A Mexico vacation can be one of a kind. A trip to Cancun and its neighboring communities of Riviera Maya and Playa del Carmen cater to the all-inclusive crowd, where unlimited drinks flow and sprawling resorts dot the coastline. For a more authentic experience, head west to Puerto Vallarta, known for its cobblestone streets and vibrant art scene.
Beyond Cancun and Puerto Vallarta, Cozumel is a snorkel and scuba haven, thanks to the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, one of the biggest in the world. Don’t miss the chance to have an undersea encounter with an endangered species like Loggerhead Sea Turtles and West Indian Manatees.
While Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo and Cozumel are as stellar as advertised, travelers shouldn’t sleep on Mexico City. Travel + Leisure magazine tabbed Mexico City as one of the best cities in the world, not just Mexico. It’s not shocking when you consider the city’s pleasant juxtaposition of Euro-style plazas with Aztec temples.
