TRAVEL DEALS: $500 Off South America Cruises, Patagonia Discounts, Guatemala Spas
For this week’s roundup of the best Latin America travel deals, I’ve found an enticing $500 discount off a South America cruise, good deals on vacations in Chile’s Patagonia region, and an indulgent spa package in Guatemala that sounds perfect for relaxation. 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!
The Deal: Special rates for winter
What Makes It Cool: If the frigid season that just passed in the United States proved anything, it’s that winter can be bitter indeed. But contrary to popular belief, the weather in Patagonia at the southern tip of Chile is on its best behavior during winter in the Southern Hemisphere (remember, winter in the southern hemisphere is summer in the north). Find out for yourself and enjoy a special rate at explora Patagonia Patagonia in Chile, with winter rates of just $550 per person/night.
Valid for Travel: June 1-July 31, 2015.
