Tips for getting the most out of a vacation while staying with Krystal International Vacation Club.

Krystal International Vacation Club has resorts in three great Mexican locations, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, and Ixtapa. With so many activities available on the grounds of each resort, vacationers don’t need to venture into town to find things to do. But for those who are itching to explore, here are some travel tips for a Cancun vacation.

Tipping – Tips are done differently in different parts of the world. While cab drivers do not expect to be tipped, they have been known to overcharge, so make sure to negotiate and agree on a fare up front. Tips at restaurants, bars, and nightclubs are expected, just like in the United States. Tipping hotel staff and room service is considered to be polite and generous. However, tipping for service on the beach or in your room does not have to consist of money. Small gifts are often considered more special and thoughtful.

Money – Of course most people will carry credit cards, but cash is of course accepted at most places, both in US and Mexican currency. Convert only what you think you’ll need, or a little at a time so you aren’t stuck with pesos that you don’t need upon returning to the United States. Remember that ripped or torn pesos are not acceptable anywhere, so be sure to ask for a replacement if someone tries to give you one. If using credit cards, make sure to notify your bank before leaving the country so they do not freeze the account. The same goes for your cell phone carrier. Make sure the phone will work (if you want it to) in Cancun and that there will be no extra charges upon your return.

General Travel – Make sure that the sunscreen packed is waterproof. It’s unlikely that visitors will spend any amount of time outside without getting into the pool or ocean, so it’s really the only option for keeping your skin safe. A big one to remember is that pedestrians do not have the right of way in Mexico, don’t assume cars are going to stop for you.

Krystal International Vacation Club has many options for a great, relaxing vacation. Be sure to check out other rewards options as well as the additional locations available. Contact KIVC to make reservations for your next trip today at
