8 Ways to save money in Las Vegas

Living in Vegas is expensive, especially for a family of five.  We try to find free activities in Vegas  and places kids eat free in Vegas, when we can  Anytime we go out we pay tourist prices. I constantly look for ways to save money, especially on eating out.  Here is what I have found so far in Vegas.  Each of these are deal websites that I watch, I hope they help you save on your next Las Vegas Vacation.

  • Restaurant.com - Las Vegas has almost 200 restaurants that participate in these restaurant gift certicates. Some of my favorites are Memphis Championship BBQ, Pink Taco, Strip burger, House of Blues, and BB Kings.  This can really help a you have an inexpensive family vacation. Just be careful about the ones that automatically add 18% gratuity. Most restaurants in Vegas do this anyway if there are 5 or more in a party.
  • 3 O'clock Club - This website has good deals everyday. Some popular Vegas restaurants are on here such as Hash House a Go Go.

  • Groupon - Everyday is a new deal. They offer deals on a little bit of everything.

  • EverSave - mostly savings on products which comes in handy if you plan to do some shopping!
  • Zozi - Deals on Vacations, weekend getaways, yoga, helicopter rides and more!
  • GoldStar has heavily discounted tickets to shows in Las Vegas. They even offer free admission to some shows and events.

Hotel Camino Maya–Copan, Honduras

DSC00153We went to Copan, Honduras over Easter weekend and stayed at Hotel Camino Maya.  It is on a busy corner across from the plaza and very easy to find. The street along one side of the hotel was filled with vendors selling all kids of goodies.  The other street had food vendors.  Overall the location was great.
Our room was good.  These are pictures of a triple room, you can see some pictures of their regular rooms here.  We had two double beds, a bathroom with a shower only, tv, bottled water, and most important air conditioning!  The maid service was good, we never saw them make up the room.  From what I could tell they cleaned and replaced everything daily, sheets, water, soap, and towels.  The tv had cable with some channels in English.  The lobby had 2 computers with free internet.  100_1452
The hotel had a bar, Lost Monkey’s and a restaurant, Elisa’s.  We of course had to try both.  We ate at Elisa’s the first night we got there.  I don’t remember much about it after the exhaustion of so much traveling.  I can remember how good the Honduran tacos looked.  The guy eating them said they were fantastic.  We had the room closest to Lost Monkeys so we were able to actually go to the bar and watch the kids in the room at the same time.  This was a first for us!  Lost Monkeys seemed like a popular hangout and was fun.DSC00155
The hotel was built to where it has a big open courtyard.  I especially enjoyed sitting out there in the morning having my coffee.
When we were there the hotel was bright red.  If you look on their website it is yellow.  The bar also has a different name on the website.  Don’t worry though, you are looking at the right website!

Real Estate seminar material giveaway

Flip and Grow Rich -- Armando's Step by Step Guide to Real Estate Investment PropertiesIt's been a while since I wrote about investing. Last week I attended a free real estate investing seminar put on by the people behind Armando Montelongo Flip that House. Although they spent a lot of time plugging their products and classes, there was still useful information I learned. (I do not recommend buying any of their products that they are selling.  If you go to a seminar take what you can get out of it and leave.  Oh, and pick up your free gifts at the end.)
At the end they gave out some CDs and DVDs. So, of course I picked up an extra set!  You can not buy these any where and there is some very interesting stuff on the CD!  (The prize is not the guide pictured above.)

I'm giving away the Flip For Success: Fast Cash In Foreclosure DVD and Real Estate 2011 cd.
