If you book a cheap flight, remember there are lots of ways to get cheap or free hotel rooms with points from credit card bonuses and spending!

Here’s my post on top Starwood hotels in the Caribbean and Mexico to book with Starwood points!  For instance, you can stay at the Aloft Cancun, a Starwood Category 2 hotel, for Big Travel with Small money!

Or use Hyatt points to stay at the fantastic all-inclusive Hyatt Zilara Cancun!  Hyatt is a Chase Ultimate Rewards transfer partner.

To find hotels that can be booked with points, I like using Hotel Hustle (which even shows you if rooms are actually available!) or AwardMapper.

Remember, you can transfer flexible points like Chase Ultimate Rewards or American Express Membership Rewards to different hotel programs.
