Puerto Vallerta – this region is actually several destinations rolled into one, each with its own unique character and charm. The River Cuale divides the town into North and South. On the southern end is the quaint romantic zone where the Playa Los Muertos attracts sun worshippers to its golden sand and countless beach bars. An average of 3.7 million visitors come here each year.
You’re encouraged to practice your Spanish although everybody can converse with you in English. From Tapas bars and taco stands to chic spots on the beach to farmers markets Puerto Vallarta is a foodie nirvana. Your only problem with this is you can’t possibly enjoy all of the city’s fine restaurants in one visit.
Mexican Riviera Cruises offer a real insight into Mexican life. Mazatlan endowed with a shoreline sprinkled with beckoning islands, a lovely seaside promenade, miles of golden beaches and blue lagoons it really lives up to its name of “Pearl of the Pacific”.
In Old Mazatlan or the Historic Centre life carries on as it did before tourists arrived. You might find yourself dancing to Banda, a form of music that injects Latin energy into German oompah music.
For the foodies amongst you shrimp doesn’t come any sweeter or fresher and the talented chefs all over town have mastered local recipes. Try them breaded in coconut, marinated cerviche-style in lime juice, mothered in garlic and butter, flambéed in tequila, spiked with Diablo sauce or just plain steamed.
Catch ghosts in Old Mazatlan. Whether in the historic downtown or along the seaside promenade, if you listen carefully, you might hear the whisper of a Melancholic song. That’ll be the ghost of Pedro Infante, Mexico’s legendary singer who spent his childhood in these very streets.
The Vibrant Downtown, Cabos San Lucas
Cabos San Lucas on the tip of Baja California Sur. Rambunctious Cabo San Lucas is party central with funky bars and the slick luxury Avenue Mall centred around the marina. Due to its proximity to the USA, Cabo San Lucas has been greatly influenced by North America, in terms of developments, shopping malls, real estate and vibes. However its unique remarkable setting is due to where the sapphire sea of Cortez meets the desert and mountains. You’ll probably have seen the iconic and much photographed arc, known as El Arco also going by the nickname Land’s End.
