The San Andreas Fault was responsible for creating what is today one of Mexico’s most popular escapes for nationals and tourists alike. Cabo San Lucas was once part of the mainland but now lies at the tip of a peninsula, making it perfect for lovers of all things ocean, whether that be swimming, snorkelling or the simple pleasure of sunbathing. El Arco, or The Arch, is an ocean-carved rock formation and Cabo San Lucas’ most famous landmark. It offers some fantastic photo opportunities and is also a great place to catch sight of some of the native sea lions. As for beaches, there are plenty to choose from but Medano is perhaps the most popular and a great place to sample some Mexican coastal cuisine, too.
One of the most popular ports when it comes to itineraries which explore Mexico, Ensenada is also one of the closest Mexican coastal cities to the neighbouring USA. For a duty-free shopping experience Mexico-style, don’t miss the chance to join an excursion to Avenida Lopez Mateos, while budding sommeliers will have a choice of excursions to some of the area’s most celebrated wineries. The region’s foremost natural attraction meanwhile is La Bufadora, the world’s largest marine geyser. It’s known to blow over 100 feet and creates quite a noise – so be sure to bring a waterproof.
In some ways Mexico’s own slice of Monte Carlo action, Puerto Vallarta is known as an escape for the rich and famous and is certainly a resort of international renown. The Malecon is the place to soak up the beachfront atmosphere, while the Bay of Banderas is Puerto Vallarta’s most celebrated natural attraction. This is the largest and deepest inlet to be found in the Pacific Ocean, and offers a wealth of beach and ocean experiences. As far as cultural attractions go, the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe is an ornate must-see, with its famous spire-top crown a truly original feature in the world of religious architecture.
La Paz still holds the secluded bay charm which Spanish conquistadors Hernan Cortes and Sebastian Vizcaino fell for when they landed there in the 1500s but today, there are some popular tourist attractions to enjoy too. The Regional Anthropology and History Museum tells their story and the stories of those who occupied the area long before them, and is a must for culture-loving cruisers. The beaches are an attraction in themselves and there’s also a choice of excursions which allow you to view the ocean’s amazing denizens both above and below the waves, with whale watching and a snorkel adventure being popular excursions here.
Loreto’s one of Mexico’s oldest human settlements, so as you would expect, there’s a wealth of history to explore. From prehistoric cave art to Spanish architectural gems, there’s plenty of choice – but if architecture’s your thing, don’t miss the Mission of Our Lady of Loreto; the town’s most famous landmark which watches over the main plaza. For lovers of the outdoors, there are also excursions on which you’ll explore the beautiful coastline close to the town and get a chance to see for yourself some of the ancient cave paintings created by the area’s first settlers.
The sun-drenched island of Cozumel is paradise found for lovers of all things aquatic; whether that be dolphin and ray encounters, snorkelling, scuba diving or boating trips. For some, Cozumel’s famous white-sand beaches are its biggest draw and one of the most popular – Paradise Beach – certainly lives up to its name. Here you’ll find a coconut grove and plenty of opportunities to have fun in the sun, or places to simply just relax in the summery heat. The legacy of the Mayans is all around throughout central Mexico and Cozumel is no exception, with excursions available to both excavated and non-excavated sites which can be found all over the island.
