Kayak, a web-based company known for hooking travelers up with accommodations and flights for a discount, has released the 2018 edition of its annual Travel Hacker Guide.
Mentioned within its pages is no less a known quantity than the pearl of Guadalajara, which is rated number one on its “Top 10 Wallet-Friendly Trips.”
For the uninitiated, the word “hack” in this context has nothing do with either amateurishness or computers, but instead signifies a means by which to gain something by unconventional or unofficial methods. A synonymic phrase might be “gaming the system.”
Why does Guadalajara make an appearance on Kayak’s list? Because according to the company’s ad copy, “With the Mexican peso at an historical low, it has never been easier to explore Mexico on a budget.”
