Group Vacations make for saving money

With the economy the way it is, people are planning vacations on a tighter budget.  They are more careful in spending their hard-earned money.  One way to get more vacation for less money is by traveling with others.  Whether it is a large group or just a few friends, you can save money by pooling your resources.

However, for all of the benefits, there can also be a downside in traveling with more people.  You have more personalities and more opinions and more people to please.  There is a way to plan a group vacation and make everyone happy and to come home with a few dollars left in your pocket.

The first thing in planning a group vacation is to have a meeting with everyone together.  Find out what everyone is expecting in this vacation.  Is it supposed to be relaxing or a lot of sightseeing?  Do they want to get away from it all or be in the center of everything?  It would be easiest to appoint one person to be the vacation planner and they can delegate tasks to others if they choose.  The planner needs to ask the questions and take notes for when they are making reservations later.

The vacation planner also needs to find out what everyone requires in accommodations, cost, what their budget is, any tourist attractions they want to see and anything else that is important to them on a vacation.  It’s at this stage that everyone must decide if their ideas are compatible with each other.  Not everyone can travel well together and you don’t want them to be unhappy during the trip.

Traveling with a group can be fun and save a lot of money but there are special considerations that must be thought of to make the vacation enjoyable for everyone.  If it is organized, it can become the preferred way to travel and provide a lot of great memories.

The secret in the travel business is the price per person goes down the bigger the condo you rent.  So find your group for your next vacation in Playa del Carmen and contact me for a special price on a 3 or 4 bedroom condo or click here to go to the website.

3 Tips for Traveling Stress-Free With Your Big Family in Playa del Carmen Mexico

March 20, 2012 Leave a comment

Playa del Carmen Mexico is a traveler’s paradise: swimming with the dolphins, Mayan ruins,  tropical birds, snorkeling, diving, catamaya sailing, zipline tours. It’s a fantastic place to take your big family of 5, 6, 7, or 8, but you will need to keep some key things in mind to avoid getting stressed out. Here are the top 3 tips for big families whose next destination is Playa del Carmen Mexico.

1. Avoid Hotel Rooms.

If you’ve ever tried to cram your big family into a single hotel room, you know it’s an impossible situation. Fortunately, in Mexico many hotels offer family suites, so if you book ahead you’ll be fairly comfortable. An even smarter option is to rent a condo. You’d be surprised at how affordable this is. Make sure you have enough rooms for everyone to spread out, and respect your older kids’ need for some privacy.

2. Plan Your Meals.

Some of your kids may be omnivores, others may be picky eaters. In Playa del Carmen, it’s easy to accommodate everyone’s preferences if you do a little pre-planning. When renting a condo, you can save money by cooking your own meals. Local shops and international grocery store chains like Wal-mart and Mega have an excellent selection of food. There’s a convenience store nearby as well for those quick items you may need.

3. Learn a little Spanish.

As anyone who’s traveled with a child knows, your little one is a great conversation-starter. Multiply that by 5, 6, 7, or 8, and you will have a hard time avoiding conversations about your family! But why would you want to? Chatting about your big family and encouraging your kids to mingle with local children is a fantastic way to make authentic connections and immerse yourself in the culture. Practice your language skills together as a family and enjoy the adventure.

As a travel destination, Playa del Carmen has something to offer kids and adults of all ages. If you follow these three tips, hang onto your sense of humor, and stay calm, you’ll have an unforgettable time exploring the colorful and picturesque city of Playa del Carmen Mexico with your big family.
