With its prime location on the Caribbean Sea, white-sand beaches and beautiful Mayan ruins, a Cancun vacation may seem like an unaffordable vacation to some tourists.
Krystal Cancun Timeshare believes adventurers of all stripes can afford to enjoy a stay in this Mexican resort mecca. In order to help vacationers get the most for their money, Krystal Cancun Timeshare is sharing its list of the three best ways to enjoy an affordable Cancun getaway.
Learn some Spanish: Many people who work in the tourism industry in Cancun speak English. However, it is still a good idea for visitors to have at least a little Spanish vocabulary at the ready for when they leave the beaten path to show respect for the local culture. Krystal Cancun Timeshare offers these phrases to get started:
Buenos días – Good morning
Buenas tardes – Good afternoon (this is used until after sundown)
Buenas noches – Good night (as a greeting, not a goodbye)
No hablo español – I don’t speak Spanish
¿Habla usted inglés? – Do you speak English?
Gracias – Thank you
The right restaurant: When visiting Cancun, tourists will find a variety of restaurants including foreign food establishments serving pizza or burgers; Mexican restaurants for foreign tourists; and Mexican restaurants geared toward locals or Mexican tourists. People should always seek out the latter. These restaurants will not only have authentic local cuisine, but will also have lower prices. Krystal Cancun Timeshare recommends seeking out these types of restaurants at Parque las Palapas. A good rule to follow is if the restaurant is packed with local customers, it’s probably good.
Self-guided tours: Travelers do not have to pay exorbitant amounts for guided tours. They can take public transportation to the archaeological zones, with buses leaving from the ADO bus station downtown for such areas as Valladolid, Chichen Itza, Merida, Chetumal, Palenque, and beyond. Krystal Cancun Timeshare shares that the website http://www.ado.com.mx is a great place for visitors to check out before their vacation to get an idea of prices and routes. If a person decides to purchase the tickets at the bus station, it is a good idea for non-Spanish speakers to have the destination and times written down to avoid confusion.
