This has provided everyone an endless adventure that gives holidaymakers and even Travel YouTubers countless reasons to visit and stay at any of Mexico’s vibrant beach towns and cities.
The pristine blues and white sands of the many beaches that are speckled across the country’s 10,000 km-coast are its claims to fame. The Yucatan’s Caribbean charm has amassed a huge influx of tourists for years making Cancun and all its little sister cities and towns like Playa Del Carmen and Tulum the go-to options on this side of the country. Los Cabos, and Puerto Vallarta, claim the Pacific coasts, with a whole slew of pueblos magias in between, the Pacific side gives an even better twist to Mexico’s already jampacked landscape.
