Luxury vacations in Mexico range from vacations in resort areas such as Cancun, to stays in stately Spanish colonial haciendas in the countryside, to luxuriant spa hotels like the Verana for a secluded luxury beach vacation south of Puerto Vallarta. Or you can choose a luxury Mexican vacation staying in one of the acclaimed five-star hotels in sophisticated and cosmopolitan Mexico City. The St. Regis, located on Mexico City's Paseo de la Reforma, is an excellent example of a chic and elegant city hotel with a full-service spa and fitness center, swimming pool, tennis club, and several gourmet dining spots.
Luxury resort vacations in Mexico are perhaps the most popular, and there is a wide variety from which to choose. There are all inclusive resorts that cater to families with children as well as those for adults only. Look to the resort areas around Puerto Vallarta, Acapulco, and Cancun for the most choices. Luxury vacations in Mexico at these resort areas also provide the best nightlife and range of activities, including snorkeling, scuba diving, and surfing. You can enjoy luxury resort vacations in Mexico in large complexes such as Las Brisas where you can stay in opulent casitas and villas with your own private infinity pool. More casitas and villas are available at the exclusive Esperanza on the beaches of Cabo San Lucas, which boasts one of the top spas in the country.
If you want luxury resort vacations in Mexico with more seclusion and exclusivity, you might want to try the La Casa Que Canta, located in Zihuatanejo. This beautiful boutique resort offers private residences complete with personal chef, maids, butler, swimming pool, and private beach access so you can be utterly pampered on a tropical luxury vacation.
Mexico boasts scores of beautiful beaches, on both its Pacific and Gulf of Mexico coasts. Luxury trips to Cancun are perhaps the most popular with Americans, and this area on the Yucatan Peninsula has the widest variety of accommodation choices, most of which are located along its gleaming beaches. Since many young people come for Spring Break Cancun holidays, there is plenty of nightlife and a considerable number of relatively inexpensive beach resorts. But there are also several choices for luxury trips to Cancun that stay in world-class hotels and resorts. You can choose the JW Marriott Cancun or the ME Cancun Hotel for a taste of large resort complexes, or you can opt for smaller, boutique hotels like the Villa Rolandi. Luxury trips to Cancun can also be done on the water, as this is a very popular port stop for ships on Caribbean cruises.
While this country is celebrated for its pristine beaches and sparkling coastline, luxury vacations in Mexico in the interior are very rewarding, providing a glimpse into the country's Spanish colonial history and the feel of landed gentry. Here you will find the Casa de Sierra Nevada in San Miguel de Allende, typical of the haciendas of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The property is made up of six colonial mansions with beautiful rooms and suites set in lush gardens. There is an acclaimed full-service spa, three gourmet restaurants, and even a respected culinary school offering guests instruction in traditional Mexican cuisine. There are numerous boutique hotels like this scattered all across the country.
