The most exciting resorts in Mexico: Surf's Up!

Автор: 11.03.2020 | travel, Mexico, tourism
Mexico is a hot and passionate country. At least, legendary Mexican soap operas have contributed to this image. It is time to go there and get your own unforgettable experience that will forever stir your soul! Mexico is a country in the south of North America washed by the Pacific Ocean, the Caribbean Sea, the Gulf of California and the Gulf of Mexico. Surfers say the waves are amazing there...

The weather is always warm in any Mexican city. Nevertheless, Mexico has two major seasons each year, dry and wet: the dry season is autumn and summer, and the wet season is winter and spring. The average summer temperature is + 35C, and the winter is + 22C. The country has tropical climate in the south, and subtropical in the north.

Perhaps, due to hot weather local people are sunny: a businessman hurrying to work, and the shoe shiner, and a leisurely ice-cream seller will flesh a smile at you.

Cancún: tropics with European flavour

Cancún used to be a favourite resort of Maya emperors. Today it is a city with a beautiful, almost untouched nature and civilized European-like infrastructure - the most visited in the Caribbean. Even among Mexicans it is associated, primarily, with the pleasant vacation.security-update-cancun-and-riviera-maya-by-travel-state-government.jpgPhoto villapalmarcancun.com

The beautiful beaches of Cancún are located on the Caribbean coast and border on the Nichupte Lagoon. But there are much more amenities: the most sophisticated restaurants and vibrant night clubs in the country are the pride of Cancún. A major tourist highlight is the ruins of the ancient Mayan buildings. This charming city is located on the Yucatán Peninsula. It occupies the mainland and the island area. The best season is November-April.

The city features plenty activities and things to do that will keep any tourist busy: tennis, golf, exotic bullfighting, and much more. In addition, there are theatres, museums, concert halls, old Catholic churches, etc. Besides, it is a fabulous destination for scuba diving: 20 years ago, Jacques Cousteau personally discovered a unique black coral reef. The entire colony of the local marine reef is considered the largest and most beautiful in the world.

There is a 30-kilometer hotel zone by the beach. The hotels are built in the shape of the digit seven, which the Mexicans believe to be a lucky number.

As for expenses, the closer to the coast, the higher are prices. But in the downtown prices are quite reasonable. The best entertainment awaits shopaholics in the territory of the Hotel Zone where goods are tax exempt. However, this does not apply to the best-selling goods as alcohol and tobacco. But this rule is in force (hurray!) in boutiques of famous designers.

This tourist getaway has a long history. In the 16th century Acapulco was an important port city, the second in the New World. It entered into the zenith of its fame in the 60s of the last century. Then the first-tier celebrities came there for vacation, escaping from relaxed California teemed with fans. Marilyn Monroe, and then Robert De Niro and Madonna used to luxuriate there. It's no wonder: Mexico borders on the star-packed California. Acapulco has a well-developed infrastructure and many hidden coves and inlets. They can quite gracefully insulate you from all over the world.

Tourist fame of the Mexico started from Acapulco. It became the first resort in the country which began to accept seasoned and demanding holiday-makers. But if Cancún, for instance, adopted a quite European look, Acapulco preserved its national flair.

Moreover, Acapulco de Juarez (this is the full name), being close to the official capital, is considered the capital of night life in Mexico. It offers beach and swimming in the lagoon in the morning, and an energetic nightlife. Acapulco remained its luxury Hollywood glow in the gone century. Now, this resort is considered to be quite democratic. Ordinary tourist can be scared by prices in some hotels like Las Brisas where celebrities opt to stay.

After a long destructive siege conquistadores won it. At this place was built the administrative centre of New Spain.
