The turquoise ribbon of Mexico’s Pacific Coast winds all the way from the USA to Guatemala. The coast fringes a diverse landscape of golden beaches, tropical jungle and the foothills of the Sierra Madre Mountains.
The Pacific Coast is home to some of Mexico’s finest luxury hotels. Mostly found in exclusive resorts like Playa Quieta and Playa Troncones where you’ll discover unspoilt stretches of white sand against a lush green backdrop, with clear water for surfing, jet skiing and dolphin spotting.
Stylish Puerto Vallarta enjoys both idyllic beaches and a sophisticated vibe with gourmet dining, boutique shopping and a fashionable nightlife. It’s a great base fore excursions, either inland on wildlife tours of the jungle or out to the Bay of Banderas, a hotspot of humpback whales, dolphins and sea turtles. Thriving marine life makes it one of Mexico’s best diving destinations.
Acapulco may have ditched its OTT 80s pomp, but it remains the prince of all Mexico’s beach party resorts. As well as the swaggering nightlife scene and amazing beaches, it also serves as a gateway for ecological tours including kayaking through the wetlands and mangrove channels into tiny local villages.
