TRAVEL DEALS: Kids Stay Free at Iberostar & Bahia Principe, Culinary Deal in Mexico City
This week’s top three Latin America travel deals are quite tasty — especially in North America’s largest metropolis, where the luxurious St. Regis Mexico City is offering a limited-time-only culinary package in conjunction with a celebration at one of its on-site restaurants. If beaches and family travel are more your thing, you might want to check out the all-inclusive Iberostar deals, which allows kids to stay free at two of its Mexico beach hotels. The “kids stay free” concept is also the draw at a group of all-inclusive Bahia Principe Dominican Republic beach hotels. 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!
