What does all inclusive mean?

All inclusive mean’s that the resort you are going to will provide your meals, drinks, and non-motorized water sports such as snorkeling or windsurfing. All inclusive does not mean that airfare is included, that is what we call a vacation package.

Is it safe to travel there?

When traveling out of the country there are always precautions you can take to ensure your safety as well as simply using common sense. The areas we offer are all safe areas and security is usually on site at every resort we offer as well and it is always good to check at www.travel.state.gov

What is the cheapest time of year to travel?

The cheapest time of year to travel is usually going to be in late September through mid November. Also, flying out during the middle of the week is almost always cheaper than flying on weekends.

What’s the weather going to be like for my vacation?

The best way to find this out is to go to www.weather.com and enter the name of the destination you want to travel to and remember that the forecast cannot necessarily be counted on.

How far in advance should I book my vacation?

In almost all cases, the further in advance the better off you are. The myth of waiting until the last minute thinking you will get a better deal is very rare. The reason for this is because as seats on a plane sell, the next seats become more expensive for the next person who books the same flight.

Therefore, those who book sooner usually get better prices. No one wants to wait until tomorrow to book just to pay more for the same vacation you could have gotten today.

Does my children or infant need a passport?

When is peak Hurricane season?

Hurricane season usually starts in June and goes through November so it could really happen at any time. We advise buying insurance for your vacation package if you are planning on traveling during this time frame just in case you have to cancel for any reason, including a hurricane.

What happens if I have to cancel my trip?

You will need to call your vacation specialist in order to obtain this information but without purchasing insurance on your vacation your trip could be fully non-refundable.

What do I need if I am traveling to Mexico with children that I am not a parent/guardian of?

 

Earlier this year, Customs and Border Protection (CPB) posted a recommendation on their website stating that minors aged 17 and under traveling to Mexico with only one parent, or with someone who is not a parent or legal guardian, carry a notarized letter of consent from the non-traveling parent(s).

Written consent should be in the form of:

  • a notarized letter of consent signed by the non-traveling parent (preferably in English and dated within one year of travel)
  • a death certificate for the non-traveling parent or
  • proof that the parent traveling has sole custody of the minor(s).

The parental consent letter should include: Who, What, Where, When, Why, and contact information for the absent parent(s).

Any air carrier can ask for this documentation and deny boarding if you do not have it
