Travel agencies get asked constantly this time of year - where are the good deals? Of course, savvy travelers don't want to spend beaucoup bucks on a subpar vacation just because they need to travel over spring break, like the rest of the world. So, where to go, then? The answer this year is simple... Huatulco, Mexico!
While many are concerned with safety in Mexico, vacation package vendors have started sending Sun Country flights into this beautiful, quiet and very safe destination. Located on the Western side of Mexico, past vacationers to Puerto Vallarta and Ixtapa will find similar brown-sand beaches, deep blue water and the impeccable sunshine and warm weather that made Mexico a must-go destination.
Luxury resorts, offering all-inclusive plans or not, have popped up along the ecologically friendly coast and big name resort brands are becoming a normalcy; like Secrets & Dreams. The best part, these resorts' counterparts in more traditional tourists towns and especially on the East coast are easily twice the cost for the same amenities! Beachfront spaces, great restaurants, tropical drinks, watersports and lavish spas greet visitors from up North, offering relaxation and true enjoyment of all Mexico has to offer.
What truly separates this area from others in Mexico is that it looked at previously built-up areas and decided that's NOT what to do. Instead, Huatulco's citizens and developers created a large ecological resort area - incorporating traditional Mexican villages and culture. Only four of the nine bays have been developed thus far making this also a new and upcoming destination for the trendy eco-traveler.
So, this year when you're deciding where to go, don't forget about Huatulco. And, when you ask me where the deals are this year, or where to head, you will already know the answer! Don't hesitate to visit this serene place now before it becomes more popular and the prices rise!
