It’s that time of year when the Red, White & Blue shows her political colors.
We’ve seen that a certain someone (we won’t name names), really hates on Mexico. But honestly,
WE LOVE MEXICO.
It’s our go-to destination and our favorite place to send guests that are looking for easy accessibility to relaxation in Paradise.
So without making a political stance,
Here’s our 13 reasons why we love it:
Riviera Maya takes the cake for favorite BeachMaster’s “bang for your buck”. Just south of Cancun, it’s home to the best All Inclusive resorts in Mexico. The affordable Riviera Maya’s clear turquoise waters and palm-studded white sands lead to gorgeous fun and relaxation along the Caribbean coastline. Not only does Riviera Maya stretch your price point the furthest, but its versatile atmosphere is family-friendly and it’s one of our fav spots for honeymooners. Check out Ocean Maya Royale in Cancun.
Cancun’s urban-ocean vibes create the ultimate vacation destination. From the adventure-seeker to the professional relaxer, Cancun blends hot downtown excitement with cool Caribbean ultra-blue water. Circ del Soliel, shopping, spa packages, and more – Cancun has something for everyone! Plus, it’s super safe for family-friendly vacation seekers. If you’re looking to experience all Cancun has to offer without the munchkins, resorts like Secrets the Vine have plenty of luxe Adults Only options too.
As one of the top 10 most colorful cities in the world, Puerto Vallarta deserves to get some major creds! For a unique option when traveling to the Pacific side of Mexico, Puerto Vallarta is home to some of Apple Vacations’ best resorts and hosts a wide variety of personality. We recommend Puerto Vallarta to people with a love for the beach, green tropics, incredible sunsets, and quaint cities full of art and authentic cuisine. This destination provides a plethora of “must-see’s” at Dreams Villamagna Vallarta both on and off resort property.
Deserts have such a bad rep! But you’ve never seen a desert like Los Cabos’ where golden sands and azul water stretch from the Sea of Cortes to the Pacific Ocean. With fishing, whale watching, a vibrant coastline, and lively downtown, Los Cabos’ arid climate sets itself apart from other areas in Mexico that experience high humidity. With perfect weather, short flights and a vibrant nightlife at Breahless Cabo San Lucas Resort & Spa, a trip to Cabo is just waiting for you!
Just a ferry ride away from Cancun and Riviera Maya sits the island of Cozumel! This destination is an underwater “guru” when it comes to snorkeling. Unlimited sea life, coral reefs, and underwater caverns make this the top place to dive down and see a crazy world apart from us. Not to mention, it’s the most budget-friendly, family-friendly destination. Cozumel is the diver’s paradise, full of culture and activities to experience together, as a family, at places like Sunscape Sabor Cozumel Resort.

Though it may be little, this island is fierce when it comes to its high-end design, luxury, and comfort.The tranquil, small island of Isla Mujeres is only 8 miles long and sits just off of the shores of Cancun, only 20 minutes away by ferry. It could quite possibly be one of Mexico’s best-kept secrets. The beaches are uncrowded, beautiful & coconut palm covered. Rent a golf cart and experience the friendly culture of the island, enjoy Isla Mujeres’ top notch snorkeling, or beat the crowds and catch the sunrise at Punta Sur – the first spot that the sun rises in all of Mexico. When booking Zoetry Villa Rolandi resort in Isla Mujeres, ask for a room facing the ocean! The view from your balcony Jacuzzi tub will be totally worth it.
