Recommend this page to Google

Mexico is one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world. Every year millions of people (literally) flock to this gorgeous country for some relaxation, fun and play. Some people that think of Mexico sometimes forget that Mexico is enormous, and that there are many other regions to visit on your Mexico vacation than the most famous ones. You can make the most out of your Mexico vacation and spend time traveling from one city to the next exploring, sightseeing, shopping, hitting the beaches and more. Here are the top five Mexico destinations to get you on the right track and help you find the perfect place for your Mexico getaway.

1. Cancun - Cancun is the best place in Mexico to go if you are looking for some fabulous beaches, resorts, shopping and first-class food. Some parts of the year you will find many college-aged people here due to Cancun's reputation for its party scene and spring break atmosphere. Cancun has a deep historical significance, as it is where the Mayan ruins are located deep in the jungle. The area is more Americanized than other cities in Mexico due to the high tourism rate. Spring break is a blast here if you are young, and you will not find any other place in Mexico full of more fun and wild party animals anywhere else. During these times, it's not the best family destination, though.

2. Puerto Vallarta - Puerto Vallarta is a wonderful mix of fun and local flair. There are plenty of great resorts to choose from here including the very popular and highly frequented Hotel Barcel, which is also part of a chain of exclusive resorts. Puerto Vallarta has a gorgeous beach and at the heart of the city you will find many things to do like shopping at the local vendors, searching the flea markets and shops, dining out at some of the great restaurants (big and small) where you can experience the true taste of Puerto Vallarta and so much more. You can take a stroll on the sands to put an end to a perfect day or head to one of the resorts for some TLC in one of their day spas.

3. Playa del Carmen - This beautiful little city is located on the Yucatan Peninsula and is also a bit easier on your budget, as well. It has a very local vibe and feel to it. Here you will find many leisurely activities to do like relaxing on the miles of white sandy beaches and taking a dip in the warm, turquoise blue ocean waters. There are some historical sights to encounter, as well, such as the late Mayan ruins at Tulum. The town has an old time appeal and a pleasantly quiet setting. It almost takes you back in time when Mexico was still coming into its own. Although times have changed, Playa del Carmen has maintained its old world style and offers visitors a view of a different side of Mexico that is unmodernized and essentially unchanged.

4. Puebla - You can get a taste of pure authentic Mexico here in Puebla. Located three hours from Mexico City, Puebla will take you past the twin volcanos of Iztaccihautl and Popocatepetl. If you want to experience the beauty of Mexico's architecture, culture and museums, Puebla in the perfect spot. You will find a classic cathedral, the Museo de la Revolucion and plenty of local shops where you can purchase goodies such as fine ceramic pottery and other choice items.

5. Mexico City - When it comes to culture and history, Mexico City is one of the richest cities that you will ever discover. It is loaded with museums, parks and architectural sights (and sites) that include the Diego Rivera Performing Arts Hall and the National Museum of Anthropology in Chapultepec Park. Other highlights of Mexico City include the Coyoacan neighborhood that is vibrant with nightclubs, bars, music and contemporary art. You cannot visit Mexico without going to Mexico City for some great fun and fabulous culture.

Mexico is a great vacation destination, and there are so many different places to visit and fabulous sights to see. These five destinations are only the beginning. From the beaches, activities and resorts to the warm and tranquil atmosphere, Mexico is almost like having a few vacations all thrown together in one wonderful package.
