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.

Weather in Mexico

The weather in Mexico is magnificence, with only a 5°C variation between summer and winter. Summer temperatures are a glorious 28°C, and if you are chasing some winter sun, temperatures remain around 23°C in winter.

                                                                                                      3 of us stayed at the apartment for 4 nights. We really enjoyed the light spatious interior, well-equipt kitchen, balcony with hammock and comfortable chairs. The master bedroom has a very comfortable bed with much needed air-con. It's convenient to have a bar/restaurant below even though the food is not that good for the price you pay for it. The bay is nice for snorkelling ( I saw a turtle, colourful fish and a lionfish)and swimming. The best reef to snorkel in is a bit far out close to where the big waves break. It's important to know that there seems to be a constant wind and there are waves so it's not always ideal for a relaxing easy swim. Also when the sea is a bit rough it can affect the snorkelling. We were there at the end of May and we don't know what the weather does the rest of the year. The beach is sandy but as you enter the water there are rocks (and maybe some small sea urchins) so you have to take care or wear swim shoes. In the apartment there is a chest containing snorkeling and swimming equipment as well as some water sports equipment. Although if you are a serious snorkeller bring your own as some of the equipment is a bit incomplete and uncomfortable. On the beach there are some loungers and umbrellas for your free use. The cleaning lady comes every day. They provide drinking water. The Akumal beach town is a collection of tourist shops and facilities. Akumal town is more authentic with cheaper shops and more locals but it's only worth to stop by for supplies. We recommend hiring a car to take full advantage of the area and to save money and time on taxi/bus rides. All in all we recommend this condo
