Mariachis, margaritas, and big sombreros come to mind when you think of Mexico; however, Mexico has been evolving. With one of the world’s most amazing and varied culinary scenes to luxurious boutique hotels and resorts, Mexico is taking luxury to another level. Enjoy our list of Mexico’s luxury hot spots.
Cabo San Lucas
Famous for its arch as well as the parade of A-List Hollywood celebrities, Cabo San Lucas is a stunning Mexican getaway. Looking for a classic blend of Mexican-style hacienda and beachfront paradise? The Hacienda Beach Club & Residences has colorful Mexican tile, sun-filled courtyards, and nearly a mile of private white sand beach. If you think it can’t get better than all of that, it does. The Hacienda Beach Club overlooks the Cabo San Lucas Arch. Now, that’s a buena vista!
On Mexico’s Pacific side nestled between Puerto Vallarta and Manzavillo is Costalegre (Happy Coast). Home to breathtaking coastline and natural wonders, Costaelgre is the place to fuel your soul or add a little romance. At Las Alamandas Resort, you can enjoy four miles of coastline on its private estate along with lagoon, equestrian trails, and exotic bird sanctuaries. Enjoy the view and tranquility from you suite’s breeze-swept terrace or relax under a thatched palapa with sand between your toes. You can see why the area is named Happy Coast!
Lesser known than nearby touristic Ixtapa, Zihuatanejo is just what the doctor ordered, a quiet tropical paradise. Located on the Pacific Coast of Mexico, Zihuatanejo welcomes you with its natural beauty as well as simple serenity. Sporting a beautiful golden sand beach and a sheltered bay, it’s time to unplug from your technology and pull up a hammock. While in this former fishing village, indulge at Las Palmas Beachfront Villas with private gardens, terraces with coastal views, and thatched-roof suites. You can get back to spreadsheets and Facebook mañana.
Throw out the Spring Break of college years and too many shots of tequila of Cancun past. Cancun and its surrounding area has truly cleaned up its act with world-class resorts on its powder white sand beaches and inviting aqua waters. To truly pamper yourself, why not go for unlimited luxury? Just outside of busy Cancun is a little piece of nirvana at the Now Jade Riviera Cancun, which takes all-inclusive to the next level. You will indulge in gourmet meals, top-shelf spirits, entertainment, and water sports, fitness classes, spa, and more. This all-suite resort invites you to enjoy unforgettable ocean views, but also the luxurious comforts of your room with ultra plush beds, marble bathrooms, and even whirlpool tubs. It’s time for a different type of Spring Break to Cancun this year!
Tulum Riviera Maya
On the Yucatan Peninsula, just outside of Playa del Carmen is the pueblo of Tulum. Most visit Tulum for the Mayan ruins as a quick, day-trip from Cancun, but few realize that one of the Yucatan’s best beaches is also at Tulum. With gorgeous views and beachfront location, stay at Casa Malca (The Pure House). This casually elegant property with two villas is perfect for a romantic getaway or taking over the entire complex with your family and friends.
Just because Mexico has stepped it up a notch with fine dining, plush accommodations, and all-inclusive resorts, you can still let your hair down. Don’t worry – we all love borrowing the mariachi’s sombrero during dinner and sipping on uno or dos margaritas! It’s time to head to Mexico. Vámonos a Mexico – Let’s go to Mexico!
