Baja California and Pacific Coast
The Pacific Coast of Mexico from California in the north to Guatemala in the south has some exceptional beaches and an outstanding mix of resorts. Over hundreds of miles the landscape changes from desert to scrub to forest and cliffs intermingle with sandy coves and long stretches of beach.
Baja California in the north has attracted US visitors for many years. Its resorts, as a result, are amongst the more commercialised and developed. This stretch of coast has an exceptional sunny climate with little rain and stunning beaches. The area between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas – known as the Baja corridor – has in particular become a playground for the rich and famous with some exceptional, large all-inclusive resorts and luxurious hotels.
Further south there are other well known resorts such as Acapulco, which still retains that special allure, and Puerto Vallarta, a newer arrival with some outstanding resort hotels. For those seeking a more relaxed and discreet beach holiday then less developed stretches of the coast near Zihuatanejo and Puerto Escondido, which still has stretches of unspoilt beach, will appeal.
Copper Canyon extension:- Copper Canyon, four times the size of the Grand Canyon in USA, is a spectacularly scenic area in Northern Mexico. The best way to see the Copper Canyon is on the famous Chihuahua al Pacifico train. This amazing journey takes a day starting at 6.00am and passing over 37 bridges and through 86 tunnels before arriving at your destination at 9.00pm.
Copper Canyon stays can be included in any tailor made itinerary and fit well with visitors travelling between the Pacific Coast and Mexico City.
