There must be some good reasons why Mexico receives over 40 million tourists around the year. The cradle of many ancient civilizations, most notably Aztec and Mayan civilizations, Mexico has long been famous for its splendid archaeological sites. Tulum, Teotihuacan, Chichen Itza---these are just a few of the fascinating ruins that you will loathe missing once you're in Mexico.
Mexico also holds special attractions for its tourists thanks to its many colonial cities such as Puebla, Guanajuato or Oaxaca-places that will give you more than a good idea of the country's colonial past.
And last but not the least, the country is full of scenic waterfronts and pristine beach towns (Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel, Tulum... to name but a few!) that offer opportunities to enjoy perfect relaxing beach holidays.
Booking a Mexican Vacation
Now, with such a wide variety of options available, fixing an itinerary for your next Mexican vacation may appear somewhat overwhelming. However, that's where travel agents and various dedicated travel clubs can be of help to you. Some of the travel clubs that offer best deals on Mexican vacations include Royal Holiday Vacation Club, FunJet Vacations, Journey Mexico and Costco Travel.
Typically, you need to be a member of these clubs to reap the highest benefits from their various travel plans. Having a membership is a good idea since that helps you get discounted rates on many activities such as guided tours, rental cars, using luxury facilities such as spa and Jacuzzi, access to golf and tennis courts, cruise facilities and so on.
However, if you choose to book your Mexico vacation through a travel club, we suggest that you compare the various package deals offered by clubs or other travel agents. You can do this by visiting major travel booking websites such as Travelocity or Expedia. Click on the link "Mexican Vacation Packages" and you'll find a list of different packages offered by different companies.
And once you narrow down your choices, read carefully all the details of the package. See what is included in the package and what are not. You'll also find many "All-inclusive" packages that typically cover all the major costs such as airfare, hotel stay, sightseeing, and others. So, make sure to check carefully what exactly is included in a particular package and what other activities are there for which you'll need to pay from your own pocket. You can get between the towns on the Cancun to Tulum shuttle.
While booking everything on your own can be a somewhat painstaking process, we still recommend that you pay particular attention to the airfare. Most U.S. and Canadian airlines offer huge discounts on their Mexican destinations (especially beach destinations), so there is a good chance that if you book your airline ticket on your own, you'll get to save some pretty dollars in the process. You can find some of the best airline deals in the months of October and November.
Royal Holiday Vacations Packages
Among the travel clubs we've mentioned above, the Royal Holiday Vacation Club arguably offers some of the best Mexican vacation deals for their members. In recent years, Royal Holiday has come to be an industry leader in the international tourism scene and as such, they have affiliations with some of the most famous international hospitality venues, resort chains, cruise facilities, and club developments. And this enables the company to offer some great discounts on a host of different activities that you can enjoy while over in Mexico. If you're on a budget, their deals may not be too suitable for your purpose. However, if you're really looking forward to a splendid and sumptuous Mexico vacation, Royal Holiday Cancun has some more-than-exciting deals on offer!
