Alternative holiday hotspots - Looking beyond the Med for a great value holiday

Did you know that a 4 star All Inclusive holiday in Cancun or the Caribbean may cost less than a holiday in Majorca or Ibiza?

Brexit, fluctuating exchange rates for the Euro and safety concerns for certain destinations are contributing to an increasing demand for alternative destinations beyond the traditional Mediterranean holiday hotspots. 

Luckily, dreamy days of never-ending sunshine, turquoise waters and comprehensive resort amenities are still available, and for the same - if not less - cost of a European beach break! There’s something for everybody in Caribbean paradise, from treasure hunts in Cancun to rooftop pool parties in Jamaica.

For many holidaymakers, traditional Mediteranean holidays will always be their first choice, but for others looking for great value combined with great facilities and warm seas, we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite alternatives.

Zoetry - Unlimited Luxury

Perhaps the most luxurious resort on the Riviera Maya, Zoetry’s Paraiso de la Bonita is the perfect destination for the ultimate escape into paradise. Indulge in a secluded retreat with only the highest levels of luxury; stunning ocean views, luxuriously spacious suites, gourmet dining, private chauffeured airport transfers and so much more.
