Small City Hidden Gems
There are huge cities in Mexico with all sorts of life and culture. The smaller areas of Mexico can be just as breathtaking, especially with beach views.

Whether it's a hidden gem quaint restaurant, fresh margarita, or must-see walking path, it's worth the stop.
Stunning Beaches Galore
Now, let's return to those beautiful beach views and margaritas mentioned. Several areas of Mexico have breathtaking beaches and then some. Not to mention, Tulum offers some incredibly spectacular views and fun in the sun. With just under a 50,000 population, this can be an excellent area for some much-deserved quiet beach time compared to a much larger size in Cancun. After all, a moment of relaxation is well deserved!
If all of this hasn't convinced you to go to Mexico, maybe, consider the Baja peninsula. We're confident it will. Baja is like a country within a country.

This is where you can see some incredible out-of-this-world beaches. It's like nothing you've seen before.
