Things to do in Mexico

Beaches in Mexico are a sun bather’s delight, especially those on the Yucatan Peninsula, otherwise known as the Mayan Riviera. Aside from soaking up the sun, snorkelling and scuba diving holidays to Mexico are hugely rewarding experiences as the warm waters of the Pacific harbour a huge range of tropical marine life, especially around Puerto Angel. Surfing has almost become a national sport in Mexico, providing hours of entertainment on the south coast. If you like to travel with a surf board, taking Mexico accommodation in the resorts of Puerto Escondido or the Michoacan Coast will certainly not disappoint. Marlin fishing is also a huge attraction to the coastal properties of Mexico.

Cultural entertainment in Mexico is rich. The magnificent ruins from Mayan, Aztec and Olmec civilizations which grace the landscape make will take your breath away, and if you can spare a day from your holiday rental in Mexico, make essential viewing. Chichen Itza has just been named on the list of Modern Wonders of the World, and there is an unrivalled wealth of natural wonders waiting to be explored too. For nature lovers, a holiday rental property in Mexico during the monarch butterfly migration during November and December is an unforgettable experience. The sanctuary of El Rosario becomes a glorious marvel, as many millions of butterflies descend on the park.

Places to go on holiday in Mexico

If you cannot decide whether to take Mexican accommodation for the beaches or for the ancient ruins, the Yucatan Peninsula will answer your dreams! It is not only home to some of the finest beaches, but also it was the home of the Mayan people, whose staggering settlements still adorn the landscape, earning the Yucatan the nickname of the ‘Mayan Riviera’.

The Mexican Riviera refers to the resorts of the Pacific coast of Mexico, due to their prominence in the tourist industry, from Ensenada in the north to Acapulco in the south. Much of the popularity of the coast has sprung up from the beaches and beach resorts which are not only popular with those taking private accommodation in Mexico, but also with the cruise ships which dock here. The newest resort on the coast, Huatulco, is quickly becoming one of the most popular, and for good reason, as it has clearly leaned from its predecessors along the coast. Offering some beautiful luxury properties, fine beaches, three golf courses, exquisite restaurants and a variety of sports, there is very little that isn’t catered for in Huatulco.
