Mexico's endless Pacific beach: sun, surf, sand, seafood and solitude Gerry Soroka

There's more to the Mexico seashore than skimboards, seafood and sun-bathing bronzed bodies: there is solitude. There are vast stretches of uninhabited or unfrequented beaches lounging serenely beside a roiling sea that stretches westward seemingly into infinity. read more

© Dr. Ilya Treyger
Cabo San Lucas, at the south end of Baja California Sur, can stand alone, a sparkling seaside gem.

The convergence of the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific makes it special. The thought that pirates once used it as a haven adds drama. Yachts anchored in the bay say "this is the place," a thousand miles from U.S. border strife.

There is a full-grown marina, a shopping center, high-rise hotels, fancy boutiques, expensive restaurants and clubs... read more

Playa Los Arcos: Mexican family ambience in Puerto Vallarta's picturesque Old Town Carol Wheeler

"Hotel Playa Los Arcos is the prettiest hotel in Puerto Vallarta's Old Town," a Canadian travel writer told me. I think she's right.

Tehuamixtle: the Cabo Corrientes shore on Mexico's Pacific coast Barbara Sands

The coast south of Cabo Corrientes, the southerly arm of our Bay of Banderas, is known as the Costa Alegre, Happy Coast, all the way down to Manzanillo. Barra de Navidad and Careyes are two of the better known spots.
