Michelle Stoffel posted these interesting tips for avoiding hidden costs on your trip to Mexico on GOBankingRates.com:
America’s neighbor to the south is a popular vacation destination. In fact, a report by the National Travel & Tourism Office revealed that the number of U.S. travelers visiting Mexico rose 10 percent between February 2015 and February 2016.
Many tourists wind up on sandy beaches in one of the country’s many cities and resort towns, like Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Playa del Carmen, Cabo San Lucas and even Tulum, which TripAdvisor ranked as the No. 1 destination on the rise.
Mexico’s popularity as a vacation spot is largely driven by the affordability and convenience of its warm, sunny beaches, according to Michelle Weller a travel agent with Travel Leaders.
“With the influx of more and more luxury properties, Mexico has progressively seen an increase in price,” said Weller. “However, it is still one of the best value vacations, especially for families.”
Still, there are hidden expenses that can mellow any budget traveler’s pre-vacation buzz.
Watch out for these hidden fees and costs that might catch you off guard on your vacation to Mexico.
