It's Cinco de Mayo today and you know what that means. Yes, that's right, 2-for-1 margaritas at Benny's Downtown Tap Room. No! Think bigger. It's the anniversary of the 1862 Battle of Puebla, when a ragtag Mexican army unexpectedly whipped the better-trained French, guaranteeing the country's independence. Strange to say, the anniversary is more popular in the United States than in Mexico (and not at all popular in France). So for anyone looking for a reason to celebrate, check this deal out.
The One&Only Palmilla in Los Cabos, Baja California, is one of the most luxurious resorts in all Mexico. In honor of Cinco de Mayo, the resort is offering a bundle of savings:
* Stay three nights and get more than $550 in complimentary amenities, including a $200 resort credit, round-trip airport transfers, two $50 certificates good for a massage at the spa, and two rounds of golf on the Jack Nicklaus signature course (right).
* Stay four nights and get the fifth night free.
* Plus…Margaritas! They're complimentary daily at the Agua Bar from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. May we just say, Ole!
The fine print: The deal is available if you book a Beach Front Terrace junior suite category or higher. The deal is good for travel through May 31, 2011 and is subject to availability. You can reserve by calling 866-552-0001 or going here.
