All along the beautiful west coast of Mexico, the stretch of sun-drenched towns and villages from Cabo San Lucas to Mazatlán, Puerto Vallarta, Manzanillo and Acapulco are often referred to as the Mexican Riviera. Nicknamed after the ruggedly beautiful French and Italian coastlines by the popular cruise lines who ply these waters, this region is one of the most sought-after for its beauty, and each of the towns has an abundance of charming and comfortable Mexican Riviera vacation rentals.
Choose Mexican Riviera Vacation Rentals for Comfort and Fun
From sport fishing and sunning with movie stars in Cabo to dining and dancing the night away in exciting clubs in Acapulco, there are endless ways to play while staying in Mexican Riviera rentals.
Snorkel, Swim and Splash at Mexican Riviera Beaches
There are few better places to take a dip in the Pacific Ocean than on Mexican Riviera beaches. If you’re feeling social, head to Playa los Muertos in Puerto Vallarta where you can ride a jetski all day, and then sit and sip a cerveza at one of the many cafés that line the shore. For a quieter day of swimming and snorkeling, head to Playa las Gatas in Zihuatanejo Bay, where you can also spend your evening enjoying the freshest seafood at a restaurant overlooking the ocean. Anyone seeking solitude on a deserted corner of sand can even find what they need right in Acapulco, by heading to the Mexican Riviera beaches at Pie de la Cuesta, which are nearly deserted and ringed by trees.
Mexican Riviera Golf Courses Combine Challenge and Beauty
Mexican Riviera vacation rentals are extremely popular for another perfect way to spend a lovely afternoon in a tropical paradise: golf. Mexican Riviera golf courses are some of the best in the world. The region has a perfect climate, with dry desert air, cool Pacific breezes and bright sunshine all year round. It also has some of the most challenging golf courses in the country. The Vista Vallarta Jack Nicklaus in Puerto Vallarta has outstanding views, and played host to the 2002 PGA World Cup in the first year it was opened. The Acapulco Princess Golf Course was designed by the famous Ted Robinson, and has been named by Golf Digest as one of the top 25 Golf Resorts. Meanwhile, star-studded Cabo San Lucas is fast becoming one of the hottest golf spots in the region, thanks to the recent opening of a sixth championship golf course in the region.
Celebrated Fishing Grounds near Mexican Riviera Rentals
At the southern tip of Baja California, Cabo San Lucas is one of the world’s best places to go deep sea fishing. Famous since the time of Ernest Hemingway, this corner of Mexico is known as the marlin capital of the world, and it doesn’t end there. More than 800 species of fish can be found in these waters, including swordfish, snapper, wahoo, mahi mahi and tuna. The biggest international fishing tournaments are held in Cabo, with prizes of up to $1 million to be won.
Sport fishing excursions in Cabo, as well as off the coast of Acapulco and Puerto Vallarta, are a popular reason for considering Mexican Riviera rentals for your next trip.
