When it comes to those picture-perfect beaches, there’s nowhere quite like Mexico. If, however, you’re someone who also has a passion for adventure, then we know a few stunning coastal resorts that can fulfill your adrenaline needs, too. To help you find that sweet spot between beach bliss and adrenaline-spiking excursions, we’ve teamed up with travel specialists, The Adventures Group, to ask you a few simple questions…
Want to give your Insta followers a serious dose of FOMO?
Then head to Puerto Vallarta between December and March for an incredible whale watching tour. Vallarta Adventures’ sea-level raft offers the perfect vantage point for those ocean-bursting leaps. Just make sure your camera is at the ready.
Want to combine culture with island adventure?
Kick back, relax and let a luxury catamaran carry you off to the beautiful Isla Mujeres. Start by making the journey along Cancun’s stunning coastline, making several snorkel stop-offs along the way, before arriving on the island where you can taste the local food, explore the boutique stores or recline on the immaculate beaches totally at your leisure.
Is there someone special you want to treat?
We all know Mexico’s sunsets are among the most spectacular in the world, so a private evening cruise, courtesy of Cabo Adventures, is sure to do the trick. Climb aboard with a glass of sparkling wine in hand while the crew hoists the sails for a romantic jaunt along the Sea of Cortez.
Is a culture hit a must on a beach break?
If you can peel away from the beach parties for a day, then you can take a trip to the world-famous Mayan Ruins of Chichen Itza and embark on Cancun Adventures’ intimate tour of the giant pyramid of El Castillo and the surrounding archaeological ruins.
Are you an adrenaline junkie?
Then Cabo Adventures’ Outdoor Zip Line Adventure is definitely the one for you. Measuring more than 4,000 feet in length and reaching speeds of up to 100 kph, this high-octane excursion combines zip lining with hiking and abseiling for the ultimate rush.
