If you are in the market for a snorkeling or diving vacation, try Cozumel, renowned for its clear, warm waters with visibility that can reach more than 120 feet. All sorts of fish, caves and sand falls make underwater exploring here a delight (and the beaches are not bad, either).
Are you searching for a Mexico vacation full of sunsets and romantic nights? If so, take a trip to Puerto Vallarta, one of Mexico’s most delightful spots. Cobblestone streets, palm-lined beaches and secluded coves make this charming town hard to resist. Accommodations and dining are first rate.
Maybe you are in the market for a lively party atmosphere, a place where the fun lasts nearly all night long.
If so, Acapulco should be on your itinerary. This wonderful Colonial town is famous for its amazing cliff divers and festive nightlife. The basics, from great food to sunny beaches, are all here.
Perhaps world class sport fishing is more to your liking. If so, head out to Cabo san Lucas for your Mexico vacation. Known for its bounty of tuna, sailfish and marlin, Cabo attracts fishermen (and women) from around the world. It is also a spot for whale watching, and the party atmosphere is alive and well.
Or maybe for your Mexico vacation you are seeking a peaceful place to just sleep on the beach and drink a few margaritas. Playa del Carmen may be just the ticket. This artsy, mellow town on the Maya Riviera remains unspoiled and has beautiful white sandy beaches and spectacular waters. It is a growing place but still charming and rustic.
If stunning, world class resorts and beaches in Mexico with sand so fine and soft that it feels like sugar under your feet are your cup of tea, then Cancun is the place to go. Flashy, Americanized and shimmering under the Mexican sun, this resort town is the most popular tourist destination in all of Mexico, attracting nearly 1.5 international vacationers a year. It is a party town and will ensure a lively vacation and spectacular scenery.
Mexico is not just about the beaches, though. If history and culture make your heart skip a beat, head out to Mexico’s Spanish Colonial towns on your next Mexico vacation. These include such towns as Taxco, San Miguel de Allende and Puebla, plus many others, that date from the early 16th century. Narrow cobblestone streets, mission churches and hand-carved wooden doors on weary homes give modern travelers a peek into a once-flourishing era now long gone.
For a glimpse into a time even more distant, on your next Mexico vacation visit one of the many mysterious archeological ruins that are scattered throughout Mexico. Mayan ruins are found throughout the state of Yucatan state, as well as at Teotihuacan, just outside of Mexico City. A must see Aztec temple, Templo Mayor, is in Mexico City, and is well worth a visit.
