If you’re the sort of person that likes to strut their stuff on holiday, showing off their glamorous side and the summer wardrobe that you’ve not been able to dust off for a few months, then Mexico may figure further down the list that Californian beaches or Florida resorts. Yet Mexico possesses destinations far more glitzy, stylish and at the same time exotic and new that’ll excite your senses and compliment anyone who likes to match their personal style with incredibly Instagram-able locations. Look no further than some of the destinations listed below that’ll surely cater for all tastes and styles—and on a budget, too.
There’s something decidedly old-world about seaside Veracruz, with its high-rise buildings and colonial plazas in the Spanish romantic style. Sun-baked stone structures with sepia and cracking paintwork provide the kind of olden-days aura that’ll suit anyone with an affinity for the rustic, rugged, peaceful and vintage. Waterfalls splash in the town’s open spaces, while lazy palm trees rustle in the soft sea wind at one of Mexico’s most beguiling locations.
Inland, experience a step up from Veracruz’s old-world charm at the expense of the seaside atmosphere. Here, you’ll be struck by the incredible aged aqueduct that scythes through the small city, passing by colonial villas and administrative buildings that make for some memorable and atmospheric evening strolls. To really sample the wonders of this stylish and charming city, search Hoteles en Queretaro to find a place to stay inside one of the architectural wonders that you’ve been admiring from the outside—there are some real gems to be found that cater to those who appreciate traditional luxury service.
A swirling metropolis of frenzied activity, those travelers that brave Mexico City for a few days will almost certainly get more than they bargained for – thankfully, usually for the better. It’s a city that takes some getting used to, what with its sheer size and density, but the fusion of Latino and European styles—from its food to its fashion, the city’s architecture to the inhabitants’ accent—is what provides the real draw that keeps people salivating for more. Hiring a private driver will ensure you’re never stuck for directions or bus routes; getting from A to B in the city can take a while, but you’ll be richly rewarded for making the effort.
This is where you’ll want to head for the purest of beach resort holidays, if that’s that sort of thing that gets you onto the plane. You’ll find soft white sand, crystal clear waters, shoreside bars and beachside private huts, exquisite Mexican seafood and delicious local cocktails, buzzing bars, atmospheric restaurants, dazzling golf courses, stunning views, and so much more in any one of the beach resorts on this sun-soaked peninsula. Don your beach clothes and light clothing and you’ll rarely find a destination with so much to offer for those with a beach addiction to feed.
So yes, Mexico offers a splendid array of destinations, all of them sophisticated in their own way. Book your vacation now for an unforgettable trip.
