Some plans are brewing, friends, and I'm getting excited! The Dizzle and I saw this deal on Groupon yesterday. I have been talking about us taking a trip to Mexico for what seems like forever now. But because last year was spent spending thousands of dollars on world traveling and then even more thousands of dollars moving to the most expensive city in the world, Mexico was put aside for obvious reasons.
So here's the deal we saw:
-7 night stay at Barcelo Grand Faro in Los Cabos (oceanview room)
-All inclusive, meaning all meals and most importantly, booze, is covered
-$929/person, which includes all taxes and fees
I compared apples to apples for what it would cost without the Groupon deal, and we would be saving about $505.
Here's also the deal...
We want to go in July for our 3 year anniversary. I told The Dizz that this was a big one for us because I have never been with anyone that long before and well, I think that's cause for celebration, don't you? The month of July is also a big one because it's my birthday. My 28 year, not a milestone at all, birthday.
But mostly, it's been NINE MONTHS since we've been out of the country and it's KILLING me. I need to get out. I need to go somewhere new. I need to see more, god damnit!
(calm down, michelle. deep breaths)
So, anyway, I figure, if we plan now, we can buy this Groupon deal, then have 6 months to pay it off until July. Then, come July, we have this great week-long vacation to enjoy together and celebrate!
I've never purchased a Groupon Getaway before, so I'm still trying to research if this is the best deal or not, but so far, I think it's pretty good. I'm especially loving the all-inclusive part.
Have you ever done a vacation through Groupon before?
Have you ever been to Los Cabos?
Any suggestions on making a Mexico trip happen that is fun and cost-effective?
Would YOU like to also book this trip and come drink free booze all day by the pool with us? Yes? Great. Let's do it!
