1. Book During the Off-Season
You’ll get the best deals in the Caribbean and Mexico from the end of May through October, for obvious reasons. But if you want to enjoy the sun when it’s in scarce supply in Canada, your best bet is to travel in October or November, when prices are still low. They soar around Christmas, drop again after New Year’s and rise steadily through January and February, peaking in March.
No matter what age or ideal travel agenda, these Mexican destinations offer rich experiences, unforgettable locations and hidden gems.
2. Opt for a Less Expensive Destination
Cuba and the Dominican Republic qualify as the least expensive destinations and have some truly lovely four-star resorts with lots of activities to keep both the young and the old happily occupied.
From the beaches of Puerto Plata to the ancient architecture of Santo Domingo, here are nine places you absolutely have to visit in the Dominican Republic.
3. Take Advantage of Early Booking Bonuses
Lock in your all-inclusive vacation plans earlier and you’ll pay less. Early booking bonuses can sometimes save several thousand dollars on the cost of a vacation package for your family. You’ll also likely have your pick of resorts and dates.
