Beyond Florida holidays: Why Many British Families are discovering Self-catering in Mexico and the Caribbean

February 29, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Independent Florida & USA Specialist, Ocean Florida, has recently launched its brand new Mexico and Caribbean programme specialising in private villas and apartments, which typically appeal to visitors of the Sunshine State.

Due to an increasing demand for long-haul self-catered holidays and the desire for inexpensive, great-value package deals, the UK-based travel company has extended its large Florida villas programme across to the other side of the Gulf, incorporating villa and condo resorts in Mexico and various Caribbean Islands, which include St Lucia and Barbados.

Mexico holidays have always been a prime choice for British travellers, particularly couples and families seeking an all-inclusive deal with sun-soaked beaches, sparkling turquoise seas and a wealth of adventure activities. It's a place that offers more exoticism than a short-haul Mediterranean getaway and more authenticity than the mid-haul shoppers' paradise Dubai.

Harry Hastings, Director at Ocean Florida, notes: "We have recognised customers who usually opt for Florida villa holidays are now also looking towards alternative destinations, yet wish for a similar type of self-catering package where they enjoy the freedom and privacy of their own villa or condo".

Now with its great-value villa and apartment packages, Mexico holidays offer sun and sea as well as a rich culture and tradition in a relaxed environment that is perfect for all types of vacationer. Plus, getting there is very easy and affordable; various scheduled and charter airlines fly into Cancun airport from the UK everyday.

Hastings continues: "We've just sealed some fantastic flight deals with British Airways direct to Cancún from London Gatwick; our customers can also fly with Thomas Cook and Virgin Atlantic to many parts of the Caribbean".
