Budget Travel Blog - February 4, 2010 - It's high season in Mexico and the Caribbean, which means people are flocking to the warm sand and sun down south-doesn't that sound nice, especially with this huge snowstorm moving across the country?
The good news is that deals don't disappear during the high season-sometimes, you just have to dig a little to find them. One strategy is to sign up for online newsletters, which often offer exclusive savings on packages and hotel stays.
