Should I use a travel agent?
If you are booking a vacation package, a travel agents services should be free (they'll make money on comissions). So there is no reason not to take advantage of their expertise.
But, before we use an agent, we make sure that they actually visit the Yucatan and share our love for the area.
What you can spend will dictate
what type of hotel or resort you can
afford. Personally, we'd rather visit
Paradise on a strict budget and stay
in economy hotels than not visit at all.
Since airfare will be a major portion
of your budget, we suggest you get
an idea of the fare, then plan your
trip around the price of your flight.
Get your travel agent busy, or
search airlines yourself using our
Flights to Cancun section
as a starting point.
