3 Tips How to Handle Holiday Crowds
As the holidays approach, people from all over the world arrive at Cancun International Airport. Like an army of ants, streams of tourists pour out of the airport and jump into any one of the massive convoy of shuttles lined up outside the terminal.
If you don’t have pre-arranged transportation, it can get quite crazy and chaotic at times. This is especially true if you are traveling down to Playa del Carmen, which can take from 40 minutes to an hour.
One great option is to book a beautiful vacation condo through Rentals Your Way and get your airport transfers taken care of for free! No stress, no hassle.
Speaking of lounge chairs, they become a hot commodity around Christmas break when properties are near full capacity. So get down to the beach early and pick out your spot so you can enjoy the beach and the sun exactly the way you want.
As a rule of thumb, doing anything early in the day is a great way to beat the holiday crowds. If you have a rough plan for what you want to do during your stay, that can go a long way to helping you maximize your time and enjoyment.
An example of that might be grocery shopping. If you were planning to cook a meal or two during your stay or just want to pick up some poolside snacks for your condo, hit the grocery store before 9am! Then you’re more likely to breeze through the aisles and check out quickly. If you go later in the day, you could end up spending hours of your precious vacation in line at the checkout – not cool.
Even easier–contact us to request groceries and we’ll take care of it. Your food and drinks will all be picked up and delivered to your condo, ready for your arrival!
