Vacationing in Mexico

Mexico - a land of contrasts

Mexico lies between the US in the north and the borders of Guatemala and Belize to the east while its extensive coastline takes in the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean, and the Pacific Ocean. The landscape and terrain of Mexico vary from the snowy mountains of its Sierras to deserts in the north and rainforests in the southeast while a vacation rental in Cancun, Acapulco, and Los Cabos puts you in tourist destinations with world-class holiday facilities.

Getting to Mexico

Although it's possible to drive across the border from the US most visitors to Mexico fly through one of its international hubs such as Mexico City, Cancun, and Tijuana International Airports. Once in Mexico, you'll find a country with six distinctive regions from Baja California in the northwest to the Pacific Coast area around Chiapas and the Yucatan Peninsula with its impressive archaeological sites.
