5 Reasons to go to Mexico for the Holiday Season
December 11, 2013
1. AVOID THE RUSH
Leave all the craziness and consumer frenzy behind and escape to paradise. The modern world of consumerism and greater demands on working families means that Christmas can be a chore rather than a pleasure. Booking a trip to Mexico over the Holiday Season means that you can simply leave everyone else to their plans and stresses and enjoy quality time with your nearest and dearest.
2. THE WEATHER
By the time December arrives you already know what you are in for over the next few months. Breaking up the cold weather with a vacation in the sun is always a good remedy to ensure you can make it through the winter without fully hibernating. The climate in beach destinations such as Puerto Vallarta and Nuevo Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas and Loreto as well as Cancun are pleasant at any time of the year, with the winter months enjoying sunshine and warm temperatures.
While vacations will cost you money, once you have calculated all the presents, food, drink, taxis and the like, you might find that it doesn’t cost that much more to take a vacation in Mexico. Once you are there, the prices of gourmet cuisine are cheap by comparison to home and your money will go a lot further.
4. Direct Flights
The winter months are actually considered high season in the coastal destinations and for that reason you will find many direct flights from a great number of cities in the United States and Canada. Their regularity also means that your holiday plans can be more flexible.
5. Mexicans Know How to Celebrate
Besides being one of those countries whose hospitality and friendliness is famed, in Mexico, you are guaranteed a good time and the holiday season is no exception with any excuse for a party. Celebrating Christmas Day will be a pleasure and pretty straight forward to organize as Mexicans celebrate their big dinner on Christmas Eve, meaning that you will easily be able to reserve in your favorite restaurant.
