It is also one of the top destinations in the world for snorkeling and scuba diving due to the abundance of marine life. Playa del Carmen is a popular tourist town at the heart of Riviera Maya, perfect for shopping and nightlife. Venture inland to see traditional Mayan villages as well as the incredibly preserved Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza.

Los Cabos

This is where the best of laid back Mexican culture can be experienced. The second, Cabo San Lucas, is the party town with many stylish bars and nightclubs. The highway, named the corridor, connects the two and is the place where some of best all inclusive resorts in Mexico can be found, as well as luxury spas, golf course and beaches. Los Cabos is a great destination to experience both relaxation and excitement.


Cancun was built for tourism. Retaining its traditional Mexican charm it also has modern infrastructure and amenities, welcoming more than 3.3 million tourists every year. Cancun is famous for being the pinnacle of spring break festivities when thousands of college and high school students for the USA flock to enjoy the sun, sea and nightlife. However, Cancun has more to offer than just partying and sunbathing. It was part of the ancient Mayan civilization and therefore many archeological sites can be discovered. It is also a draw for nature-lovers as it’s home to exotic flora and fauna. Additionally, snorkeling is one the most popular past times with vast coral reefs and rare marine species.

Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta is a popular tourist resort on the west coast of Mexico, facing the Pacific Ocean. Its boundaries create great scenery. Sitting in the middle of the Banderas Bay — Mexico’s largest bay — it offers pristine beaches, clear waters and nightlife. To the east it lies at the foot of the Sierra Madre Mountains, which is a sanctuary for wildlife and where each year humpback whales flock to deliver their young.
