Mexico

There's nothing quite like Mexico! Famous for its archaeological and historical sites, white sand beaches, crystal blue waters, and its magnificent exhibition of culture, Mexico is steeped in history and natural beauty.

From its Aztec pyramids to its baroque cathedrals, rustic haciendas to exotic resorts and hotels, arid deserts to lush forests, Mexico offers unlimited vacation possibilities.

The heart of the country is Mexico City, alive with the sights and sounds of the biggest metropolis on Earth. On the west coast, charming fishing villages like Zihuatanejo and glitzy resorts like Acapulco and the naturally spectacular Puerto Vallarta overlook the Pacific Ocean; to the east, the powder white beaches and turquoise seas of Cozumel and Cancun await you.

In a country that offers so much, here a just a few of some of Mexico's highlights.

Mexican WomanLocated eight miles off the coast of Cancun, Isla Mujeres, or "island of women," offers a tranquil alternative to the bustling mainland resort areas. The island is blessed with beautiful beaches, exquisite sunsets, and is ripe for relaxation and discovery.

For contrast in close proximity try Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo. Ixtapa is the most modern resort on Mexico's west coast, with half of its land protected as an ecological reserve. Zihuatanejo has an unpretentious, informal attitude and a serene setting along a sheltered harbor.

One of the most modern, and by far the most visited, tourist resorts in the country, Cancun characterized by rows of resort hotels and beautiful beaches, where the sand is particularly fine and brilliantly white due to its coral origin. Cancun is stunning, with seas that sparkle in every imaginable shade of emerald and turquoise while sheltering a wealth of reef life.

MexicoJust south of Cancun, the Riviera Maya is taking shape as Mexico's newest vacation spot. The region is filled with scenic and natural wonders, bordered by palm-fringed beaches and tropical coves. Also, some of the most fantastic archaeological sites are found here. Try Playa del Carmen for its laid back but sophisticated feel.

Divers and snorkelers will be enthralled by Cozumel. Lying Twelve miles off Mexico's Yucatan, this is a gorgeous island getaway.

Acapulco is famous for beaches, romantic sunsets, and glamorous nightlife that attracted Hollywood's hottest celebrities in the 1950s are still very much a part of Acapulco today. This "Queen of Mexican Beach Resorts" is set around a crescent-shaped bay. After the dark the party starts - non-stop excitement of countless nightclubs, discos, and restaurants, make Acapulco a vacation spot that's fantastic night and day.

Mexico ViewIn contrast to the party-based reputations of destinations like Cancun and Acapulco, Huatulco is a serene tropical haven, better known for its rural charm and ecological wonders. Boasting of nine idyllic bahias (bays), Huatulco covers a stretch of 22 miles along the western shore of Mexico.

On the Baja, Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. have been a vacationer's delight for many years. These former fishing villages now offer spectacular beaches and golf. Whale watching (mid-January to mid-March) is also a great draw to San Jose del Cabo.

Futher north on the Baja, fishing fans and windsurfing lovers will find Loreto. Surrounded by cactus desert, jagged mountains, and the Sea of Cortez, Loreto has an easy-going desert-by-the-sea ambiance that appeals to people who want to bask in nature. The sleepy village is dotted by vineyards and olive groves.

Mexico - something for everybody!
