If you feel the urge to spread your wings, fly the coop and head south of the border for an Escape to Puerto Vallarta — named Best Mexican Vacation in 2010 by US News & World Report.

Bring your chickadee and roost for four nights at the beachside Villa del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa for $879. (Must book within seven days of purchase.)

After a welcome cocktail, migrate to your Deluxe Room, which features a marble bathroom, dining area and furnished terrace. Be among the first 50 purchasers and receive a free upgrade to a Junior Suite. Bring a pair of fine-feathered friends along, and they can book a room for the same nights of stay for just $240 (not including meals or other Escape Kit items).

Peck around the resort's fitness centre and tennis courts or recline by the spacious pool with views of Banderas Bay. You'll enjoy access to all non-motorized water sports and daily activities.

Your all-inclusive package covers all meals and drinks on the property. Early birds can start with breakfast at the casual buffet-style restaurant La Cucina, then fill up on surf and turf at Jalisco Teq and Sushi Restaurant for dinner. When you need a break from the beach, perch yourself at Los Equipales Sports Bar and have an ice-cold cerveza.

Hop aboard an included Marigalante Pirate Excursion for two, where you'll become part of the swashbuckling show while enjoying cocktails and food on a cruise along the coast. Back on land, you and your lovebird can flit to Bay Breeze Spa for an included 55-minute beachfront massage. Night owls will enjoy evening entertainment such as themed shows and beach barbecues.

Leave the nest and fly into town for an afternoon of free-range fun. You can catch live street performances along the Malecón boardwalk or shop for silver jewellery at the famous outdoor mercado. If you don't mind getting your feathers wet, explore the underwater world of Los Arcos National Marine Park on a dive trip with Vallarta Under Sea.

For a bird's-eye view of paradise, take this flight of fancy to the Mexican Riviera.
