TRAVEL DEALS: 4th Night Free at Hilton Rio de Janeiro, $99 Marriott Puerto Vallarta, Free Upgrade at Riu Panama Hotel
This week’s roundup of great hotel discounts is especially trans-hemispheric (if that’s a word), as I’ve found some good travel deals in North America, Central America and South America. Starting in the north, you can get an amazing $99 room rate at the lux CasaMagna Marriott in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, while in Central America, the Riu Plaza Panama hotel is offering free upgrades, and further south, the newly opened Hilton Rio de Janeiro hotel is rolling out a wonderful “fourth night free” deal that will give you even more reason to stay a little longer in Brazil’s original jet-set vacation destination. Read on for 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!
Hilton Rio de Janeiro Copacabana
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
The Deal: 4th Night Free
What Makes It Cool: This month marked the opening of the Hilton Rio de Janeiro Copacabana, a newly branded property on — you guessed it — Rio de Janeiro’s Copacabana beach (the hotel had been an Iberostar, Le Meridien and Windsor in previous lives). To celebrate the renovation and relaunch, this Brazil hotel is offering a “fourth night free” to anyone who books three nights, and Hilton Honors members can earn 1,000 points per night.
