Sun, Beach and Relaxation

Beaches that intertwine with the desert or with the lush jungle, beaches with ancient remains or full of contemporary art, beaches that are an eternal party or whose immeasurable silence takes us closer to paradise… More than 450 beaches make up the Mexican coast overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico, the Gulf of California and the deep-blue Caribbean Sea. The variety of climates and points of interest that surround them make each Mexican beach a memorable spot. From the cosmopolitan destination of Los Cabos, the ideal place to fish and scuba dive, to the mystic Mayan Riviera, with unmatched natural surroundings, Mexican beaches stand out due to people’s warmth. Choosing one of them is a difficult task, but you will get to the same result: all of them will take your breath away.

THINGS TO DO....

Cancun

You might think you know Cancun – 22 km (14 miles) of pristine white beaches shaped like a number "7" crystalline waters and sultry nights sipping on the perfect margarita, right? Well, you're both right and wrong. If this is your idea of what Cancun is all about, read on. There's so much more.

Resting on the northeast corner of the Yucatan Peninsula in the state of Quintana Roo (keen-tah-nah-ROW), Cancun was a part of the ancient Mayan civilization and is still considered the gateway to El Mundo Maya (the Mayan World).

Los Cabos

At the tip of Baja California Sur you will find the dual destination of Los Cabos. Wondering why they call it a dual destination? Part of the fun comes with exploring the region’s two dramatically distinct personas. Tranquil San Jose del Cabo retains the look and vibe of an authentic Mexican town. Cobblestone streets, intimate restaurants and boutiques radiate from the central main square and mission church. Rambunctious Cabo San Lucas, on the other end of the highway (called the Corridor), is party central with funky bars and the slick Luxury Avenue Mall centered around the marina.

Puerto Vallarta

The Puerto Vallarta region is actually several destinations rolled into one, each with its own character and charm. The River Cuale divides the town into north and south. On the southern end is the quaint Romantic Zone where the Playa los Muertos attracts sun worshippers to its golden sand and countless beach bars. Further south the seaside villages of Boca de Tomatlan and Mismaloya where The Night of the Iguana was filmed beckon. North of the river, the Old Town meanders uphill to Gringo Gulch and along the bay where you’ll find the Plaza de Armas (main square) and Los Arcos amphitheatre where daily free performances draw crowds.
