Mexico beachesPick your pleasure from the more than 5000 beaches and resorts that dot Mexico's coastline - on the Pacific and the Baja Peninsula to the Gulf and Yucatan Peninsula.

On the Yucatan lies one of the country's most famous and luxurious beach spots, Cancun and Isla Mujeres, where over 2 million people are drawn each year for vacation or a quick winter getaway.

40 miles south, Cozumel is one of Mexico's largest islands featuring long stretches of white sand, tropical breezes and world class scuba diving. Meanwhile, a short hop on the ferry from Cozumel and you're enjoying the white sandy beaches and torquoise waters of Playa del Carmen.

Head west, and Mexico's most famous Pacific coast beach areas include Acapulco and further south, Puerto Escondido, a major attraction for surfers - as well as Puerto Vallarta, featuring cobblestone streets, a laid-back atmosphere, and magnificent sunsets.
