Mexico’s beaches are legendary. And we understand the need to escape in winter for sun, sand, swimming – and a margarita (or two)! But when you’re ready for some culture, Mexico’s colonial cities offer art galleries, insightful and quirky museums, amazing murals, colonial buildings, magical rooftop bars and delightful boutique hotels.
You can even combine the beach with some cultural exploration – quintessentially Mexican Guadalajara (Mexico’s second biggest city), for example, is only six hours away by first-class bus from Puerto Vallarta on the Pacific coast (which also happens to be known for its free Art Walk and fine dining).
