A holiday out of Mexico

In a few days my husband and I are headed from our home in Mexico for a week’s holiday in Florida. We are going Christmas shopping at the discount outlet malls, going to see some live theatre and do some general exploring. Who really knows what mischief we will get into?
We needed Florida so we could still stay warm. We are so acclimatized to the heat now that we may freeze anywhere else!

Do you want how to details? Both of us can fly Spirit Air from Cancun to Ft. Lauderdale return for about $200 with one of the many specials they run. I also paid $60 on top of that to have three checked bags but after all we are going Christmas shopping and I can’t carry all my goodies home on my back! I still think that is such a great deal.

We booked a condo for part of our stay and since we wanted to travel around a bit this time we also have three night’s hotel. I booked the hotels through Hotwire and ended up with stays at 4 star hotels like the Hilton and the Westin for $65 a night taxes included.

It will also be really fun when we arrive back in Mexico and hit customs as they will undoubtedly need to go through our bags like last year and try to figure out what all the weird stuff we bought is. So much is available in Mexico now but you can’t beat the variety and prices in the US. It is even cheaper to shop there than in Canada. Plus I still bring in some baking supplies I cannot get here – Oreo cookie crumbs, graham crumbs, instant puddings, dream whip, and flavored chocolate chips.

I go with delight but I know that there is nothing like a holiday to make you appreciate home. Let’s chat later!

Enjoy the Adventure!

With great love, Suzanne
