Our Travel-Expert-in-Residence, Rudy Maxa, liked this deal so much when it was made available last year, he's telling us about it again -- so, you can snag it now!

The Puerto Rico Tourism Company is offering U.S. travelers free airfare to and from Puerto Rico between September 1 and November 1, if you book a minimum 5-night stay through a participating tour operator.

But don't worry, the hotels are not jacking up their rates to compensate for the free plane ticket...

The free airfare is good from the New York area, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Miami, Chicago, Dallas-Ft. Worth and Boston airports. Keep in mind, there's a maximum of two free tickets, and you have to book a double room at the hotel. If you book a single room, you'll only get one ticket.

So, get hopping because you only have one week to book this deal: August 18th through August 25th. And, remember, this is for travel between September 1st and November 1st.
