Conde Nast Traveler Magazine likes to compile lists. It must help sell magazines, because it seems that nearly every other travel mag does it, as well. 10 Best Places To Look Cool, 20 Hot Spots To Get Lucky For Fat Guys, 30 Great Deals For Less Than Your Mortgage. You look at the prices at some of the hotel rooms these days, these days when we read about world-wide food shortages, and there seems to be a parallel universe out there somewhere, with most of us living in one and only imagining the other. Since the prices listed are in U.S. dollars, maybe Europeans, Canadians, Asians and other solvent countries are filling these resort rooms, with the dollar so deep in the toilet. I have a feeling that the recession we are having is going to start effecting the rest of the world soon, and if it does, we might see some price relief.
In the meantime, Mexico is already a good value. And it’s easy to get to. And they make tequila. The Conde Nast article touts the Hot List for New Hotels, and Mexico has six resorts on the list, with two of the six boasting room rates that start under $155. Here is the Mexico list with their web sites.
