Now that the Fourth of July has passed and the blues have set in, it’s time to think of the future. The last week of July brings several promising deals for international flights.

If you’re looking to stay within the States, Southwest Airlines is offering one-way tickets as low as $73. Book your flight by July 16 to enjoy a vacation in late summer or during the winter. 

Houston to Grand Cayman, Cayman Island, from $476
Outbound flight: Monday, July 27 | Inbound flight: Thursday, July 30

A three-day trip is not nearly enough to explore the gorgeous Grand Cayman, but while on your mini vacation, stop at Stingray City, where you can hang out with dozens of stingrays in the clear waters of the Caribbean. Spend your evening at Cayman Spirits Co. Distiller for a tour and drinks.

Houston to Toronto, Canada, from $586
Outbound flight: Monday, July 27 | Inbound flight: Saturday, August 1

Trip Advisor has compiled 937 reasons to tour Toronto, but we recommend putting St. Lawrence Market at the top of your list. It was named the world’s best market by National Geographic in 2012, and for a good reason: it’s filled with wonderful foods you can’t get anywhere else.

Houston to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, from $450
Outbound flight: Tuesday, July 28 | Inbound flight: Monday, August 3

We’ve recently told you about Cancun, Mexico City and San Jose del Cabo. Puerto Vallarta is another great option for Mexico travel, with its scenic El Malecon boardwalk, Zona Romantica restaurant district and Vallarta Botanical Gardens.
