18/05/2010Cancun Named #2 Travel Destination for Summer 2010, according to Orbitz

With the start of summer vacation season just weeks away, Orbitz named Cancun this summer’s #2 travel destination. Orbitz gives travelers the lowdown on why some of these sizzling locales make for great summer vacations.

This edition of the Orbitz Insider Index was based on the most popular travel retreats for Memorial Day weekend through the heart of the summer season, and destinations that are budget-minded for travelers looking to find the best deals. In Cancun travelers will find significant hotel savings, with the majority of the season’s top destinations averaging less than $150 a night. Cancun is noted by Orbitz as a prime winter getaway, but summer here is considered “off-season.” That makes for a great respite from crowds during the warmer months. Families also will find spectacular deals at all-inclusive resorts.
