired departure. Traveling in August? Book ASAP.

Los Cabos package from $584
What could be more soothing than staring at the ocean from a king-size cabana on a secluded beach? Perhaps this deal at Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Holistic Retreat and Spa: Four nights’ accommodation plus airfare for only $584! Included in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2008 Gold List, the 154-room, smoke-free hotel does not permit children younger than 16 years old. Surfside cabanas are available for rent. Fly midweek from Los Angles in September for the best prices. Starting rates run $767 for August travel, and $602 in October.

Air/hotel in Puerto Vallarta from $776
For a tranquil stay in Puerto Vallarta, we like Villa Premiere Hotel and Spa. The beachfront property, exclusively for guests 16 years old and up, sits just north of the city’s boardwalk on Bahía de Banderas. Choose-your-own-essence guest room aromatherapy and an oxygen bar are among the amenities at this 83-room resort. Book a month ahead and you’ll save 27 percent! A four-night visit plus September roundtrip airfare from Los Angeles is as a low as $776. August prices start at $834 and rise to $850 for October travel.

Playa del Carmen package from $730
If you prefer the Riviera Maya, consider Playa del Carmen’s adult-only Magic Blue Hotel & Lounge. The 45-room thatched-roof property is just one block off the town’s main pedestrian drag full of restaurants, shops and entertainment, and within three blocks of the Caribbean Sea. As a perk, beach club access and breakfast buffet are complimentary. The rate for four nights in September, plus airfare to Cancun, is a delightful $730! Booking early saves you 25 percent off your stay. Based on midweek travel from Chicago, the same package runs from $737 in October.
