    Hey Tuggers,

    Last minute planning here for Spring Break in PV.
    I can secure airfare but am having trouble finding a place to stay.
    I have checked DAE, II, Platinum Interchange, SFX all with no luck.
    Any suggestions for other Timeshare companies to try for bonus weeks or ?

    I dont usually plan so last minute but we were waiting for sons HS baseball schedule to book :)

    Thank you

    Now you know why you don't wait until last minute. Especially in Mexico for Spring Break. Might try Trading Places. Or VRBO for straight rentals.

    Are you going with your son? None of the timeshare places will let anyone under 21 check into their resorts without an adult with them. What's your exact dates?

    Yes, it is my husband and I and our 2 teen sons. Im quite a planner but just couldnt plan the unknown for Spring Break. Im sure the teens are fine with staying home and sleeping the entire Spring Break, but I am freezing and need some Sun and Sand.
    I'll look at TP, thx

    Just what week do you need? Spring break is different in various parts of the country.

    Easter is Sunday April 16 2017

    The week before and after Easter are Mexican National Holiday weeks .

    In the Vidanta / Mayan group(that I own) - those weeks are excluded from standard contracts
    and sold separately as Elite ( higher cost ) weeks . ( They float yearly with Easter)

    Good Luck

    If you want to go to Mexico , maybe try Cabo since it would require a plane flight for most Mexican Nationals and these are family vacations with lots of members so most drive .

    That will be hard to find because it coincides with Easter/Holy Week - huge Holiday time in Mexico - as big as Christmas/New Years.

    Spring Break here is in mid-March at most of our schools - coincides with the 9 week mark, not Easter. I thought that maybe there would be some last minute vacations out there if it was 3-4 weeks out.

    Good luck - I would try VRBO/HomeAway and Red Week like others have mentioned. Those would be your best bet and about the same cost as Getaway or Extra Vacations on II or RCI - much more expensive that a regular extra vacation.

    Go to Trading Places International and look for the Suite Deals on the pull down menu. It is under Hot Deals. These areas are for rentals and you do not need to be a member of TPI. There is a two bedroom at Lindo Mar and also a one bedroom there. Wonderful resort!! Little beach, small pool, restaurant and a short bus/cab to town. Check in is Saturday, so if you went on the 9th you would just need to tell them you are coming a day late. I would grab this! Sending you a PM as well.
