Cancun: One of the Best Places in Mexico to Own a Vacation Home

If you are part of Club Caribe, you know you have made a great investment! Cancun consistently rates in the top destinations in Mexico to vacation, and to own a vacation property. In the past several years, steady growth in Cancun has continued, and when you look around, it’s easy to see why. Perfect weather, amazing views, clear water and soft sand are just the beginning. International Influence Cancun is an international destination, with direct flights from cities all over the world. It’s easy to get to Cancun, and sophisticated travelers take advantage of this fact, some flying in and out just for a weekend and others staying a week or longer.

Deposit Your Preferred Points in Your Exchange Company (RCI)

Another way to use Preferred Points is by depositing them with your exchange company (RCI), and then using them to make reservations through RCI. If you would like to deposit your Preferred Points with RCI, you may do so up to 12 months ahead of the time you plan to travel. In order to deposit Preferred Points with RCI, you must need to contact Resort Com and request a deposit. When you deposit your Preferred Points with RCI, you will need to pay a full week maintenance fee. RCI will convert your Preferred Points to RCI Credits, which is the currency that RCI uses for reservations. Your RCI Credits will be saved for up to two years from the date you deposit them, so you can use them to make a reservation any time in that period. You can make reservations in any season through RCI, and you may also make reservations in the names of  friends or family with RCI Credits.

Preferred Points

Preferred Points are additional points that you have the option of using during the summer months from weeks 18 to 43 (May to October) in addition to the points that you own. For most members, these points equate to two full weeks. The great thing about these points is that they are a gift in addition to your annual Club Points allocation; to use them you just have to pay for the prorated maintenance fees for the points you choose to use. Simple! It might therefore be easier to see these points as your “optional” points as this benefit is there for you to use or not, as you wish. When you use your Preferred Points, you will pay the according maintenance fees for the points that you use, no more, no less! And if you don’t use them, no worries. They do not cost you a penny. Although you cannot bank or borrow your Preferred Points from one year to the next, you will be issued with a new lot of Preferred Points each …
