Mexico has been a favorite destination for sun-seekers for decades- this is no accident. This North American nation boasts all of the laid-back vibes and turquoise waters of the Caribbean, along with some vibrant Latin American flare. For as much as we all love Mexico, though, it seems as though tourists have difficulty exploring the rest of the country, outside of the Yucatan and Quintana Roo tourist hotspots. The truth is, the rest of Mexico has so much to offer you maybe even more than the likes of Cancun and Cozumel, which have been on “go here” lists for decades.
Especially as many of these destinations become overrun with tourists and party crowds, they have begun to lose their allure for those seeking a more luxurious experience. We could all use the perfect, relaxing, sun holiday come next winter, but it can be hard to see past all the buzz about Chichen-Itza and its counterparts. That’s why we’ve put together this list of Mexico’s top 9, under-the-radar destinations that you need to add to your bucket list. Whether
you’re looking for a beach destination or a little bit of cultural immersion, we’ve got you covered. Happy vacation planning!
Manzanillo offers plenty of variety to appease every type of traveler from the budget backpacker to the luxury seeker. Here you’ll find all of the amenities you desire including golf courses, boating charters, and upscale restaurants or surfing, hiking, and beach club DJs. You’ll also be guaranteed a home base that rocks your world since Manzanillo has all types of accommodations for every budget and preference.
Yelapa is a quiet fishing village with a twist. Despite maintaining its small-town allure, a small ex-pat community has left its mark on Yelapa, leaving behind trendy café’s, restaurants, and bars. You’ll find a decent, but not overwhelming amount of more “touristy” things to do such as paragliding, yacht clubs, Latin dancing, or horseback riding tours which will help to balance your desire for relaxation and activity.
This city in the region of Oaxaca is a paradise for surfers and ex-pats alike. With a beach that
ranks among the top ten for professional wave-seekers, ethical dolphin watching tours, and a
bioluminescent lagoon, you’ll never find yourself running out of things to do.
If your idea of an idea Mexican vacation involves an iconic, colorful Spanish façade, look no
further than Guanajuato City. You’ll be delighted by the vibrancy of its streets, its cultural flair,
and frankly, its romantic undertones. Visiting couples should be sure to visit the renowned “alley
of the kiss” and snap a couple of photographs. These stone roads represent Guanajuato’s very
own version of Romeo and Juliet, the story of a wealthy young girl and her star-crossed lover.
Guadalajara boasts plenty of parks, natural viewpoints on the outskirts of the city, and a large freshwater late for slower-paced outdoor recreation. What more could you ask for?
Travelers in the municipality of La Paz mostly benefit from bigger resorts, though some smaller traditional hotels are available in the heart of the city. You can also choose to camp on the beach which is an excellent choice if you’re visiting February to march, as you can often see grey whales migrating along the coast.
It won’t take long for architecture fanatics to fall in love with the city of Puebla. This charming
town features extravagant, traditional, and historic buildings galore. You can also enjoy the
volcanic landscape that cradles the city on days when you’re feeling a little more adventurous, or
if you have an outdoor enthusiast you need to appease.
If you’re looking for the next best sunbathing destination, you definitely need to consider a stay in Huatulco. Free of crowded resorts, this coastal town is filled to the brim with beaches,
waterfalls, and docking ports perfect for relaxing. Huatulco is also the ecotourist’s dream with ethical jungle excursions at the heart of their tourism industry.
Gastronomy music and sandy beaches are the names of the game in Mazatlán. If you love a good resort but have grown tired of the Cancun atmosphere, you need to give Mazatlán ago.
