Mexico - Recommended

From the Caribbean charisma of Cancun and the Riviera Maya to the east, to the mountains and golden sands of Puerto Vallarta, Los Cabos and Huatulco to the west, Mexico’s diverse charms are as legendary as the pyramids that dot its lush landscape.  

Indeed, you could visit Mexico every year for the next five years and never have the same vacation twice. But for visitors, no matter which coast you choose, you can count on a magical mix of ancient history and modern luxury.
On the Caribbean coast, Cancun and the Riviera Maya’s bone-white sands and turquoise water are legendary – so too is Cancun’s thrilling around-the-clock action, from wow-worthy water sports to the hip and edgy nightlife scene.
