Mérida, Yucatán — Planning a getaway? Plan to get a vacation deal.

The Vacation Outlet Expo 2017 begins Friday at the Siglo XXI Convention Center and runs through Sunday.

The exhibition, which is free and open to the public, has gathered 28 travel agencies and 30 hotel chains that will offer more than 10,000 vacation packages, many with special discounts, reports Notimex.

For this 11th edition of the expo, organizers expect more than 25,000 visitors.
