The Best Rated Exclusive Beaches in Mexico: Private Luxury at Your Fingertips

Imagine a world where the sand feels like silk; creamy white pebbles slip smoothly between your toes as you walk, while looking out at the glimmering Caribbean Sea that sparkles clear turquoise tones. All the while, you are savoring authentic tamales, fresh ceviche and margaritas made from local limes. This is not a fantasy. This is Mexico. Also don’t forget to follow our Flighthub Google + page for our recent deals to Mexico.

Cancún, a city in southeastern Mexico, is home to some of the most breathtaking, exclusive beaches. To get the scene described above and more, you will want to check out Ixchel Beach Hotel, a Mexico beach resort located in Isla Mujeres (Women’s Island.) This hotel, with its Mexican casual décor, opened its doors in 2006. The rooms are painted in beige with white-linen beds and brown wooden doors leading out to balconies that open to the incredible Cancún beach and the blue ocean that looks like it goes on for miles and miles. This hotel is perfect for honeymooners or family vacations, offering its guests numerable amenities including water sports, deep-sea fishing, world-class restaurants, cabanas and more.

Moving into an even more secret location is the intimate Las Nubes de Holbox, located in the Yucatacan Peninsula north of Quintana Roo. This island is separate from Mexico’s mainland, where the most exotic animals in the world can be seen from your bedroom balcony, making Las Nubes de Holbox an off the grid, romantic experience that you will never forget. The only way to get to this Mexico beach resort is by boat. When you aren’t soaking in the sun near the shimmering blue lagoon, you can also enjoy delicious martinis in the lounge that reflects a panoramic view of Holbox. Don’t miss the sunsets here. They are so spectacular, not even the best camera can capture its magnificence.

Finally, we get to the crème de crème. This place is none other than Hotelito Desconocido, a 5-star hotel featuring wooden bungalows that sit on stilts and are situated right in the middle of a UNESCO-protected nature reserve. Hotelito Desconocido is truly where fantasy meets reality. Let your body settle into complete bliss at the hotel spa, where you can experience thalassotherapy treatments including bubble beds, geysers, waterfalls, massages and facials. The food is made from fresh fruits, vegetables and spices sourced from the hotel’s very own organic garden and the fish only come from the sea surrounding the bungalows. And each private room, also called ‘palafitos,’ bursts with personal touches of canopy beds, marble tubs, hammocks, wicker love seats, deck fences made out of bamboo, colourful tapestry all coming together with gorgeous wooden floors. Outdoor activities are also in abundance here. Take a ride on a catamaran; go bird and wildlife watching, windsurf or even take a cooking class with your one and only. Then, end your day by cozying up in blue wooden chairs on the porch of your bungalow and take in the orange, pink, red and purple coloured sunsets. There’s truly nothing like this.

How to Find the Cheapest Flights for a Beach Vacation in the Winter Season

It has been an extremely cold winter, and most of us want to flee this cold weather and go where it is warmer. Birds migrate for the winter, so why not follow their wisdom and fly to a beach vacation? You might be concerned that it’s last minute, but don’t worry. In this article, we will explore the most affordable ways to get amazing, last-minute beach vacations! Also don’t forget to follow our Flighthub Google + page for our recent deals.

FlightHub Snow Birds Escape

Florida, Hawaii, and the Caribbean: Jamaica, Cuba, and Cancun, are great places to look for beaches. For the best beach vacation, explore blogs and forums for cheap trip ideas. For instance, you can find forums about Budget Winter Beach Trip Ideas. Additionally, the Virtual Tourist website features a forum page with the heading ‘Sun/Beach Destinations for Winter’. Often, blogs and forums are excellent ways to find cheap trips. In fact, FlightHub features online travel guides to help you find cheap trips to myriads of destinations.

Are you searching for the cheapest flights from Canada in particular? If you’re a Canadian snowbird, look for cheap flights leaving out of airlines that are bordered along the United States. Often, doing this can help save you money.

In order to get the cheapest deals, consider buying a vacation package. Often, these have fixed rates and are cheaper than booking a regular flight. So consider packages that may include the flight and hotel, or the flight and car.

Many airlines also promote last-minute or getaway specials. Often, these flights depart on Friday or Saturday and require you to return on Monday or Tuesday. In order to make sure you get the best vacation deals, be sure to sign up for your airline’s newsletter if it offers one. Additionally, follow Facebook pages and Twitter feeds for great deals. This is a great way to stay up to speed with new and limited time offers.

flighthub flights to beaches

Keep in mind also that airlines often want to sell tickets for the next weekend early in the week. For this reason, they display many flight deals on their websites on Mondays. However, Tuesday at 3pm Eastern Standard Time is the best time to book flights. At this time, airlines try to price-match other airlines. When booking flights, keep in mind that Saturday, Tuesday, and Wednesday are generally cheaper days to fly.

Flights that leave the earliest in the morning or the latest at night are often the cheapest since not many people want to fly very early or very late. These offer another added benefit: many people on these flights put their time to good use by sleeping. If you sleep during your flight, you will have more time to enjoy vacationing!

If you’re booking a last minute vacation, consider bidding websites. Many airlines that have extra seats on flights will let bidding websites like Priceline or Hotwire sell their seats at very low prices.

FlightHub can certainly help you if you have any more questions or if you would like any more assistance to find the cheapest flights or hotels for your winter beach trip. With these resources and ideas, you are sure to find an affordable way to get your relaxing, sunny beach vacation.
