Vacations to Mexico, from coast to coast

A vacation to Mexico means discovering a diverse country full of bustling cities, endless beaches, majestic mountains like the Sierra Madre Occidental, and sweeping desert landscapes. Home to over 95 million people, this stunning country covers nearly 2 million km2.

Whether along the Pacific or the Caribbean coast, travellers take pleasure in long, lazy days on the beach with a cold cerveza, spectacular ocean views, deliciously fresh products, and many activities, including deep-sea diving and visiting Mexico’s archaeological and historical sites.

Mexico City, the capital

Located in a valley at an altitude of 2,240 m, Mexico City is home to almost 20 million souls. This charming capital city is full of historical and cultural attractions. Its busy nightlife, spicy cuisine, vivid neighbourhoods and friendly locals seduce many travellers.

The Pacific or the Caribbean?

Many travellers opt for the Pacific coast—Puerto Vallarta, Acapulco, Huatulco, Los Cabos or Manzanillo—for almost guaranteed sunshine, long beach vistas and dark blue waves. For water sports lovers, especially surfers, the impressive waves off the Pacific beaches are a little piece of paradise.

Others choose vacations on Mexico’s Caribbean coast to enjoy the white-sand beaches and turquoise waters of Cancún and Riviera Maya. Cozumel is particularly popular with divers looking to explore beautiful coral reefs. Those who are archaeologically inclined tour Maya and Toltec ruins, such as Chichén Itzá in Tulum.

Mexican cuisine and flavours

Mexican cuisine is a reason in and of itself to travel to Mexico. Fajitas, tacos and guacamole made from freshly picked avocados, sweet salsa that tastes like pure sunshine, black beans and grilled fish abound. Typical Mexican cuisine is renowned for its tasty sauces and spices that make every dish a sensation.

Presence of Sargassum in Mexico and the Caribbean

Depending on the weather conditions, winds and tides may bring large quantities of Sargassum to shore. Since seaweed moves with the ocean currents, quantities may vary by place and day. Transat would like to inform its clients that this natural phenomenon beyond its control affects several parts of Mexico and the Caribbean. Although the presence of this brown seaweed is greater than usual, our hotel partners are making every effort to clean the beaches when necessary.

Weather in Mexico can vary throughout the year. The chart below indicates monthly average temperatures and rainfall so travellers can plan the perfect vacation at the right time and pack accordingly.
