An underrated destination, Mexico City should be added to your bucket list. While many people solely think about Mexico through the sepia filter used in ‘90s movies about the country, Mexico City is a modern wonder and it’s time to see it filter-free. Many people come to Mexico City for the food and they are not wrong—the dining in the city is divine, and from street food to five-star dining, you’ll find everything you want here.
On the Sea of Cortez, just a short boat trip of around 1-1 ½ hours from La Paz, which itself is just 2 hours north of Los Cabos, is Isla Espíritu Santo; the island is a protected area and was declared part of a biosphere reserve by UNESCO in 1995. This paradise is exactly the kind of place you dream of when you think of the perfect island destination.
The radiant, white-sand beaches and contrasting red rocks of the island are some of the many things that make this area so beautiful. But it’s the crystal-clear waters of the Sea of Cortez, which the famous marine biologist, Jacques Cousteau called the ‘World’s Aquarium’ which attracts so many visitors.
The construction of at least nine new luxury hotels is under way in Los Cabos, Baja California Sur.
The chains investing in the area include St. Regis, Four Seasons and Hyatt. They will add around 2,000 rooms to the 18,000 already available to tourists in Los Cabos.
The head of the Los Cabos Hotel Association (AHLC), Lilzi Orcí Fregoso, said some of the construction had already started and more would start in the coming months. “We have around nine properties. Some have already started and others haven’t, be we know that they will open eventually … it’s important to mention that they’re super luxury, which consolidates [Los Cabos] as a luxury destination,” she said.
As one of the most popular beach destinations in North America, Cancun, Mexico, is famous for its turquoise waters, white-sand shores, luxury hotels and endless nightlife.
The Zona Hotelera, or Hotel Zone, is home to a 14-mile stretch of hotels that range from high-end, all-inclusive resorts, to student-friendly budget hotels. Though this area may teem with tourists who only seek constant pampering and sunshine, there is an authentic Mexican city just down the round in downtown Cancun. Unseen by travelers who don’t leave the confines of their resort, downtown Cancun offers a mix of tradition and modernity, and is home to many restaurants, shopping centers and outdoor markets where the locals spend their time. Not far from Cancun, travelers who seek out history and culture can delve deep into the Mayan ruins and archaeological sites at neighboring Tulum, Chichen Itza and Coba.
