TRAVEL DEALS: 45% Off at Palace Resorts in Mexico, $80 Las Brisas Mexico, 7 Nights for 5 in Nicaragua
Two big events — Cinco de Mayo and Mother’s Day —figure heavily in this week’s roundups of the top Latin America travel and vacation deals. In honor of Cinco de Mayo (which is NOT Mexico’s independence day; click to find out what it really is), Palace Resorts is offering an enticing 45 percent discount at its all-inclusive resorts in Mexico. The Las Brisas Hotel Collection, meanwhile, is offering great room rates at its Mexico hotels for Mother’s Day, throughout the month. And finally, a very special small hotel in Nicaragua is offering two nights free when you pay for a five-night stay. Read on for the details.
Don’t forget: You can get some of the best rates on airlines, hotels, rental cars and cruises by using LatinFlyer’s own travel booking engine (it’s at the top right-hand side of this page if you’re using a computer or tablet, or at the bottom of each page if you’re on a cell phone), where it says “Save Big on Your Trip.” With one click, you can compare airfares and rates from more than 10 top travel sites, including Expedia, Orbitz and Travelocity. No more wasting time when you travel!
The Deal: Cinco de Mayo 45% discounts
What Makes It Cool: To celebrate Cinco de Mayo, you can save up to 45 percent off all-inclusive room rates at Palace Resorts properties in and around Cancun, Mexico (but you can travel through almost the end of the year).
Valid for Travel: Book through May 8, 2017 for travel through December 23, 2017.
