Thanks to its diverse culture, rich history, friendly locals and a variety of mouth-watering cuisines, Mexico has always been a popular attraction for tourists. There has always been that touch of exotic about the country that has held a special allure to the travelers here.
In recent times, however, Mexico has earned the distinction of being one of the top vacation destinations of the world courtesy largely to its many beautiful coastal towns that have revamped themselves as great beach resorts complete with exquisite amenities and other facilities wholly in line with the international standards.
Not that the beach towns weren’t popular earlier but thanks to the recent revamps undertaken by the local authorities, it is safe to say that the coastal towns have become the focus of the majority of tourists visiting Mexico and that they have been able to surpass the appeals of the old colonial cities and other sites of historical interest. That being so, let’s have a somewhat closer look at some of the most popular beach destinations of Mexico and what they have in offer for the visiting tourists.
Located on the Caribbean coastline along a pristine stretch of the Riviera Maya, Tulum is an ancient Mayan port city that is equally famous for its well-preserved ruins as for its beautiful sandy beaches. From all-inclusive resorts to wellness retreats to boutique hotels, you’ll find all sorts of lodging options at the place. The place is ideal for a laidback beach holiday. You can leisurely explore the old ruins in and around the town in between lounging on the beach or taking a swim in the beautiful azure waters of Tulum. One favorite activity of the tourists is to swim in secluded cenotes that are found in abundance in the underwater caves of Tulum.
Another beach resort on the Caribbean Sea, Cozumel is a great place to visit for lovers of water sports. Scuba diving is a rage at the place and resorts, as well as individual outfitters, will offer snorkeling gear, paddleboards, kayaks and anything else you want. Cozumel is also known as a cruise ship port and the town is equally favored for its cruise ships and coral reefs as it for its water sports activities. And if you have a taste for history, you will love visits to the El Cedral and San Gervasio, both ancient Mayan ruins located on the island.
Located at the Yucatan Peninsula, Cancun is as famous for its beautiful beaches as for its abundance of luxury resorts, hotels, and many nightlife attractions. So, if you’re in a mood to splurge during your next beach getaway, give serious consideration to Cancun. At the same time, the town will also appeal to nature lovers thanks to the lush jungles located close to it and as in Tulum, you’ll also find an impressive number of caverns and tranquil cenotes around the waters of Cancun.
Although the above three are the most popular beach destinations of Mexico, the country boasts of many other attractive beach towns including Cabo San Lucas, Punta Mita, Puerto Vallarta and more. And all these places are entirely safe for visitors, too.
