July 20, 2017Timeshare's are usually used as homes, when it comes to meals. Owners like to stock up at the local Walmart, Mega Foods, or Costco because of the savings on refreshments and freshness of the food they cook and eat. Groups of family members descend on one unit and everyone pitches in to disseminate the meal duties.
It is true, however, that the cost of going off property to buy staples and other stuff is increasing, mainly because of the increasing cost of taxi rides. For example, in December, 2015 the cost of a round trip to Sam's or Mega Foods was $340 MxP (about $17 US). Then add the cost of the food and other items purchased. Finally add the time taken. All in all, going off property is an involved process, even though we love to do it every vacation.
The alternative is to truly enjoy your vacation by not worrying about preparing food each meal and cleaning up afterwards. The resort offers meal plans that appear to be very reasonable. Following is an image that explains the plan:
The current rate of MxP to USD is 17.48 to 1. Using this conversion rate, the average price of each coupon is $25.72 US. This includes 12 coupons: 6 for breakfast and 6 for lunches or dinners.
Taking everything into consideration, the price of the meal plan appears to be very reasonable. Check it out for yourselves. We all have a unique take on how to spend vacations and how much to spend as well.
