BELLEVUE, Wash., Sept. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Expedia.com®, the world's leading online travel site, today announced that the company plans to honor the end of the Mayan calendar cycle with savings throughout the Mayan world. More than 100 hotels throughout Cancun, Cozumel, Riviera Maya, Merida, Guatemala, Belize and El Salvador are offering up to 40% off of travel, from today through March 2013, in areas where travelers can explore Mayan ruins.

In addition, 11 hotels are offering exclusive $0 rates on December 21, 2012, the date that the ancient Mayan Long Count calendar identifies as the end of an era that would reset the date to zero. Hotels include:

  • Gran Melia Cancun
  • Intercontinental Presidente Cancun Resort
  • GR Solaris Cancun & Spa – All Inclusive
  • Hyatt Regency Cancun
  • Villa del Palmar Cancun
  • Great Parnassus Resort and Spa All Inclusive
  • Golden Parnassus Resort & Spa All Inclusive
  • Flamingo Cancun Resort
  • Now Jade Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa
  • Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun All Inclusive
  • GR Caribe By Solaris Deluxe All Inclusive Resort

"The Mayan region has always been a fascinating destination, but interest is up this year for reasons that might be obvious. In fact, travel to this part of the world is up over 10% this year over last," said Joe Megibow, Vice President and General Manager, Expedia.com. "Given that this might be the last chance to see this great destination, we thought we would make it easier to get there, by introducing some amazing sale prices. We do realize you're not going to have much use for the money you've saved if the world actually does end, but either way, those savings are yours to keep."

In addition, Expedia also announced the launch of their fall promotion. Now through October 1, 2012, travelers who book on Expedia.com can save on hundreds of hotels. As part of the sale, Expedia® Rewards members and non-members can register to earn double points on all hotels and vacation packages.
