Have questions about this country?
Whether you’re booking a destination wedding, a honeymoon or a family vacation, Mexico vacations must be experienced at least once in a lifetime, if not more. It can take a few trips to truly immerse oneself in the culture and appreciate the history of this ancient country.
With multiple resort destinations located along both the Pacific Coast and the Gulf of Mexico, there’s something for everyone’s needs and desires. The high volume of North American travellers to Cancun and the Mayan Riviera reflects the investment made by the Mexican government in developing a safe and welcoming tourist environment.
Second only to Cancun and the Mayan Riviera, Puerto Vallarta is another popular hotspot for Mexico vacationers, as are Manzanillo, Los Cabos, Ixtapa, Cozumel, Acapulco and Huatulco. Mexico vacations generally offer good value, great weather, and a ton of fun.
Is a Mexico vacation safe?
Although some misconceptions regarding Mexico vacations do exist, a little investigation will reveal that holiday travel to resort destinations in Mexico is quite safe—as long as common sense prevails. Issues surrounding drug trafficking along the U.S. border, which are highly visible in the media, do not impact the tourist areas. If you’re concerned about safety, we recommend the comfort and security of a private resort. An all-inclusive vacation package is a safe, fun way to experience Mexico.
Things to do in Mexico
Mexico has a rich culture and history offering plenty things to do and see. The local people are generally warm and friendly, industrious and educated. You can expect to find a variety of foods with the option to choose familiar North American cuisine. For the more adventurous, try local Mexican and International flavours.
The diverse Mexican landscape offers more than can be experienced on any single vacation. Ranging from desert to jungle to mountains, Mexico has something for everyone. With some exploration, the land will reveal great histories, including Mayan and Aztec cultures, ancient ruins and Spanish colonial influences. Even the beaches, from the white sands of the Gulf of Mexico to the golden sands of the Pacific Coast, attest to the incredible variety that Mexico vacations will offer.
Authentic Mexican environments can be found at the many Pacific Coast destinations, such as Manzanillo. Even when vacationing in an urban setting such as Cancun, day trips to cultural and historical sites, such as Tulum or Coba, can greatly enhance the experience of Mexico.
For eco adventure, consider trip to Huatulco, or explore the depths of aquatic life in Cozumel. For snorkelling and scuba diving, Cozumel can't be beat. For the avid golfer, Puerto Vallarta offers plenty of options, featuring top-quality reasonably priced courses. Or look no further than Manzanillo, where you’ll find three world-class golf courses.
