Colombia, like a group of Asian and Latin currencies, appears as one of the lowest-valued countries in the world. In fact, as of yesterday, December 15, the peso had declined by 14.6% against the dollar.
And despite the fact that the exchange rate is over $4,700, thus far being the highest in history, there is a niche of Colombians who do not lose interest in spending their holidays abroad. According to Migración Colombia, this desire to travel leaves the United States with four out of 10 flights abroad, followed by regional countries and Europe.
Where do people who want to go on holiday to the northern countries go? Most target the states of Florida and New York. In terms of the position of the sun, Colombians are already among the three most sought after in the region.
DT Minich, CEO of Experience Kissimmee, which is known for being next to the world’s most famous theme parks, explained that Colombians who are starting to plan their HolidaysAlthough they take care of their cats, a curious point is that they are increasingly searching for holiday homes, which mark a difference with hotels in price and experience.
What are the benefits of holiday homes?
There are endless benefits to vacation homes that people are unaware of. Kissimmee features the largest complex of vacation homes that are also close to the theme parks, just 20 minutes from Disney. But Kissimmee has so much more to offer, we have ecotourism activities, ziplining (zip line), kayaks, wildlife, people can enjoy airboat rides (hydrofoils), places for people to enjoy nature There are activities directly related to
What is special about these houses and how big are they?
There are various themes such as Harry Potter, Star Wars, Disney Princess. These houses are in Reunion, they are all vacationers and we have houses up to 18 rooms. You can go with your whole family, friends, these houses can accommodate up to 32 people. You can find different themes in the same house, because we understand that little kids have different interests and girls might not want to stay in the same place as boys.
In Latin America, almost all currencies have devalued against the dollar. How cheap is it to choose a home for the holidays?
If you think about the prices, when you split between 20, 15 or 30 people, it’s cheaper than staying in a hotel room and these houses are luxurious, you have a host of house guests on rent. All hotel facilities are available. , pool, game room, just for your family.
People usually only think of two options when you talk to them about accommodation: AirBnB or hotels. These vacation homes are not Airbnb, they are professionally managed, they have everything you could need in a hotel and it’s also cheaper because you don’t have to eat all three meals at restaurants, you Kids can eat cereal with milk, get down in their pajamas and eat by the pool.
How do these plans fit into all budgets?
In Encore, for example, a three-bedroom home starts at $250 per night, which is similar to the cost of a hotel room.
But like I said, six people can stay; People can cook; If they take advantage of the free shuttle, they won’t have to pay the parking fee, which can range between $25 and $35. So you can save a lot of money and it is also a great experience.
You can get more amenities for all the family members for the same price of a hotel room. You have a living room, dining room, kitchen, laundry room and laundry room. It’s like living like an American family for a week.
