MAGNIFICENT TOWNS FOR MAGNIFICENT PEOPLE

All along the west coast of Mexico, the Pacific offers more than beautiful, endless, sandy beaches. Its towns, recognized by UNESCO as part of humanity’s heritage, are home to a splendid array of adventure, history, culture and natural beauty—guaranteeing unforgettable immersion into an unexpected world all its own.

An hour and a half from Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, lies San Sebastián del Oeste, at the foot of the Western Sierra Madre Mountains. Once a mining city, its cobbled streets, white buildings and picturesque adobe houses take visitors on a journey to the past, concluding with a trip to Cerro de la Buffa, boasting stunning views of Banderas Bay highlighted by incredible sunsets.

Going north, a land of multicultural delights is found in the little town of Sayulita, Nayarit, where travelers may be tricked into believing they’ve found their way back into the Sixties. This paradise exudes an enchanting atmosphere where peace and love meet with nature. Nayarit’s international surfing events are recognized all around the world, as is the area’s art scene.

Traveling south—just a four-hour drive from Acapulco—lies the colonial town of Taxco, Guerrero, part of the “Triangle of the Sun” route. Once an important silver mining town, today, Taxco offers charming cobblestone alleys, cable car rides featuring scenic views of elegant colonial facades, antique palaces and age-old churches—all of which have stood the test of time.

BETWEEN MOUNTAIN AND SEA

Nested between the Sea of Cortez and the Sierra de la Giganta mountains lies Loreto, Baja California Sur, a village bordered by crystal-clear waters and keen on preserving its fishing traditions. Alternately, travelers may discover a more bohemian environment in Todos Santos, where surfers and artists always come looking for inspiration.

A SURREAL PARADISE AWAITS

Dreamlike landscapes defy reality in Quintana Roo, from the Lake of the Seven Colors in Bacalar to Tulum, where a ceremonial temple faces the starry nights of the Caribbean. With all this magic within reach, the question is not whether you are interested in going, the question is: How far will you go?
