The Mexico Quandary: Safety or Savings?

December 22, 2010

Michelle Higgins of The New York Times recently wrote a piece about safety concerns when travelling to Mexico. A recent spate of unfavorable news from boarder cities has vacationers apprehensive about travel to coastal resort towns. The silver lining is that this press has given added benefit to traveling to safe areas like Puerto Vallarta and San Miguel: “. . . this has made travel to Mexico a hard sell lately, but travel agents say the negative publicity has also made Mexico among the best values out there as resorts lower rates or add free incentives to entice travelers.”

The article also mentions Mexican Destinations, VacationRoost’s luxury Mexican villa brand, and outlines how Destination Experts allay travelers’ hesitations about visiting Mexico.

    I have had many clients stay at the Vallarta Palace and all have given it good reviews. Even the basic rooms have a jacuzzi in room, so even the least expensive room is good. Palace resorts also give you the Palace Passport – which gives you free tours and more.
