Mexico: Don't miss out on the Deals!
With the world economy as it is these days a luxury vacation for many of us might have seemed like a distant dream, however, that 'distant dream', due to a twist in fate, can now be an incredibly affordable reality.
With the H1N1 A influenza all but over and practically no reported cases in Mexico's top tourist destinations, many of the large chains of hotels and resorts are offering deals at their luxurious properties that are, well, really out of this world. And they are so confident that there is no chance of you picking up the flu that they are even offering a ''Flu Free Guarantee'' where you'll receive one free vacation a year for 3 consecutive years of the same length if you do, in addition to the already deeply discounted prices (for the original traveler making the claim and one additional guest).
In the highly unlikely case that you do catch H1N1 A, you will need A REPORT FROM A CERTIFIED LAB stating that you contracted flu within 14 DAYS OF YOUR DEPARTURE from your Mexico destination.
Most of the major resort towns are currently relatively quiet, as you'd imagine, however this is the beautiful country of Mexico and you can be sure the tourists will be back soon, so don't miss out and book up quickly.
Just imagine yourself lying on the powdery white sand in Cancun and the Riviera Maya, a tropical cocktail or an ice cold corona in your hand, the warm sunshine giving you a perfect tan, and the cool waters of the Caribbean Sea washing away any memory of work or city life. Or perhaps you'd prefer to party the night away in one of Cancun's world famous nightclubs, such as everybody's favorite open-air club on the lagoon, Basic! Sounds pretty good to me! With the current low occupancy you can expect service like never before. Beach waiters catering to your every need, no cuing in restaurants, spa's just waiting for the chance to massage away any stress, and miles and miles of beautiful beach just for you.
If you are more a fan of the Pacific coast of Mexico, then don't worry, because many of the hotels and resorts in the exclusive destinations of Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos are also offering incredibly discounted rates. Here you'll have miles of golden coastline to take a romantic stroll on, or perhaps spending a day on the ocean waves deep sea fishing is more your thing. We also have to mention the spectacular manicured golf courses in both Cabos and Vallarta. Imagine it, no waiting for a tee time and no being held up by other golfers, just acres and acres of stunning fairways and greens for you and your friends to enjoy as fast or as slow as you want!
For many people a family vacation is a major expense that sends a shiver down their spine, but this year it really doesn't have to cost you and arm and a leg, as the great deals to be had in Mexico also extend to families. If you search around, you'll find deals where kids stay free, and all inclusive offers where children not only stay for free but they also eat and drink for free; it doesn't take a genius to work out that that's lots and lots of money saved! They can play all day in the pools or at the kids clubs, while you focus on perfecting the art of relaxation.
In total there are somewhere in the region of 5000 hotel rooms that are being offered at ridiculously cheap rates, so it shouldn't be too hard to find one that suits your needs. The prestigious hotel chain Real Resorts, with luxury properties in Cancun and Playa del Carmen, is currently offering up to a 40% discount off regular room rates and 50% discounts off spa services, private beach romantic dining, and premium liquors and wines. The service at all the Real Resorts, whether it's The Royal in Cancun or the Gran Porto Real in Playa del Carmen, is always exemplary, but now you have the added advantage of low occupancy too, ensuring you'll get the personal service you desire.
For families, they are offering a promotion called ''children stay and eat free'', valid at the Gran Caribe Real in Cancun or the Gran Porto Real in Playa del Carmen. When booking a Junior Suite two children 12 and under are free in their parent's suite, and when booking upper suite categories, such as the Family Suites or Gran Master Suites, up to three children stay and eat free. Additional special amenities include a complimentary ''swim with the dolphins'', a $139 USD value. You can find out more and the specific dates on the Real Resorts website.
AM Resorts, who operate the Dreams, Secrets and Zoetry brands of hotels, are also offering staggering discounts and a similar ''Flu Free Guarantee'' to Real Resorts. Among the offers, Zoetry Wellness & Spa Resorts has a Spring Escape that offers up to 37 percent savings while Secrets Resorts & Spas also has a Spring Escape that features discounts of up to 55 percent and a USD $200 resort credit. The Spring Escape at Dreams Resorts includes up to a 40 percent discount, a USD $250 resort credit, and kids stay free with two adults.
There are lots of other deals out there for the hotels in Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta and Acapulco, to name but a few of Mexico's top tourist destinations. It's definitely a good idea to reserve your vacation as quickly as possible in order to get the best prices because Mexico is already on the way up again. So if you want to escape the crowds and experience Mexico at its best then come on down... the corona's are on ice just waiting for you.
