Mexico’s Pacific coast winds down from the borders of the USA all the way to Guatemala.

Attractions

Its many attractions include the city of Puerto Vallarta, the colonial towns and villages surrounding the city of Mazatlán, the lush jungles of the foothills of the Sierra Madre mountain range and of course its beautiful beaches, many famous for the great surfing they offer.

It’s a perfect place to relax but the more active can also explore forest canopy walkways, spot dolphins, walk or mountain bike.

Though many of the beaches are not suitable for swimming because of strong currents, some of Mexico’s finest hotels are dotted along the coastline making this part of the country perfect for a secluded beach stay at the end of any itinerary.

For those who have already visited the more frequented coast of the Yucatán Peninsula, spending a few days on the Pacific coast is an excellent way to see a little more of Mexico’s beaches and diverse landscapes. It is also ideal for those wishing to combine outdoor activities with a more tranquil beach stay than the Yucatán offers.

The ease of visiting the Pacific Coast often depends on the rest of your itinerary, which is where our specialists’ knowledge will be key to tailoring your trip.
