An excellent alternative to the islands in the Caribbean, Mexico is one of the hottest beach destinations to visit right now and boasts fabulous coastline replete with wide swathes of powder-soft white-sand beaches, gently swaying palm trees, lush jungle scenery and gin-clear turquoise waters that are home to some of the world’s most stunning coral reefs (including the longest barrier reef in the western hemisphere), ensuring that its beautiful natural treasures are suited to beach-lovers or scuba-diving, watersports and snorkelling enthusiasts in equal measure.
Our featured luxury resorts lie in the Gulf of Mexico areas of Riviera Maya and Playa del Carmen, along with the Pacific Ocean area of San Jose del Cabo, and each one enjoys a premier beachfront location that is perfect for easy access to an exciting array of water-based activities, such as kite-surfing, deep-sea fishing, kayaking, snorkelling, scuba-diving, windsurfing and sailing. It is even possible to enjoy links-style rounds of golf at a selection of the resorts, as some have their own championship, 18-hole golf courses nestling into their beaches. For travellers who wish to combine relaxation on a pristine beach with a little cultural diversity, a stay on Riviera Maya allows for exploration of Mexico’s ancient Mayan history, with sights such as Chichen Itza, Coba and Tulum within easy reach, while couples will be delighted to learn that some of our featured beach resorts in Mexico are just for adults or have adults-only stretches of beach, ensuring more peace and quiet. Additionally, several have a beach club or beachfront infinity-edge swimming pool and will happily organise private, romantic dining experiences on their soft sands. Allow our experienced Travel Consultants to advise on the best destination for you depending on the activities you’d like to do while in resort.
