Quintana Roo is one of the country’s most diverse states
The months of October and November are part of what travel agents refer to as the shoulder season, but did you know that shoulder season months are often the best for travel deals?
There are numerous travel operators currently offering outstanding vacation packages from varying parts of North America to Mexico, in particular, Cancun and the Riviera Maya.
Alfredo Pacheco Cocom, VP of the Mexican Association of Tourism Industry Yucatan, notes that the southern part of the state has different attractions than the rest of Quintana Roo. Actually, one of the things that makes the state of Quintana Roo so special is that each region, each area has something very different to offer from another nearby region.
It’s one of the reasons many people return to the area. While the northern portion has the laidback lifestyle and slow-paced island of Holbox, the rest of the coastline offers pretty much anything a visitor could want. Partygoers and brand-name shoppers take to Cancun while those wanting to just disappear in a peaceful environment head for areas such as Tulum.
Travelers looking to be completely pampered in luxury via all-inclusive establishments generally stay along the Riviera Maya, while others seeking culture make their way to the southern reaches of the state such as the capital city of Chetumal. People who want serious R’nR without disruptions enjoy places like Mahahual or Chetumal Bay.
This is one of the best times of the year to take advantage of great vacation packages — not to mention short line ups — to see other parts of Mexico’s beautiful Riviera Maya.
