This week’s Deal of the Day is in Playa Del Carmen, a popular travel destination along Mexico’s Riviera Maya south of Cancun.

One of the Playa Del Carmen hotels we’re highlighting is the three-star Magic Express Hotel. Right now the hotel is offering 25% off its regular rates. I found discounted rates of just $50 a night October 1-3.

Plus, with the CheapTickets Fall Beach Sale, you can save an extra $100 off flight + hotel vacation packages of four nights or more. Just book your vacation by November 23, 2008 and travel through March 31, 2009.
