Planning Ahead: The Best Time of Year to Book Your Mexican Christmas Vacation

October 12th, 2011

When it comes to planning international travel, it’s always best to do it a little in advance. Between making sure you have your passport and converting your money to reserving a spot at your favorite location, there’s quite a bit of work to do.

This is especially true when you plan a seasonal getaway (travel during Thanksgiving, Christmas, or other winter holidays). Because these are the most popular times to travel, it’s always better to ensure that you have your place reserved, paid for, and ready to go.

If you’re thinking about traveling to the Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa region, you may want to take a few days to explore the rich culture in Zihuatanejo. Although this is a largely tourist area, with plenty of shops and beaches to fill your days, there is also a varied and complex past to the region.

Traveling with Friends: The Perfect Accommodations

September 28th, 2011

Some of the best memories are forged between friends exploring the world together. From recent graduates setting out on their own for the first time to married couples taking a vacation filled with fun and adventure with their best friends, it’s long been a tradition to enjoy a trip with those who bring you the most happiness in life.

While there is much to be said about overseas vacations with friends, there are drawbacks, as well. For every night of dancing and drinking, there’s the hassle of finding a hotel that can accommodate everyone comfortably. For every poolside party, there’s a desire for a little private downtime. And for every consensus about where to eat or hang out, there’s a disagreement about where to stay.

Mexico Beach Weddings: Personal and Completely Custom at a Fraction of the Cost!

August 10th, 2011

These days, the average wedding costs upwards of $20,000. In fact, with the exception of a house, cars, and your childrens’ college educations, your wedding represents one of the most important purchases you will ever make as a couple. From finding that perfect dress to tracking down a venue, caterer, and band, there’s quite a bit of time involved, as well.
