For a traveler it is essential to have the updated agenda and for that this post “Bridges and holidays 2023 Get ready!” will provide you with a lot of good information…
We well know that there are holidays in the year that we would love to take advantage of, but the reality is that not all of us have that possibility, non-working days are not always for everyone.

As soon as you can organize your travel plan, take note of the dates and remember to ask for permission in time at work, so you can enjoy a nice trip without pending.
It is also a good idea to think about specific dates and be able to take advantage of the discounts on hotel rates, flights and tours that are offered at the end of the year in events such as the Good End 2022.
A suggestion that can be useful is to take advantage of those few days of mini vacations to get to know a magical town located near where you live, there are 132 possible places, one of them has to interest you.
If you are in Baja California, Loreto and Todos Santos can be good alternatives; in Campeche, Isla Aguada is a beauty or if you want a Caribbean beach, Tulum, Isla Mujeres and Bacalar await you in Quintana Roo.
In Tamaulipas Mier and Tula are charming destinations, Tlaxcala has its own with Tlaxco and Huamantla; If you are in San Luis de Potosí, consider a walk through Xilitla, Aquismón or transport yourself to the past in Real de Catorce.
If you live in Sinaloa, Cosalá and El Fuerte are good destinations; in Sonora, Álamos is very beautiful; in Veracruz the options are many, Orizaba, Xico, Papantla, are some of its magical towns and nearby, but already in Puebla, do not miss going to Cholula, Zacatlán, Xicotepec and there are three more.
