Saving on a trip to Mexico

  • xd630x355 (1)

Let’s do something a little different today. Mexico, it’s one place that some people think you should avoid, and others say that this is a great time to visit. What I’ve heard as far as safety goes is that staying on resort property, you should be perfectly safe. If you’re looking for an inexpensive trip to Mexico, now may be one of the best times to go.

Like I said earlier, staying at a resort is your best bets when it comes to your safety, and fortunately Mexico has a lot of resorts you can choose from. And many of these will be all inclusives. That means that you will get your room, food, beverages and activities for one price. You will want to be sure to read the fine print to know exactly what is or is not included. Or if I book your trip, I can help you figure out all the details.

Where you book your trip in Mexico can have a huge impact on how much you will spend on your trip. For example, Los Cabos is a very inexpensive place to travel to. You may be surprised at how beautiful this place is. You will find plenty to do and lots of great food to enjoy.

Rivera Maya will have many different resorts you could choose from. The beaches there are absolutely stunning. Cancun would be another pretty inexpensive place to visit. You should be warned that this is a place where people will go to party. Are you looking to explore ancient Mayan Ruins? You will want to visit Tulum, which is a very quiet place.

If you’d like to try to visit Mexico at no cost, consider getting a Hyatt credit card. This will allow you to save up points which you will be able to spend on your hotel stays.

Do you have any questions? Please let me know.

Family fun at Oasis

630x355 (1)

I have several ideas of things I want to do for the business. I think I am going to look up some influencers who are passionate about the family… Why? Because I love the family, and want to use this family to help families grow together. But before I start into that, I want to make sure all my other work gets done. So let’s get started.

Spring breaks is going to be here before we know. And it is definitely not too early to start planned your summer vacations. On that note, today let’s talk about oasis, and some of what it has to offer families.

Your first question is likely going to be, where are these resorts located? Oasis has . Tulum, Mexico and Cancun. And now, let’s look at some of what these properties have to offer.

  • Like most resorts, these places are going to have a kids club where your children can be entertained during the day. But unlike a lot of kids’ clubs I see, there does not seem to be any kind of educational program. Remembering back to when I was a kid, I don’t think I would have liked to do educational stuff on my vacation. These clubs have waterslides and a place where kids can enjoy the beach here. Another thing that I haven’t seen anywhere else is that the kids are going to have their own restaurant which seems like it is going to be in this kids’ club. They will serve foods like pizza and hamburgers.
  • What will you be doing while your kids are enjoying their fun? Well, start your morning right by doing yoga. Indulge yourself with a couples’ massage. Enjoy a candlelit dinner.
  • But, you may be saying, can families spend time together as a family? Isn’t that what your business is all about? Yes, that is what my business is about. And yes, families will be free to enjoy as many meals together as you want? There are beautiful beaches you can enjoy together.

I would love to know your thoughts about any of this. And of course, what I would love even more is to help you to book a vacation please let me know if you are interested.

Things to do in Mexico City

I always say that I’d rather busy than bored. And right now, work is keeping me busy.. Right what I consider essential is to make sure that this gets done, to check e-mail and to go through my Facebook groups. I have added trying to write some on an article each. I’m also trying to get through some travel agent classes, and then reading up on how to get some more clients.. It’s kind of a lot, but I really do enjoy everything I do and enjoy the variety. I am seldom bored.

Okay, have you ever thought about visiting Mexico City, but aren’t what you might do there? Today let’s look at some attractions you might want to try.

  • The first place you might want to try is the market. You are going to find everything under the sun at this other. You will find clothes and hats, household goods and toys. This is also a great place to get lunch.
  • Chapultepec Park is a great to go when you just want to chill out. There are places you can sit in the shade. They also have paddleboats on the lake for you to enjoy. Tired of the outdoors? Try their museum of anthropology.
  • Do you love history? You might want to take a tour of Teotihuacan. It was once home to thousands of people. Now you will see pyramids and get a glimpse of the city’s past.
  • You might also want to take an afternoon cruise on an Xochimilco. Mexico City has a lot of canals, and they have beautiful boats to explore these canals on. And sometimes you will get a concert as you cruise.

I would love to know your thoughts on any of this. Please let me know.

Is Mexico safe?

I have had some other things I wanted to get done today today. I’m trying to figure out a place that will pay me to write travel advice. I want to do this to bring in some money for the business, and hopefully get some more clients. Figuring out when to look at writing jobs is hard. I want to get through everything I feel like I need to do each day, but then I often feel too tired to really concentrate on figuring out the writing jobs. I’m not sure what to do, but I am going to try to figure something out.

One of my sisters is going to Mexico next month… Of anyone in our family, she’s the one who likes to live on the dangerous side. As a travel agent, what I’ve heard is that as long as you’ll stay on the resorts, you should be just fine. But the United States has issued a new travel warning in light of recent events, so let’s take a look at what they’re saying now..

Basically there are certain parts of Mexico that have become unsafe because of violence. People have been asked to stay away from those areas, unless you absolutely have to go there. The big problem is that there have been battles between gangs themselves, and fighting between gangs and the Mexican government. At this point, United States’ citizens are not targeted, but of course you never know what could happen, and it’s wisest not to take that chance.

I would love to know your thoughts about any of this or any questions you might have.

Mexico may have gotten a bad rap

People-In-Cuba-720x479

I’m kind of in the middle of a big project.. I know I love being a travel agent, but I also love to write. I think that’s kind of obvious. I’m getting more serious about getting articles published. My goal is to have several on going gigs by the end of the year. I’m working on my first one of these. It’s exciting and nerve wracking at once. My hope is that writing these articles will help get word out about my business a lot better.. But first…

Mexico has kind of gotten mixed reviews when it comes to travel. On the one hand, it is a beautiful place. There are also a lot of truly great resorts. But there is a drug problem down there. And this is kind of a cycle. People don’t have a lot of money, then they get mixed up with the wrong crowd and get involved in selling drugs. And when you’re selling drugs, you are going to be working with people who are not in their right minds, and that can lead to all kinds of problems. But this problem can come up anywhere, not just Mexico.

Honestly, for the most part, Mexico is pretty safe. It is usually wisest to either stay at your resort, or go on tours with groups. But the same can be said for anywhere you aren’t familiar with, especially if you don’t know the language. Wandering away by yourself is just Not smart.

Mexico is a great place to go if you are wanting to do an all inclusive. You are probably not going to find a better price on a resort.. And a lot of resorts are going to have multiple properties where when and if you get tired of your own resort, you can go to other properties.

I would love to know your thoughts about this or any questions you might have.. Answering questions about travel is part of what travel agents are supposed to be doing. Just let me know.

There are certain things I try to do each work day. There is this obviously. And I check e-mail each day too. But I’ve found an absolutely free travel agent school, and I try to work on that several times a week. Let’s not discuss discuss how well I’m doing on that goal this week . But anyway, I’m studying Mexico lately.

So if you’re thinking about going to Mexico here is some more iinformation for you.. First, you should know that Mexico, especially areas that have a lot of resorts, is as safe as any major US city. Yes, it is wise to be careful with yourself and your valuables. Traveling with at least one other person, but that is always true wherever you go.

Anyway, there is a resort in Cancun  called Playa Hotels and Resorts Gran Caribe. They have a deal where if you and your spouse pay full price, two children will get in free which will save you a good bit of money. You will have access to kids’ clubs. Please let me know if you are interested in taking a trip here.
