The next time you plan a combo destination trip to Mexico, consider making
it an "open jaw." That is, have your Hideaways Travel Services agent book you
in through one airport and out another—sometimes for not much more than it
would cost in and out of the same airport. Here?s how it works, according to our
travel insider, Pancho Shiell of Mexico Elegante.
Shiell told us about a recent "open jaw" trip he took that started in the colonial
city of Morelia, in the central highlands just outside of Mexico City, and
ended up in the Pacific beachside community of Zihuatanejo. First, he flew into
Morelia, staying at the beautiful hilltop estate of Villa Montaña. After several
days enjoying the local scenery and architecture—to say nothing of the
wonderful food—it was time to move to the beach. The resort arranged for a
driver to transport several guests, including Shiell, to Villa del SolTHC in
Zihuatanejo—in the past an 11-hour drive, but now only about 3 1/2 hours,
thanks to a brand-new superhighway tollroad. "It used to be all horrible
switchbacks—a death-defying road," says Shiell. "Now it?s wide and beautiful,
and very scenic."
