The warm climate and beautiful scenery make for a stunning combination in resorts such as Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Los Cabos, Huatalco and Mazatlan.
History fans, don’t feel left out! The Mayan ruins in the area of the Yucatan are one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. There are plenty more ancient ruins near Mexico City.
Spas abound in Mexico. Try out one in Ixtapa or even at one of the luxurious all-inclusive resorts in and around Cancun.

Surrounded on three sides by lagoon, bay and sea, it’s easy to see the appeal of Cancun to anyone attracted to the water! The average temperature of 80 degrees with 240 days of sunshine doesn’t hurt, either. Within easy proximity also are numerous Mayan cultural sites. It is truly the old world meeting the new! Thousand-year old ruins lie within sight of luxurious mega-resorts offering every amenity imaginable. For golfers there are a variety of challenging courses to choose from. Many resorts here are all-inclusive, offering all meals, drinks, tips, and entertainment at one price, an attractive option for budget-conscious travelers and families.
Puerto Vallarta / Riviera Nayarit
Nestled between the Sierra Madre Mountains and the huge Banderas Bay on the Pacific Coast of Mexico lie lovely Puerto Vallarta and the adjacent Riviera Nayarit. A perfect blend of exotic old world charm, nature and cosmopolitan culture, Puerto Vallarta first came to the attention of the world when Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton met here for the filming of “Night of the Iguana”. Since then, the area has grown in both popularity and sophistication and now boasts world-renowned restaurants such as Cafe des Artistes, chic boutiques and modern art galleries.
I like to call this the Beverly Hills of Mexico. Two towns combine to make the area twice as appealing. Cabo San Lucas, at the tip of the Baja Peninsula, is the trendy party town while San Jose del Cabo is the quaint and quiet fishing village. Each has its own charm! Great restaurants, golf courses and party spots abound. You’ll find Sammy Hagar’s Cabo Wabo downtown Cabo San Lucas and you’ll golf at the courses you see on TV during the winter months. During the winter you’ll also be treated to views of the 20,000 or so migrating gray whales. Los Cabos is also the sportfisherman’s dream-come-true. The Marina hosts Marlin, Swordfish, Sailfish and Dorado fishing tournaments yearly.
Here is the classic tried and true resort, world renowned for its variety, glamour and luxury. From the famous cliff divers to the extensive nightlife scene, you will never be at a loss for something to do in Acapulco. An average of 360 days of sunshine and 80 deg. temperatures make it all the more appealing!
