There are so many great beach destinations in Mexico that you probably couldn’t go wrong with any of them. But there are a few that stand out and should have extra cause for consideration due to their outstanding range of amenities and services. Some of them are for those who like a laid back, relaxing beach experience and the rest are for the jet set who like to take their partying seriously.
Puerto Vallarta has been a great beach vacation spot for many years primarily because of its location on Banderas Bay. It is the largest bay in Mexico and offers wide open soft white sand beaches as well as small rock surrounded coves. This area also can provide surfers good rides with the right kind of swells. Because of the protection and the climate provided by the bay, the beaches here are relatively wide and a perfect spot to partake in activities that range in energy levels. You can do things as quiet as sun bathing, kayaking, jet skiing or para-sailing to as busy as water-skiing, horseback riding or wind surfing. Puerto Vallarta is a well-developed tourist spot with many resorts and hotels to choose from, as well as a diverse nightlife and shopping areas.
Cancun, with miles of beaches and a nonstop party atmosphere, has been transformed from a sleepy backwater town to a luxurious vacation destination and one of Mexico’s most popular tourist attractions. The beaches on the northern side lie on Mujeres Bay and have more shallow areas for play and less wave action. Those on the southern side border the Caribbean Sea and have breezier conditions and higher waves. There are fantastic resorts all along the peninsula known as the hotel zone and, depending on where you want to be, can deliver the activities you are looking for.
An exquisite little secret known as Maroma Beach is located only 30 miles south of Cancun. This resort hideaway preserves the ecology of the 500 acres of beach and rainforest it encompasses to create a miniature paradise only a short drive away from the world’s most famous spring break location. You can immerse yourself into a world of white sand beaches, clear blue waters, and tropical vegetation while luxuriating in world-class spa services, first rate hotel accommodations, and gourmet style seafood meals.
These locations are just a few of the beautiful beaches that Mexico has to offer. You will never be disappointed if you plan your vacation to one of these gorgeous locations. But, don’t limit your thinking to only vacations. Any of these stunning beach locales can play host to your upcoming wedding, anniversary or recommitment ceremonies. The great thing about having a ceremony at one of these stunning beaches is that when you are finished with the ceremony, you won’t have to go anywhere else for the honeymoon!
Whether you are looking for a quiet seaside resort town, a rock and roll party that never stops, or a journey into a world of solitude with nature, these beach vacations in Mexico will not disappoint.
