Keep reading as the best vacation rental company in Los Cabos offers a few tips for planning the most amazing vacation possible!

1. BOOK YOUR FLIGHT DIRECTLY

Did you know that some airlines don’t list their flights with third party vendors like Orbitz or Expedia? In addition, sometimes you can get a better rate when you book directly with the airline. Consider checking flights directly on the airline’s website. Even if you start out on one of the third party sites to compare prices, look for your flight on that airline’s website before booking.

2. CREATE A TRAVEL BUDGET

When on vacation, it’s easy to get swept up in the moment. In the beginning of the planning stages, create a budget based on how much you’ve saved and can afford to spend on your vacation. You’ll want to include flight costs, accommodation fees, food, souvenirs and activities. Be sure to leave a little wiggle room for unexpected expenses or last minute additions. However, make sure you stick to that budget.

3. BE FLEXIBLE WITH YOUR ITINERARY

Creating an itinerary is great! However, it’s important to keep it flexible. You don’t want to try to cram so much into each day that you don’t have time to just relax and enjoy your vacation. Be sure to leave some downtime to relax on the beach or take in the local scenery.

Packing4. TRY TO PACK LIGHT

Let’s face it – all of us want to pack anything and everything that we could possibly need. Then we regret it when we have to lug it through the airport. Most of the time, you don’t end up using everything you brought anyway. Keep your clothing options simple and only pack the necessities.

Are you in the process of planning an adventure? Mexico is a popular vacation destination for many Americans. However, when it comes to traveling outside of the country, you’re faced with new challenges. Being in the know about what to expect will only make things go that much smoother. If you’ve never been to Mexico before, these travel tips may come in handy!

travel1. HAVE ELECTRONIC COPIES OF YOUR TRAVEL DOCUMENTS

Before you leave the country, scan your travel documents such as passports, birth certificates, drivers license, etc. Send an email to yourself with the scanned documents so you have them with you all the time. You should also make sure you have confirmation numbers for hotel reservations, excursions, etc. in your email.

2. PACK A FIRST AID KIT

Unlike in the United States, you’re not going to have a Walmart or a Walgreens just around the corner. While there are stores that you can find bandaids and over-the-counter medicine, it’s a lot easier to just bring those common items with you. Consider bringing band aids, triple antibiotic ointment and Tylenol. If you have any prescription medication, make sure that you have enough for the duration of your trip and a little extra in case some unexpected delays come up.

3. BARGAIN AT THE SHOPS

When going shopping, keep in mind that the markets don’t have set prices like your local Target does. You can bargain with people – in fact they like to make deals. Plus, the more you buy from one vendor, the better deal you can get. Be sure to check out a local market while you’re there. You’ll find so many unique souvenirs. You can also find a lot of the same items at different shops, so shop around for the best prices.

4. GO EXPLORING

While your luxury beachfront home in Los Cabos may be where you want to spend all your time, be sure to get out and explore the rest of the city at least one day. There’s so much more to be seen than just the sparkling waters and soft sandy beaches. Be sure to check out the architecture, the scenery and the small shops. Your Lifestyle Villas specialist is here to help you plan the perfect itinerary!

5. TRY THE FOOD

Mexican cuisine offers so much more than just tacos and burritos. The local food is much different and more complex than what you would probably expect. Since Los Cabos is located right on the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean, many of the local restaurants offer amazing seafood. Be sure to try something new while you’re here!

6. PAY IN PESOS

While most establishments in Mexico will accept US dollars, you’ll get a better rate if you pay in pesos. You can easily withdraw money in pesos from a local ATM, while only paying a minimal ATM and international fee. In addition, you could consider ordering some pesos through your bank well before you’re ready to hop on the plane.
