Mexico

Mexico is popular with travelers from all over the world. They go there for reasons almost too numerous to mention: sunshine, blue seas teeming with fish and coral, crystal-white beaches, lofty mountains and volcanoes, jungles full of exotic wildlife, collectible folk art and the breathtaking remains of ancient cultures. And some go for a less lofty reason: Mexico can be cheap, though you may have to get out of the popular resort areas to enjoy big savings.

Mexico is an ideal place for those interested in archaeology. In the land known as Mesoamerica, major cultures developed over three thousand years ago. Some of the mysteries of those cultures puzzle scientists to this day.

A Quick Guide to Planning Your Vacation

Why do you go on vacations?
As for most people, it is probably to get away from everyday troubles and routines. When you go on your vacation, the last thing you want, or expect, is for something to go wrong. This is why planning your vacation is paramount. A few minutes of planning, can save you hours on your vacation, and even keep the entire vacation from going awry. This Vacation Planning Guide, created by VacationSpirit for your convenience, will help you through every step of planning your vacation.

Where to start planning a vacation?
At the beginning would be our humorous, but also true answer. As with so many things in modern life, the first step of planning a vacation is research. You have probably already formed an image in your head of what you want, or expect, from your vacation. Unfortunately, there are some major limiting factors, - your wallet and your time. This is the starting point. You have to decide how much money you can or want to spend for your vacation and how much time you have for it.

Deciding on a date of travel
There is a reason why date of travel can sometimes be much more important than destination. This reason is weather. For example, in the tropics there are only two seasons: rain and dry. You wouldn't want to spend your vacation hiding from the rain in the hotel room. Therefore, in order to pick good dates for you vacation, it is wise to consult VacationSpirit climate charts for various destinations you're interested in.

Picking a vacation spot
Once money and timeframe are decided upon, you can start picking a. place for your liking. Obviously you probably already heard a lot from your friends about weeks spend on beautiful resorts as well as some horror stories. Please take both with a grain of salt. People have different tastes. While some might enjoy hiking in the mountains of South America , others would like nothing more than to spend hours sleeping on the beach on their vacation. Therefore, do not rely on your friends to give you objective advice for your vacation destination. VacationSpirit Resort Guide will help you a great deal in picking a destination to go to. While there is no rule of thumb for vacation pricing (it can vary depending on season, resort, duration of stay, type of accommodations, distance from the shore, etc.), generally, Mexico and Dominican republic are some of the most affordable vacation destinations, while places like Bahamas and Jamaica are quite expensive. Doing several searches through our online Apple Vacation reservation system can give you a basic idea of how much different vacation destinations cost. Usually, in terms of price, it makes sense to purchase vacation accommodations for the duration of at least one week. The bulk of the vacation price is the airfare; therefore, there will not be a significant difference in price between staying for four days and two weeks.

Language barrier? Not so much.
Once you have settled on your vacation destination, do some research on the country you're going to. Check what language they speak there. Maybe you happen to know it. It is not a problem if you don't, as in most tourist destinations people speak English fairly well. However, you should still get a dictionary as it is likely to come in handy.

Visas, passports, travel advisories, and other side effects of travel.
An extremely important step is to check visa and passport requirements for your vacation destination. While some countries do not require visas for US citizens, a lot do. You check the visa requirements and whether you can fulfill them by the time of your vacation. Some countries require medical insurance coverage and/or proof of sufficient funds. There is also sometimes expiration date requirement for your passport. In case of some countries, it should be valid for at least six months from the date of travel. Taking care of the visa issues early on makes it less of a hassle. By going through the process early, you can do it entirely via mail and not waste time and money by going to a consulate. Last, but not least, check travel advisories for your travel destination. You do not want to end up booking a vacation somewhere where coup d'etat is in progress. The travel website of the Department of State is a good source, for both, travel advisories and visa requirements. If staying at your destination for an extended period of time, it is advisable to register with the US Government. It will prove very useful, if a serious problem arises. To register, click here.

Booking Your Vacation
Now that you have thoroughly researched your travel destination, you can start booking your vacation. It is a common misconception that booking different parts of vacation separately (air tickets, resort accommodations, meals) can result in a lower price. In reality, booking an all-inclusive vacation saves you not only the hassle of purchasing each product separately, but also saves you money. It is important to check for what is included in the package you're booking. Normally, an all-inclusive package includes hotel or resort accommodations, airfare, meals, drinks, and transfers. If you do not buy an all-inclusive package, you might end up paying twice the price.

Travel insurance and why you need it
Last but not least travel insurance. Although most people have car, home, medical, and often life insurance; travel insurance is unfortunately often overlooked. There are many reasons to buy travel insurance. For one, most of the medical insurance policies do not cover you abroad. Secondly, away from home, you are less prepared to deal with various situations. And finally, most companies either do not allow cancellation or require huge cancellation fees. By getting travel insurance, you are safeguarding yourself financially from many unforeseeable circumstances that might arise. Keep in mind, however, that there are many different insurance policies. Do not assume that you are covered against something if the policy does not specifically say that. You can purchase travel insurance and find out more about it on our Insurance page.
