OTPYM founder Michaela Guzy joined morning news show, WPIX 11 in NYC to share last minute deals for the upcoming holiday season.
For our sustainable sun worshiper, check out Los Cabos, Mexico. for a round-trip flight the week of Thanksgiving from Newark for only $453. You can take the family on sunset sail around El Arco, check out the local wildlife, like sea lions and baby sea turtles, snorkel or scuba dive in the lesser frequented Cabo Pulmo National Park or ride camels where the desert meets the Pacific Ocean. Camels in Mexico? Yes!
But if you are looking for a more traditional holiday getaway, picture perfect with white snow, head to the Vienna, Austria. Nothing says it’s the holidays like a European Christmas market, the waltz followed by a schnitzel at The Guest House. Micheala found a round-trip flight from JFK, Dec 13- 18 for $650.
If you want to avoid preparing an elaborate holiday meal, grab the family and road trip for a festive holiday getaway to the Poconos Mountains in Pennsylvania— just a two-hour drive from NYC.
