Mexican Beach Vacations Review

Shore side Beach with pine trees and resort
Pros- Aside from the vast soft sands and warm waters, the beaches of Mexico have a relaxed lifestyle, excellent facilities, great food and drink at a reasonable price, lively nights with music and dance, some places nearby. Elsewhere it offers wonderful corals at the ancient ruins.
Cons- On the downside, Mexican beaches are flooded with tourists. Souvenirs are clichéd and of poor quality, with minor thefts. Local service personnel can be sour and useless if problems occur or hints are not clear.

Best Beach Season

Mid-November to May is the satisfactory months for normal sunshine and calm seas on Mexican beaches, whether or not it's the Pacific Coast (west side) or Maya Riviera (east side).
Naturally July-August, Christmas and Easter seasons entice large numbers of tourists from each outside and inside the country, however, the warmth is on in addition to overpowering humidity and the hurricane clouds are gathering.
The worst are the freshest and maximum humid months, August – September, with heavy rain, cloud, and insect trouble too. However, notice that in the winter weather months journeys to better altitude places inclusive of Mexico City can be very chilly.
August-November has the opportunity of rough seas at the Pacific coast because of storms. For diving off Baja California August – November is satisfactory, with warm, clean water.
Spring Break - Beware the famously boisterous US college Spring Break that happens annually, mostly during March with a handful of colleges vacationing in early April. Mexican destinations that suffer the youthful madness are Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, and Acapulco. Prices up, tranquility down, but if you’re young and wild then this season could be perfect.

Zones Of Mexico Beaches

Located on both the Pacific and Caribbean coasts, some of Mexico's finest beach towns offer top-notch accommodation, bars, and restaurants, as well as idyllic coastlines. Here are the 3 Zones and Mexico and the best beaches you can find there.

Gulf Of Mexico

There aren't many great beaches in this zone. Veracruz occupies most of the coast and is a less-traveled part of the country, so it is dotted with pristine towns and archaeological sites. The state's best beaches run along Costa Esmeralda, 50 km north of Veracruz Harbor (5 hours drive from Mexico City). The sand is usually grayish-brown, the water is warm and the long sections are uncrowded, making it one of the best places to find remote areas in the country. Nearby is the UNESCO World Heritage Site of El Tagine, the ceremonial center of the Totonac tribe.

Maya Riviera, Caribbean Coast

The Maya Riviera is comprised of zones just south of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. It stretches alongside seventy-five miles of the Mexican Caribbean shoreline within the southeastern part of the Yucatan Peninsula. The climate is ideal; stunning white sandy seashores and crystal clear blue waters make for an ideal excursion destination.
Cancun - Mexico`s most famous beach resort zone on the Riviera Maya, Cancun, is overbuilt but nevertheless home to some superb beach resort hotels, fine white sand beaches, warm shallow waters, cool strong drinks everything else a tourist might need except real ethnic color, style or unspoiled serenity.
Puerto Morelos - A fishing village and small beach resort between Cancun and Playa del Carmen with fine sand, warm water, and for a great bonus, the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef just 500 meters offshore for snorkeling or diving.
Playa del Carmen - A cool, casual beach scene with plenty of accommodation (though there`s an increasing imbalance towards huge, all-inclusive hotels these days), excellent bars, restaurants, and shops. Although it is very popular Playa del Carmen is reasonably lowkey and relaxing.
Playa - also has boats to Cozumel island – for world-class diving, pricey shopping (catering to cruise ships), a couple of fine beaches, and a marine park for swimming with dolphins – at considerable expense.
Tulum - is one of the prettiest beaches in the Americas, albeit very small, but with a picturesque Mayan temple overlooking the sand and more ruins away from the shore.

The Pacific Mainland Coast From North To South

Mazatlan Baja - A bustling port city, a ferry-based transportation hub to California, and a destination for beaches with vast sands and warm waters, Mazatlan is a popular spring break destination with a variety of affordable accommodations.
Bahia de Matanchen - This is a small and very Mexican fishing village of San Blas that has a wonderful town beach. The best in the area is only 4 km away-Bai Ade Matanchen, a Large crescent-shaped bay class with gorgeous beaches first, soft sand, and a relaxing atmosphere.
Between Puerto Vallarta and Acapulco - The Central Pacific Coast has hundreds of miles of coastline, fine sandy beaches, and excellent facilities. From international resorts like Puerto Vallarta and Acapulco to crowded monster all-inclusive resorts, small resorts with local flavors like Chamela (the most beautiful 100 miles south of Puerto Vallarta), Baradenavidad, and Istapa. Up to, the choices are enormous. / Zihuatanejo. Great activities, great seafood, lively nightlife. Visitors to the
Ixtapa, Zihuatanejo, and Guerrero - This area have a choice of beaches over 20 miles. These beaches have inevitably sprung up like concrete acne over the years, but they are not moderately crowded, relaxed, and clean.

Oaxaca Riviera (Far South Pacific Coast)

Puerto Escondido Puerto Escondido has several beautiful sandy beaches with a relaxed atmosphere and plenty of affordable accommodation. Beaches range from the 2 km long Zica Terra, a surfing mecca (called the "Mexico Pipeline") to the east of the town, to three quiet bays to the west, including Playa Puerto Angelito.
Puerto Angel, Oaxaca, 80 km east of Puerto Escondido. The drive is 150 miles (240 km) and not too far from the city of Oaxaca, but it is a very winding road through Sierra Madre del Sul, so it can take up to 7 hours to catch the bus.
Zipolite Beach offers simplicity and relaxation (except for the well-developed West End), with a wealth of cheap accommodation, restaurants, and WiFi next to the beach. Recently, security issues have increased. Beware of high waves (especially August-November) and strong currents in the deep sea. n. B. Finding a surfboard rental is not easy.
Mazunte is home to not only ecotourism villages, but also real olive ridley turtles, hawksbill turtles, and leatherback turtles that bury eggs in the turtle museum and 800 m long beaches of the turtle sanctuary for several months from May.


The long stretch of white sand and dunes at Mexico Beach make it easy to find your own little nook, but when you want to stretch your legs, hop on the Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail, a 15-mile route that passes through several ecosystems, including those that house otters and alligators.
