The beaches and coastlines of Mexico
With thousands of miles (9,330 kilometers) of coastline, Mexico offers everything one could want in the way of ocean-living, relaxing, exploring and water sports.
From soft, gentle breezes over warm brillant sand, lapped by gentle waves, to roaring and pounding surf, thrashing against black volcanic rock, and from misty and mystical jungles to high, shear cliffs, all provide opportunities for new experiences and finding different personalities of this magnificant country.
This Feature Section is dedicated to exploring the Mexico's coasts. The articles are only loosely organized, so that you can discover new delights along with re-visiting old places.
