Mexico Beckons with Low Prices, Great Deals for Summer All-Inclusive Vacations

The following is a press release from a site that wants to sell you their vacation packages. One of the deals they mention is Oasis Cancun, a resort I’m pretty sure I went to back in 2001. The food was garbage compared to the only other all-inclusive I’ve experienced.

They also mention that Mexico will reimburse your VAT. I wonder if that’s a government sponsored scam like they have going on in the EU. Anyway, I share this press release because it mentions popular vacation areas I’ve either blogged about before or at least heard of.

Here is the press release:

Searching for a summer vacation that makes the most of your dollar? Look South of the Border for sombrero-sized deals. BookIt.com (www.BookIt.com), an online travel company, says booking all-inclusive vacations to Mexico during off-season (the day after Easter to mid-December), can save travelers 20% to 50%.

Despite a sagging economy, travel organizations AAA and Global Insight, predict 25.1 million Americans will take leisure trips outside the U.S. this summer, up 2.6% from last year. The forecast counts Canada and Mexico among international destinations.

“We feel vacationing in Mexico — particularly with all-inclusive plans—is a great choice for international travel this summer,” said Jesse Henson, VP of Marketing for BookIt.com. “Particularly during times of economic uncertainty, the all-inclusive concept is very appealing to many because it leaves very little room for unexpected costs. Our guests are finding amazing resort vacations in Mexico at a fraction of the cost of other international destinations.”

Favorable exchange rates are available, with one U.S. Dollar equaling 10.3680 Pesos. So whether you aspire to visit historic Mayan ruins or disappear on a deserted beach, escaping to Mexico won’t break the bankroll.

Not only are exchange rates favorable for traveler’s wallets, Mexico — in an attempt to attract more recession-wary Americans – will begin reimbursing the value-added tax (VAT) charged on purchases made at stores and businesses throughout the country to tourists who arrive by air and cruise ship.
