Your next vacation is almost here and you still haven't defined the destination that will allow you to get rid of stress and obligations. If you are a summer lover and everything related to the beach seems unique to you, Mexico is the ideal destination to enjoy the high temperatures next to the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea.

Traveling the world can be expensive for those who keep the first option that appears to them. That's why you have to know how to search and be patient until you find the perfect price. It is advisable to plan a trip at least 6 months in advance, to cover all aspects of the trip and not get any unpleasant surprises.

Step by step to traveling cheap

First, choose your destination. Mexico has a thousand and one places worth discovering. The majority of tourists are inclined to settle in Cancun, and from there travel all Quintana Roo. Another option is to base in Playa del Carmen, or get away from the crowds and opt for Veracruz.

Once you have chosen your destination, it is your turn to look for the air ticket. The thing is there are many flights to Mexico; they are the key to save a good sum of money and make the difference to be able to make excursions or stay in a place with more stars. To look for a cheap plane the best thing is that you subscribe to the different travel agencies online since they offer discounts of up to 50%. In addition, holidays such as Christmas and New Year are much awaited by savers for the amount and variety of air offers. Check the prices every day as the destination can give you a wink in the blink of an eye.

In case that strategy is not completely effective, you can go directly to the air pages without intermediaries. The low cost like Volaris takes you from point to point throughout Mexico and at the best price. They also offer connections with the United States and the money difference with the traditional airlines of the flag is notorious with the same quality of the service on board.

How to save on lodging

Vacation accommodation always depends on the number of people you travel with. Being a lonely globetrotter is not the same as traveling with two small children and your better half. In this case, you will have to invest more in better services and the safety of your family.

If you travel alone the best option is shared rooms or hostels. They are cheap, warm and although they do not have services of the best category, the little they offer is enough to spend a good stay. The disadvantage is the fact of sharing a bathroom since not all have the same concept of hygiene. Similarly, the roommate can be a true saint or a true nightmare.

If you arrive in Mexico with your family, the best thing is to rent one of the five-star hotels that exist in the hotel zone of Cancun. This exclusive zone allows you to be close to the best beaches such as beach turtles, dolphins and Blue Seagull. In addition, you will have the best shopping with first-line brands 100 meters away.

Is renting a car convenient or unnecessary?

This is a question that everyone usually asks themselves once they are already installed in their destination. If you want to tour the whole department of Quintana Roo the car will be your best ally to save time. You will also save money since you will not need to hire the transport service offered by many companies to take you to Xcaret, Akumal, Playa del Carmen, the ruins of Tulum or Coba. Don't forget your driver's license and verify that the fine print of the contract with the renter includes the insurance coverage so you don't have any headaches.
