Mexico has long been considered the ultimate destination for high-end holidays. From the magnificent white sand beaches of the Caribbean to the stunning Pacific coast, the world-class mega cities, ancient ruins, delicious food and incredible hotels, holidays to Mexico offer absolutely everything the luxury jet-setter could possibly want.
Boasting the 13th largest economy in the world, Mexico is not just peddling to tourists, the country is home to its own wealthy population who enjoy the first class accommodation, dining and activities from coast to coast. The following destinations are some of Mexico’s finest and a visit to any of them is sure to provide a memorable and incredible holiday.
Cabo san Lucas
Often referred to simply as ‘Cabo’, this Mexican gem sits at the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula. As a first class destination Cabo attracts all kinds, from celebrities to champion golfers to families. What they all have in common is a desire to live luxuriously along Mexico’s Pacific coast.
Visitors to Cabo can indulge in scuba diving, sport fishing, surfing, sailing and of course, sunning. With a range of incredible fine dining options and wild nightlife, visitors can find absolutely anything they want. For a memorable visit, consider Esperanza Resort, which rises to the top of the many upscale resorts in the area for its massive rooms, incredible spa, private beach and other extras that make it exceptional.
This Mexican destination lies further south than Cabo and has a very different feel. With skyscrapers lining the beaches and breathtaking cliff-top mansions, Acapulco was the ultimate destination for jet setters in the ’80s and ’90s. While other resorts have come up in recent years, this resort has had some work done and is looking better than ever. The modern incarnation of Acapulco is full of top-tier golf courses and impressive new hotels. For first rate luxury at a reasonable price, this is the premiere destination.
For the ultimate in Acapulco hospitality consider the Banyan Tree Cabo Marqués. This stunning resort offers incredible views from luxurious villas that are dotted along the oceanfront. This beautiful hotel is full of charm and the service is impeccable.
Cancún and the Mayan Riviera
Arguably Mexico’s most famous resort destination, the Mayan Riviera lies on the historic Yucatan Peninsula and was created in the 1970s as a planned community/resort. There are pristine white sand beaches that border lush jungles, visitors can explore ancient ruins, the weather is unbeatable and the sheer volume of high-end accommodation is unparalleled in Latin America.
From innovative eco-reserves to charming colonial towns, the Mayan Riviera offers a real variety of activities. For those looking to truly immerse themselves in luxury during their stay, consider the Ritz-Carlton Cancún. From the outside it may seem like just another one of the area’s mega-resorts but this hotel is a classic, with incredible rooms, a spa you’ll never want to leave and truly spectacular beaches.
Mexico is a remarkable destination. From its vibrant and authentic local culture to its incredible resort towns and bustling metropolises, this Latin American jewel is the perfect luxury destination.
