Beaches of Mexico…Ole’!
I am not going to list all the wonders of Mexico, but I will tell you just one thing; Mexico is a land where nature has dictated its laws of survival, where landscapes change almost every kilometer and, consequently, the lifestyle of its inhabitants.
The cultural and natural heritage is incomparable to other areas of the world.
One of the best reasons to travel to Mexico is the endless stretch of beautiful white sand beach that covers most of the coastline.
Vacations in Mexico are generally enjoyed on the coast, which offers a full range of activities, including diving, tours, fishing, cruises, surfing, or of course just kicking back with a book and a cold drink. Trips to Mexico can fit any budget. Every year, thousands of tourists travel through Mexico and find a good mix of youth hostels and cheap places to stay, as well as luxurious beachfront resorts and hotels.
Plus, most Americans can make the trip to Mexico in just over a two-hour flight.
And here’s why… With 6,000 miles of its 9,000-mile coastline as beaches, Mexico offers everything from bustling mega-resorts to laid-back eco-hides.
Mexico has 440 beaches consistently ranked among the best in the world.
