October 29, 2013
Mexico is one of those places that you can return to year in year out and never get bored, always experiencing something new and exciting. Beach vacations in Mexico are particularly popular thanks to its sandy coastline and sunny warm weather throughout the year.
On the Pacific Coast, Puerto Vallarta and Nuevo Vallarta are the top hot spots for beach vacations. Puerto Vallarta is a buzzing city with a host of excellent hotels and resorts, both all inclusive and European Plan. The town center offers a romantic experience of Mexico with cobblestone streets and terra-cotta rooftops. The seafront boardwalk known as the Malecón is also a wonderful attraction that entertains visitors and locals alike with street performers, vendors, and artists.
Nuevo Vallarta is about 40 minutes by taxi from Puerto Vallarta and is populated with five star resorts, many of which are all inclusive. The attraction of Nuevo Vallarta is its long stretch of stunning beach and a range of activities on land and sea. Here you are likely to find some of the best package deals and enjoy great quality vacations.
The Baja California Peninsula offers a number of great destinations, amongst which Cabo San Lucas and Loreto stand out. Cabo San Lucas is a fully formed destination ready to delight all kinds of visitors, from couples, spring-breakers, honeymooners and retired snowbirds. Renowned for its lively nightlife and restaurants, there is plenty to do after dusk here as well as lots of adventure activities to enjoy.
Loreto on the other hand has a quieter pace and is more tranquil and relaxing as a destination, although adventure lovers will find a great number of excursions and activities to keep the adrenaline pumping. However, on the whole, Loreto is geared more towards sophisticated vacations and elegant dining.
On Mexico’s Caribbean coast you are spoilt for choice despite the fact that Cancun stands out on anyone’s list. Cancun is readymade for delivering perfect vacations, honeymoons, bachelor/ette getaways and family vacations. There is so much to see and do, from archeological wonders, underground watercaves, marine life, whale sharks to water sports, ATV tours, racing car experiences and golf. Top all that off with a colorful array of bars, restaurants and nightclubs and you have a recipe for a great vacation destination.
