The beaches of Mexico are among are among the most beautiful beaches in the entire world. The sand is so soft and pure and white. The water temperature is usually warm most of the year which makes it a great vacation destination nearly any time. We traveled to Mexico on vacation two summers ago and stayed right on the beach. We rented a large home with two other families and it was absolute paradise for a full week.
You can expect the following from the beaches of Mexico:
- Great shops for food and merchandise
- Soft, clean sand
- Lots of tourists (very busy)
We barbecued on the beach in the evenings as we take margaritas and told stories of the adventures of that day. We played volleyball during the day while the kids went swimming off in the ocean in the pool. It then became a tradition where we all took afternoon naps on the beach. It was pure paradise and we did this for 8 straight days! We enjoyed every single minute, and when the trip was over not a single person wanted to leave and we even considered extending!
There is an old saying not to drink the water in Mexico. We learned the hard way that this might actually be true. Sarah, my sister, had a severe stomach bug the last half of the trip which was very unfortunate. She was in the hotel room pretty much the entire time, and only started feeling better in evenings after 5:00pm each day. We all thought that was nice timing, as it was just in time for happy hour! We think she got the bug from drinking water in the mornings after her walks on the beach. As she would go for long walks and then drink 3 or 4 bottles of water to stay hydrated after watching the sunrise on the beach.
Another great beach activity we did was playing frisbee. This was a lot of fun, as the kids could play too and they had a ball playing each afternoon. The great thing about the beaches in Cancun were that there were so many vendors on the beach catering to the tourists, that they had lots of good food and clothing kiosks for the whole family. We had hot dogs one day, tacos the next, they gyros the next. It was so much fun, and all right on the white beaches!
The home we rented had a nice walkway right out to the beach, and was just a perfect location for easy beach access. We went out each night and build a fire on the beach and sat around and told stories for hours. It was great fun and the water was just perfect. We highly recommend the beaches of Mexico for a great vacation for the whole family. Lots to do and the beaches are really gorgeous!
