Getting ready to pick your next vacation spot?
Looking for the perfect destination?
While there is no shortage of great USA destinations to visit, you may not have considered taking your vacation south of the border to Mexico. However, you should.
Mexico has great beaches, excellent food and drinks, friendly people, and amazing culture. It’s also a quick plane ride or a short drive away if you live in the U.S.
Check out these four spots that are perfect for taking Mexico vacations.
Cancun (Our Top Choice for Mexico Vacations)
Cancun is one of the most popular destinations in Mexico, and for good reason. Cancun has some of the most beautiful beaches in the country and the city is well prepared for visitors. Cancun is also very easy to get to from the United States and the flights are often very well-priced.
The Hotel Zone has amazing hotels and resorts (check out promociones de hoteles for the best deals) as well as great nightlife spots where you can have a margarita on the beach.
Cancun also makes for an excellent city to visit nearby attractions. Isla Mujeres is an amazing spot where you can spend a day in your island paradise and is only a short ferry ride away. You can also go further inland to see Chichen Itza, Mayan ruins that have been named as one of the “New 7 Wonders of the World.”
Playa Del Carmen
Playa Del Carmen is located just an hour south of Cancun, making it easy to get to from the popular Cancun airport. It’s a bit quieter than the bigger city of Cancun, however, but it still has plenty of things to do.
The Playacar resorts in Playa Del Carmen offer some of the best all-inclusive experiences you can find both in Mexico and beyond.
Playa Del Carmen is also a small, walkable city that also has anything you could ever need. The city has great nightclubs such as the Coco Bongo Club and Disco.
Like with Cancun, you can also easily go on some excellent excursions to nearby areas. You can visit the Coba ruins, take a short ferry ride to Isla Cozumel, or go snorkeling among the sea turtles in Akumal.
Located on the opposite side of Mexico from Cancun and Playa Del Carmen in Baja California Sur, Cabo San Lucas and San Jose Del Cabo, collectively known as Los Cabos, also offer some amazing experiences.
Los Cabos is a popular resort destination that will offer everything you need for your paradise vacation, and there are plenty of options to experience Los Cabos and pass your time. You can swim at Playa El Medano, the main beach in Cabo San Lucas, or relax at the many outdoor restaurants and bars.
Cabo also features some great sea cliffs and rock formations such as El Arco, a natural archway located on the coastal sea cliffs.
Not quite as well known as the other locations on this list, Puerto Vallarta is another popular beach destination that may offer you a bit more peace and quiet than the other resort cities.

However, it still offers some great nightlife, restaurants, boutique shops, and beaches to explore. There are plenty of cultural sights and sounds to be found in this small picturesque destination.
If you want to get out a little bit further you can choose to take a ride up to the nearby small quiet town of Sayulita, a hidden away spot that’s popular with surfers.
Mexico is a great destination that’s very easy to get to from the U.S.
Mexico vacations can offer unforgettable experiences and the country is truly a great destination that you won’t want to miss out on.
