Time to Visit or Re-Visit Mexico
If you haven’t been to the Pacific Coast of Mexico in several years, you really haven’t been there at all.
That’s why Americans are flocking there in record numbers. According to travel marketing firm MMGY, 2.9 million people travelled from the United States to Mexico. In a recent Virtuoso survey Mexico ranked 2nd behind Italy as a ‘Top Family Destination’.
This could be explained by the tremendous selection of upscale resorts.
Grand Velas Los Cabos has children and teens’ clubs as well as a baby concierge making even the tiniest guests happy. It’s been described by Forbes Travel Guide as “Los Cabos’ striking new beachfront beauty”.
The One & Only Palmilla Resort, also in Los Cabos, is a beautiful seaside escape that sits on 55 acres and offers 174 guest rooms. Besides a 20,000 square foot spa, 2 infinity edge pools and restaurants offering mouth-watering delights, the resort offers a 90 foot yacht for day use by guests.
But Mexico is more than family friendly. New resorts are attracting sophisticated travelers who look for all-inclusive luxury. According to Apple Vacations, Breathless Resorts provide a new kind of All-Adult experience for singles, couples, friends who want the ‘best of everything’ vacation.
Gogo World Wide Vacations provides escapes for couples at high-end luxury Dreams Resorts in Los Cabos while girlfriend getaways are prevalent at Secrets Puerto Los Cabos.
The Solaz, a Luxury Collection resort, recently opened amid 34 acres offering 128 guestroom and 21 residences with private entrances as well as artisan butler service.
Puerto Vallarta is a hit among young adults. According to the MMGY survey, 11% of Millennials and 9 % of Gen Xers plan to visit within 2 years.
Mazatlán is also making a comeback. In 2017 Mazatlán saw an 8% increase in international visitors. Always known for deals, a visit to Mazatlán now provides value with upgraded accommodations. Many hotels have updated rooms, restaurants, bars and beach areas. And the Malecón boardwalk has been renovated with new sidewalks, better lighting and a dedicated bike path.
Coming soon is the Nobu Hotel in Los Cabos, expected to open in early 2019. San Jose del Cabo will open doors to Zadún, a Ritz Carlton Reserve property.
Boasting ½ mile pristine beach, six restaurants and 5 pools with swim-up bars Hard Rock Hotel Los Cabos will surely be a draw.
With all the new and improved aspects of the Pacific Coast of Mexico, it may be time to re-visit.
