Its rich history is reflected in ancient Mayan temples strewn across the jungles, ruins of Aztec civilizations, rural indigenous villages, Spanish colonial cities, silver-mining towns, and traditional seaports. Modern Mexico thrives along hundreds of miles of Pacific and Caribbean coastline, some of the most popular vacation real estate in the world.

Acapulco Experiences: • Check out the 2,000-year-old petroglyphs at the Palma Sola archeological site in El Veladero National Park. • Shop at the open-air El Parazal Arts & Crafts Market for ceremonial masks and silver jewelry. • Get picture-postcard views of the Acapulco skyline from nearby Isla de la Roqueta.

Discover old-fashioned fun and romance in one of the most beautiful bays in the world. The birthplace of tourism in Mexico, Acapulco was the first stop of jet-setters as early as the 1960s. Here, the disco, the swim-up bar, and parasailing were invented and popularized. With this history, plus warm hospitality, a carnival atmosphere, gorgeous beaches, romantic sunsets, and glamorous nightlife, Acapulco is truly the “queen of Mexican beach resorts.” Sun worshippers head straight to a string of golden beaches that sweep around the bay, each with its own atmosphere and ample opportunities for water sports, sunbathing, and romantic oceanfront dining. And get ready for tons of action, both on land and in the ocean, from snorkeling and sailing, to golf and horseback riding.

• Head to one of the tin-roofed shacks on Playa Puerto Marques for ultra-fresh seafood. • Spend the afternoon strolling, window shopping, and grooving to the music along El Zócalo. • View some of the best-known works of Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo at the Museo Dolores Olmedo. • Hire a fishing boat for a chance to land sailfish, tuna, dorado, and marlin.

Hours Hours Hours Hours Hours

Riviera Maya Experiences: • Buy fresh catch directly from fishermen at the pier in Puerto Morelos, a quiet place with a bohemian flair. • Shop for souvenirs at local handicraft shops in the charming fishing village of Puerto Morelos. • Go after white and blue marlin, blackfin, skipjack, and other sport fish on a charter out of Puerto Aventuras.

Embrace a wonderland filled with scenic and natural wonders, sugar-white beaches, and the most fantastic archaeological sites in Mexico. Just a few miles south of Cancún, the unspoiled area known as the Riviera Maya is an ideal base for exploring the authentic Mexico of Mayan ruins, sparkling cenotes, and some of the best beaches on the planet. There are also numerous modern resorts along the coastline, great shopping and nightlife, championship golf, and water sports galore. Stroll along lively La Quinta Avenida (5th Avenue), Playa del Carmen’s main drag, dotted with chic galleries, artisan boutiques, bustling cantinas, and eclectic eateries. Then walk in the steps of ancient civilizations at Coba, site of the tallest Mayan pyramids in the Yucatán, and at Tulum’s picturesque seaside ruins that make up the only Mayan port ever discovered.

• Perfect your tan on Akumal’s sun-kissed silky white sands. • Take a guided tour of the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, a virgin wilderness that covers a stunning one-fifth of the state of Quintana Roo. • Swim in underground rivers, stroll along jungle trails, explore mysterious caves, and watch vibrant pre-Hispanic dances at Xcaret Park. •

Drive the fairways on golf courses created by Jack Nicklaus, P.B. Dye, Greg Norman, Nick Price, Robert von Hagge, and Robert Trent Jones II.

1 Hour This awe-inspiring tour gives you a chance to get up-close-and-personal with dolphins like you’ve never imagined. You can pet them as they swim around you. These people-loving mammals enjoy the company so much that they will even let you reach for a hug, and you might just get a tender kiss in return. You’ll then take an exciting ride at full speed on the dolphin’s belly as you hold on tightly to the dolphin’s pectoral fins.

Los Cabos Experiences: • Check out fabulous desert rock formations, hot springs, and waterfalls with a hike in the Sierra de Laguna. • Join a tour to spot gray, blue, and humpback whales as they migrate to Baja’s sheltered lagoons. • Don scuba gear to explore the undersea world at Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park, the only living coral reef on the west coast of North America.

There’s no topping this Pacific paradise for boundless sunshine, striking landscapes, outstanding golf, and unbeatable resorts. Los Cabos has quietly evolved from a sleepy fishing village overlooking the Sea of Cortez into one of the most popular resort areas in Mexico, thanks to its dry climate, abundant sunshine, striking landscape, white-sand beaches, and clear sapphire seas. Now, it’s also famous as Latin America’s premier golf destination, home to some particularly beautiful championship courses, and a mecca for sport fishing. Take a boat ride to El Arco, a dramatic rock formation at Land’s End, where you can view the continent’s most spectacular sunsets. Tee off in a golfing paradise on picturesque and challenging layouts created by Jack Nicklaus, Robert Trent Jones, Jr., Greg Norman, Tom Fazio, Tom Weiskopf, Gary Player, and Tiger Woods.

• When the sun goes down, get ready for dancing, rockin’ out, and sipping cocktails to live bands or DJs in Cabo San Lucas. • Unwind on gorgeous beaches at popular Palmilla, palm-lined El Chileno, secluded Playa del Amor, and tranquil Playa el Médano. • Rent a sea kayak for a jaunt from Medano Beach across the bay to Lover’s Beach. • Drive an authentic “Baja 1000” racer across an untamed landscape of desert, arroyos, hillsides, and canyons.
