If you are an inveterate traveler, but without much experience – yet – you have surely asked yourself the following: How is traveling during low season? How are the destinations when there aren´t so many people? Is it worth it or not? Is it cheaper or is that a myth?
Don’t worry because I, your favorite partyholic, will tell you why it IS worth traveling when no one else does. So finish reading and afterwards – and I mean just after finishing -, go pack your suitcase to enjoy a trip to Cancun or any other destination without spending too much and enjoying at a maximum.
Well, it is important to start by defining the start and end dates of the “low season”. In Mexico there are 3 times during the year:
- January – February: Winter is the perfect season to escape to the beach, especially if you are a person who does not like tumults. Even though these month are cooler in comparison to the summer, escaping the cold of the city is the right choice. The beaches are calm and there are few people, due to which you will be able to enjoy all of Cancun’s attractions avoiding long and tedious lines for example at the nightclubs such as Mandala and The City, you will not be making any lines if you purchase your Open Bar tickets here.
- May – June: After Spring Break in Cancún and the Easter holiday vacations during which the city gets crammed, things calm down a bit during these month. Even though you will find more people than in January-February, you won’t need to worry about arriving at the beach and not being able to find an empty beach bed or lounge chair. Besides, the heat feels good and you should take advantage and take in some sun to obtain the tan of your dreams, which you will want to show off during the nightlife in Cancun.
- August – November: During the first weeks of August you can find many families enjoying both Mandala Beach Club and the shopping malls, so if you prefer something calmer, I would recommend to travel starting the last week of this month and until the second week of November. After the long November weekend, Christmas holidays start and occupancy rises, as do prices.
Even though it is the feared “hurricane season” and it is possible that you will encounter some rain, shopping in Cancun is the best, because there are many offers, including at the nightclubs in Cancun. Access here to see this season’s offers for Mandala, Palazzo, La Vaquita and The City.
- Low Prices
The tourist destinations depend on the constant flow of tourists and to encourage more people to travel, hotels, as well as restaurants, stores etc will offer discounts or promotions. As a result if you are being a smart buyer you can save part of your travel budget and bring home souvenirs for all your friends.
- Few people
Avoid the stress caused by not being able to catch the bus because it is full, arriving anywhere and having to wait in endless lines, including at the airport. In low season there are less people, due to which you can enjoy the services and places of interest in Cancun super relaxed and without wasting time waiting in line.
- VIP Service
As there aren´t as many people at the destination you will end up being truly pampered. Sometimes when there are many people, it is not possible to provide the best possible service, due to which when traveling in low season you will be the VIP at any place you visit. The people assisting you, will do so gladly and they will dedicate the time to answer your questions, share anecdotes and without a doubt you will experience the famous “Mexican hospitality” at its best.
